Teen Killed, Patricia Torres, Others Injured in Car Accident in Nacogdoches, TX

UPDATE (November 17, 2023): Additional details released by authorities say they found evidence confirming the Dodge's taillights were indeed on prior to the rear-end collision. That brings us back to the key question, then: Why didn't the Ford slow down?

UPDATE (November 13, 2023): In further statements from authorities, the driver of the Dodge car was identified as 48-year-old Patricia Torres. Her injuries were described as incapacitating, along with two teenagers apparently in similar conditions.

Additionally, authorities say they have not been able to confirm if the truck driver failed to control speed and if the Dodge possibly had inoperable taillights. It's not clear if they're bringing up these factors following the discovery of some kind of evidence or if this is just speculation on possibilities they're considering throughout their investigations. But considering they have yet to publicly answer these questions, I just hope authorities are being as thorough as possible behind the scenes to get the victims and families involved a conclusion they deserve.

Nacogdoches, TX — October 30, 2023, a teen was killed, and one was injured in a two-vehicle collision in the 4500 block of East Main Street in Nacogdoches, TX.
