For unknown reasons, the GMC neglected to stop for the red light at the intersection; as a result, a southbound 18-wheeler on Tidwell Road collided with the right front bumper of the GMC.

Rivera and all three of the minors who were in the GMC sustained injuries as a result of the crash. The 43-year-old man who had been traveling in the Toyota also reportedly incurred injuries. All five were transported to local medical facilities by EMS for treatment.
