Felipe Lucio Killed, Others Hurt in Jim Wells Co., TX, Car Accident

Jim Wells County, TX -- February 4, 2017, Felipe Lucio was killed, several others injured, after two vehicles crashed into each other on the highway.

Authorities from the Texas Department of Public Safety were called to the accident scene around 2:00 a.m. along State Highway 281 between the towns of Premont and La Gloria.

Their preliminary investigations indicate that 88-year-old Lupio was a passenger in a Chevy Tahoe that was traveling southbound on the highway. Also traveling southbound was a Pontiac Grand Prix carrying five passengers.

Reports say that the Chevy lost control and began to spin around southbound lanes. This put it in the path of the oncoming Pontiac, which then crashed into the Chevy.

As a result of the collision, Lupio sustained fatal injuries. She was taken to Christus Spohn Hospital memorial where she later died. All of the other motorists involved were also taken to Christus Spohn for treatment. Their injuries weren't specified.

Authorities said that slick roads were a contributing factor to the accident. They say the accident is still being investigated.
