2-car accident kills former UTEP actor

A two-car accident early Friday, July 18, claimed the life of a former University of Texas - El Paso Dinner Theatre actor and left two other individuals with injuries. Officials at the scene of the auto accident say the 27-year-old man was trapped in his vehicle following the collision.

Accident reports state that the victim, a Killeen native, was heading west on Veteran's Memorial Boulevard in El Paso just after 4 a.m. when his vehicle was involved in a collision with an eastbound vehicle. Police say the driver of the westbound vehicle was unresponsive inside the vehicle when they arrived and the Killeen Fire Department was dispatched to the scene to extract him for evaluation.

Two individuals were in the eastbound vehicle. The driver was transported to a nearby hospital and was later listed in stable condition. The passenger, however, was taken via airlift to the hospital with serious injuries. The accident remains under investigation by El Paso police.

Once an accident is over, there are many details to consider. Those affected may miss time at work, suffer lost wages and have to pay enormous medical and hospital bills. Recovery time could also mean repeated doctor's office visits and even physical or emotional therapy. A person who is injured in an accident that was not his or her fault could have legal recourse against the person who was deemed to be responsible. A legal representative can evaluate a case from a personal injury perspective and help the victim determine whether to move forward with a legal action.
