Five Family Members Are Killed When a FedEx Truck Hits a SUV in South Texas


A crash between an SUV and a FedEx truck in south Texas on Tuesday killed five family members, according to the state.

According to Staff Sgt. Rene Cordova of the Texas Highway Patrol, the deadly accident happened near Eagle Pass, just east of the border between the United States and Mexico. The 2019 delivery truck and the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe were both involved.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said that the people who died were Jose Martinez, 71; Noemi Jimenez Martinez, 61; Joanna Martinez, 34; Samantha Martinez, 25; and a girl, 10 years old.

The police said that all four adults were dead at the spot. The girl, whose name was not given, died on the way to the hospital in an ambulance, according to the police.

A gray 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV was traveling west on U.S. Highway 57 while the FedEx truck was traveling east. Around 7:50 p.m., the FedEx truck crossed into the SUV’s lane of traffic and hit it head-on.

At first, local TV stations gave the wrong information that both cars were going east before the crash.

The reason of the crash was still being looked into by troopers.

A FedEx driver was also hurt in the Texas accident

Local media said that the driver of the FedEx truck was also hurt in the crash and was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries that were not mentioned.

“Our thoughts are with everyone involved in this terrible accident, and our deepest condolences go out to the families and friends who have lost loved ones,” David Westrick, a FedEx spokesman, told USA TODAY on Thursday. “We are fully cooperating with the authorities who are investigating right now because safety is our top priority.”
