Garza County, TX (10/10/2020) – A person was killed and five others were injured in a two-vehicle wreck in Garza County Saturday afternoon.

The accident happened on U.S. Highway 84 around  3:00 p.m. A tire from a Lincoln Navigator blew out while it was headed northbound. The driver lost control and applied the emergency brake. The Navigator then crossed the center median, rolled, went airborne, and landed on the roof of a southbound Chrysler Town and County van. 

The driver of the van was killed in the wreck. He was identified as 35-year-old Chistopher Wayne Scates.

Two passengers in the van – a 25-year-old and a 2-year-old boy – were  taken to the hospital for injuries.

The driver of the SUV was also transported for injuries. She was identified as Rebecca Marie Salinas, 23.

Three 4-year-old boys were passengers in the SUV and injured due to the wreck. One boy suffered incapacitating injuries while the two others suffered non-incapacitating injuries. All were taken to the hospital.
