Carlos Javier Venegas Dead after Wreck in Cameron County

The accident happened just after 1 a.m. near George Bush Park. Police believe a 31-year-old man was headed in the wrong direction when he hit an Audi SUV head-on. Both vehicles caught fire as a result, and both drivers died at the scene. 

A child, 2, riding with the man was airlifted to Texas Medical Center, where they later died. 

As of 6:15 a.m., all westbound lanes of the tollway remained closed at FM 1464.

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

Head-On Collision Lawyers

Head-on collisions are more severe than minor fender benders or other types of car accidents. The injuries that result from head-on collisions are often serious and require immediate medical attention. The most common head-on accident injuries include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, whiplash, and many more. For the case above, a head-on crash led to the death of three people due to the extent of injuries suffered in the crash.
