Reeves County, TX (1/10/2020) – A woman is now dead after colliding head-on with a semi-truck in Reeves County.
Wajma Popal, 44, was headed west on Interstate 10 in her Nissan Altima when a semi-truck driven by 57-year-old Esteban Padilla-Mena going east crossed into the westbound lane. Mena struck Popal head-on and also struck the semi-truck that was driving behind Popal.
Popal was pronounced dead at the scene.
The people in both semi-trucks were not injured.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

The negligent actions of Mena resulted in not only the wrongful death of Wajma Popal, but in a collision with another semi-truck. An investigation of this accident will prove essential due to the fact that a commercial truck put multiple motorist’s lives at risk. Because the commercial truck collided head-on into Popal’s car, Mena, and the trucking company, may be liable for any and all damages.
