El Paso, TX (9/19/2021) – A woman was killed in a crash involving five vehicles Sunday morning.
The accident happened around 2 a.m. on I-10 West near the Fountains at Farah. A Ford Focus was headed west on the interstate when it lost control and hit a cement barrier. A Chevy Silverado stopped after arriving at the initial crash, and a Honda Civic rear-ended the Silverado. The impact caused a rollover crash which then caused a chain reaction of crashes.
A man, 21, driving a Silverado T-boned another vehicle driven by 27-year-old Kandy Abigail Duarte-Cassiano.
She was killed at the scene.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
T-bone car accidents, also known as side-impact collisions, can cause drivers and passengers to suffer severe injuries.
These accidents are unique because unlike other types of collision, such as rear-end or head-on collisions, victims of T-bone collisions are only separated from the colliding vehicle by a thin door and window. The window can shatter on impact, showering the victim in tiny shards of glass as he or she comes into contact with the colliding vehicle’s hood.
