Collision on Hwy 90 in China sends 3 to hospital

At approximately 9 p.m. on Wednesday, October 7, 2015, DPS troopers responded to a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Highway 90 and Turner Road in China, Texas. Three people were transported to St. Elizabeth hospital.

According to trooper Stephanie Davis, a Jeep was traveling southbound on Turner Road and a Chevrolet pickup truck was traveling westbound on Highway 90. The driver of the Jeep attempted to make a left turn from Turner Rd. in front of the Chevrolet and was struck on the driver side of the vehicle. The impact of the collision caused the Chevrolet to veer into the center median, roll over and catch fire.

The 16-year-old driver of the Jeep and his three teenaged passengers were not injured in the crash. The driver of the Chevrolet, Obed Reyna (30) of Mexico, was transported to St. Elizabeth hospital for observation. His front passenger, a 30-year-old female, was also transported to St. Elizabeth hospital, and sustained non life-threatening injuries. There was a 5-year-old child in the Chevrolet, who was secured in a booster seat at the time of the crash and was not injured.

The westbound lanes of Highway 90 were closed briefly. The 16-year-old driver was issued a traffic citation for failure to yield the right of way at a stop sign and violation of his driver’s license restriction.

The investigation is ongoing and there are no further details to be released.
