One man was killed and an Odessa man was injured in a two-vehicle crash Wednesday in Glasscock County.
Highway troopers responded to the crash around 8:07 p.m. Wednesday near State Highways 158 and 137, 14 miles west of Garden City, a Texas Department of Public Safety news release stated.
The release detailed that 29-year-old Johnny Reyna of Edcouch was driving east in a 1999 Kenworth truck tractor towing a semi-trailer and approaching a traffic light at the intersection of SH 148 and SH 137. Maman Muchtarman, 49, of Odessa was driving north on SH 137 in a 2014 Peterbilt truck tractor with 22-year-old Christian Enriquez-Rodriguez of Hidalgo.
Reyna reportedly disregarded the red light at the intersection and collided with Muchtarman’s vehicle, the release stated.
A justice of the peace pronounced Reyna dead at the scene, the release detailed. Muchtarman was taken to Medical Center Hospital with incapacitating injuries and Enriquez-Rodriguez as taken to Midland Memorial Hospital with non-incapacitating injuries.
The release detailed that Reyna was not wearing his seatbelt at the time, and it is unknown if the other two were wearing seatbelts.
