TULIA, TX (January 12, 2023) – A teen male died while three other teens were injured in a rollover crash on Highway 86 on January 8.
Officers identified 19-year-old Zaida Alvarez as one of the three teens who survived the accident.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the collision happened at approximately 4:00 AM. Based on a report, Alvarez was a passenger in a 2019 Chrysler 300 that was traveling west on the highway prior to the crash.
Due to unknown reasons, the vehicle veered off the roadway into the north ditch and hit a concrete culvert, causing it to vault into the air. Subsequently, the Chrysler landed on its left side and began to roll, ejecting two unsecured passengers.
As a result, a 15-year-old male from Tulia suffered grave injuries. Crews transported the victim to Swisher Memorial Healthcare System, where he died from his injuries.
