Laredo, TX (August 10, 2019) On the morning of August 9th, a fatal car accident happened in the 6900 block of Texas 359, near Old Milwaukee Road. A blue 2000 Nissan Frontier ran a red light at the intersection and collided head-on with a red 2015 Kenworth tractor. Upon impact, the tractor collided with a brown 2019 Dodge ram and a black Ford 1-50. The accident took place at around 11:30 a.m.

When emergency crews arrived, they found the driver of the blue Nissan trapped and immediately extricated him. He was rushed to Laredo Medical Center, but he did not survive his injuries. He has been identified as Esequiel Sanchez-Mota. At least one other person involved in the accident sustained injuries.

The Laredo Police Department are still investigating the collision.

Our thoughts are with the family of Esequiel Sanchez-Mota at this time.
