Herlinda Castro Dies After Driver Runs A Stop Sign in Central El Paso

El Paso, TX (February 5, 2020)- Herlinda Castro died and two others were injured when a driver failed to stop at a sign in Central El Paso on Wednesday February 5th.  The collision occurred around 6:45 p.m. on North Piedras Street and Harrison Avenue. The driver of a 2015 Dodge Challenger ran the stop sign and broadsided Castro’s 2003 Ford Explorer. Herlinda Castro, her 18-year-old passenger Ashley Saucedo and the driver of the Challenger were all taken to University Medical Center for their injuries, where Castro passed away.  A police news release stated that the driver’s failure to yield the right of way and high speed were key factors in the wreck and charges are currently pending.

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the families of Herlinda Castro and Ashley Saucedo. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
