The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has released the identity of the driver who tragically lost his life in a fatal two-vehicle crash that occurred on Saturday evening. The deceased has been identified as 34-year-old Edinburg resident, Sergio Alejandro Padilla-Luna.

The collision took place at approximately 6:40 p.m. on FM 1925 and Tower Road. The crash involved a white Dodge Ram pickup and a gray Chevrolet Trailblazer.

Preliminary investigations conducted by DPS revealed that the Dodge Ram, occupied by a man, woman, and child, was traveling westbound on FM 1925 and was attempting to make a left turn onto Tower Road. Meanwhile, the Chevrolet Trailblazer, driven by Padilla-Luna, was also traveling westbound behind the Dodge.

Padilla-Luna was unable to control his speed and collided with the Dodge. Despite the severity of the crash, the occupants of the Dodge did not require hospitalization.

DPS Troopers are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the collision. Alcohol may have been a contributing factor, although confirmation awaits the results of a pending toxicology report.
