Members of the Colorado City Police Department, Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado City Fire Department, Mitchell County EMS and Department of Public Safety Troopers responded to the call regarding the accident that happened in the 800 block of East 2nd Street. Three occupants, all from Snyder, were extracted from a red Chevy Cruze, the only car involved in the crash.
The Cruze was traveling west on 2nd Street when it failed to make the curve and ran into a metal electrical pole. The vehicle was traveling fast enough that the pole was embedded in the middle of the car when it came to a stop.
A male juvenile passenger in the backseat sustained critical injuries and was transported to an Odessa hospital by helicopter. Domingo Gomez Jr., who was a passenger in the front seat, was pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace Rick Grissam.
The driver of the vehicle, Maria D. Castillo, was arrested and booked into the Mitchell County Jail on charges of 2nd Degree Intoxication Manslaughter with a Vehicle and 3rd Degree Felony Intoxication Assault with a Vehicle.
She suffored minor injuries in the crash.
The case remains under investigation by the Colorado City Police Department.
According to CCVFD chief Tom Carlock, the mother of the minor released some information regarding his condition on Sunday. She said the 13-year-old boy sustained a broken pelvic bone and leg. He has undergone surgery and is doing ok.
