Local News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – A one-vehicle crash claims the life of a man from Lyford.

It happened this afternoon on FM 1018 and Tres Norias Circle in Willacy County.

DPS officials say the driver, identified as Carlos Naranjo, failed to stay on his lane and drove off the right side of FM 1018.

Naranjo then overcorrected his Ford Explorer casing the vehicle to skid off the roadway and into a field where it rolled over.

We’re told he was not wearing a seatbelt and sustained massive head injuries. 

Alcohol may have been a factor in this deadly crash.
