One individual has died following a major accident that occurred in the 2300 block of W. South Loop Wednesday morning.
Jose Rodriguez, 24, was pronounced dead at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth due to the injuries sustained in the accident.
Jose Rodriguez and Manuel Rodriguez, 20, were traveling in a 1997 red Ford Mustang when the vehicle left the roadway and struck a concrete culvert causing it to overturn. One of the occupants was ejected from the vehicle and both were air lifted to JPS Hospital.
“Manuel Rodriguez is still listed in critical condition and in ICU at JPS Hospital,” the Stephenville Police Department released in a statement Friday morning.
A black 2014 Volkswagen Jetta driven by Maria Mata, 45, with a child passenger, attempted to make a left turn from S. Dale Street onto W. South Loop. Mata and the child were uninjured in the accident and the cause is still under investigation by the Stephenville Police Department.
