Three Killed in Midland Head-On Collision on FM 1788

Three people were killed and a fourth victim is in serious condition after a head-on collision between a pickup truck and an oil company welding truck in Midland on FM 1788, officials reported.

A DPS official told NewsWest9 that one of the oil company workers was identified as 47-yar-old Manuel Loera. The driver of the pickup truck was identified as 26-year-old Odessa resident, Francisco Ortega. His passenger, who was also killed in the crash, was identified by officials as 27-year-old Joshua Sterns, a resident of New Caney.

The accident occurred at approximately 7 a.m., authorities said.

A fourth person was injured in the Midland crash on FM 1788 near County Rd 160. That victim was transported to Midland Memorial Hospital. That victim was identified as 27-year-old Ehrenber, Arizona resident, Jesus Carballo.

According to DPS reports, the driver of a tan pickup truck was traveling south on FM 1788 when it crossed into the opposite lane of traffic and collided head-on with the oil company welding truck. Police believe that the pickup truck was passing another vehicle.

The driver and a passenger in the pickup as well as the driver of the oil company truck were all killed in the Midland accident.

Police are still investigating the scene of the head-on collision in Midland and have not yet revealed if safety restrains were used at the time of the wreck.

Our thoughts and prayers go out those involved in this tragic crash as well as their loved ones.
