EL PASO, Texas - A 50-year-old man is dead after being struck by a vehicle following a series of car collisions, officials said.

Oscar Ceballos was driving a 1996 Yamaha V-Star west on I-10 when he collided with an unoccupied marked police vehicle that was being used to redirect traffic caused by a separate, unrelated traffic collision, police said.

Ceballos became separated from his motorcycle when he hit the police vehicle and came to rest in the far right lane of 1-10. As a uniformed officer approached Ceballos, a 36-year-old man driving a 2000 Chevrolet Impala struck the patrol vehicle, then struck Ceballos.
Ceballos died at the scene and the driver of the Impala was treated at a local hospital.

The driver of the Impala is now being charged with intoxicated manslaughter. His identity will be released upon completion of the formal booking process, officials said.

The Special Traffic Investigations unit has determined that speed, alcohol and driver inattention are factors in this fatal collision. This is the 35th traffic related fatality of 2014.
