EL PASO, Texas-- One person is dead, and another is seriously injured after a head-on collision in far East El Paso county.
The accident happened just before 7:00 P.M. at I-10 westbound and Horizon.
El Paso County Sheriff's Office spokesman Mariano Valle told KFOX14 that an older gentleman was driving westbound when he lost control of his vehicle for undetermined reasons. That caused the car to spin around, before stopping and facing oncoming traffic in the westbound lanes. An oncoming car hit that man's car head-on.
Both lanes in the area were closed for several hours as investigators cleared the area.
Both drivers were rushed to a local hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
Deputy Valle said one of the two drivers has died from injuries sustained in the accident, but could not identify either man, or say which of the drivers had died.
Valle said the office's Special Traffic Investigators unit had been alerted about the fatality.
More information was expected to be released later Tuesday.
