Man Killed in Motor Vehicle Crash in Far East El Paso

UPDATE: A fatal motor vehicle crash occurred early Sunday morning in far East El Paso, resulting in the death of one man and minor injuries to another individual, according to the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office.

Details of the Crash

The incident took place at the intersection of Eastlake and Rojas at approximately 6:06 a.m. Deputies from the Sheriff’s Office swiftly responded to the scene. The driver of a Ford Focus, identified as 28-year-old Carlos Balandran, was found unconscious. Medical personnel were immediately summoned to provide assistance. Unfortunately, Balandran succumbed to his injuries after being transported to a local hospital.

Investigation Findings

Preliminary investigations indicated that Balandran was traveling north on Eastlake behind another vehicle. Regrettably, he failed to control his speed and collided with the rear of the other car, causing significant damage to both vehicles. The Sheriff’s Office has mobilized the Special Traffic Investigators unit, responsible for examining fatal and serious accidents, to conduct a thorough investigation.

Seatbelt Negligence

The Sheriff’s Office disclosed that Balandran was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash, leading to a severe head injury. This serves as a tragic reminder of the critical importance of seatbelt usage to prevent severe injuries and fatalities in motor vehicle accidents.

Comparison to Previous Year

This incident marks the seventh traffic fatality in El Paso County this year, in contrast to nine at the same period last year. Authorities are urging all drivers to exercise caution and adhere to traffic regulations to reduce the number of preventable accidents on the road.
