4 Dead in Laredo Auto Accident on Cuatro Vientos and Highway 359

LAREDO, TX (August 17, 2023) – Sunday night, a brutal fiery crash on Cuatro Vientos and Highway 359 killed 4 people.

The crash occurred at about 1:30 a.m. on Cuatro Vientos and Highway 359.

As Horacio Lopez drove northbound toward Loop 20 at the time, he witnessed the fiery scene.

“I was going on the up ramp of Loop 20 and 359 and I was right on top of 359. I saw a lot of cars stopping there and I saw the smoke and I stopped to see down, and the car is on fire,” added Lopez.

The Laredo Police confirmed that the driver lost control of the car, striking a curb rail and causing it to go over it and crash into the highway’s retaining wall.

Then, the car caught on fire, and all four teens succumbed to injuries at the scene.

Meanwhile, it is not clear if the impact or flames led to their death.

Moreover, the authorities suspect that speed played a role in the crash.

Laredo Police added that two men were 18 years of age, another man who was 17, and a 15-year-old girl inside the car.

The vehicle involved in the fiery crash was a Black Toyota that belonged to the 15-year-old girl but it is not clear who was driving.

“They were driving northbound they were coming from a gathering in south Laredo and going to another gathering in north,” reports said.

“So basically, that is where they were going. Other people were there and several people were telling each other what happened so there was a presence at the time by the exit.”

At this time, the circumstances that led to the crash remained unclear. Once additional details become available, the public will be notified.

Due to the limited information available, the authorities continued to investigate the crash.
