Cactus, TX (November 13, 2021) – An accident reported in Hartley County just outside of Cactus claimed the lives of two victims. On November 10, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the scene of an accident on Farm to Market Road 281.
Reports from local authorities show that 35-year-old Maximiliano Gabriel-Gutierrez was driving a 2006 Ford Expedition east on Farm to Market Road 281 when his vehicle collided with a Mack Truck, which was driven by 55-year-old Julio Niubo-Olazabal.
The impact of the crash sent the Expedition into a ditch where both Gabriel-Gutierrez and his passenger were ejected.
Julio Niubo-Olazabal and Maximiliano Gabriel-Gutierrez were both pronounced deceased at the scene from their injuries.
The passenger of the Ford was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victim injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of Julio Niubo-Olazabal and Maximiliano Gabriel-Gutierrez. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
