Jimmie Brownfield Car Accident, Death – One of the drivers involved in a two-vehicle collision that occurred on Sunday morning north of Seagraves and resulted in the deaths of five people has been charged with intoxication assault, intoxication manslaughter, and felony failure to stop and render aid. This person’s name is Ramon Aguilar, and he is from Seagraves. The authorities claim that Aguilar, 24, fled the site of the accident and was subsequently found by tracking dogs from the Brownfield Jim Rudd unit on 319 CR 692 at 10:11 a.m. in the sleeper berth of a truck tractor.
According to the state police, Aguilar was driving a white Dodge Ram pickup truck that was following a brown GMC extended cab pickup that was heading south. Because of the collision between the Dodge and the GMC’s rear end, both vehicles were forced off the road and flipped over in the west ditch. Four of the five people that were inside the GMC were thrown out of the vehicle. Romulo Molina, 39, of Sherman was the sole person of the GMC who was wearing a seatbelt and was not thrown from the vehicle when it crashed. He was the front right passenger.
Luis Valenzuela, 26, of Sherman, Romulo Molina, David Dominguez-Juarez of Mexico, Isabel Garcia-De La Cerda, 35, also of Sherman, and Juan Carlos Enriquez Mendoza, 31, of Mexico were all murdered when the GMC they were traveling in crashed. They were all delivered to South Plains Forensics so that they could be identified there. During the collision, the front passenger of the Dodge was ejected and flown to the University Medical Center in Lubbock by Aerocare.
The driver of the Dodge was not injured. During the collision, he was not wearing his seatbelt, which contributed to the severity of his injuries. It is not clear whether or not Aguilar was wearing his seatbelt when the accident occurred, but he was not thrown from the vehicle.
