Falfurias, Texas (May 4, 2019) – A man was killed in a multi-vehicle pileup on Tuesday afternoon near Falfurias, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The incident occurred at about 4 p.m. April 30, on State Highway 285, east of Falfurias.

The big rig then continued and hit a stopped 2007 Freightliner tractor-trailer, triggering a chain-reaction collision with three other vehicles. A 2006 Kia Sedona got pinned between the big rigs after the crash.

The driver of the 2019 Kenworth, identified as Fernando Davalos, 43, of Los Fresno, was pronounced deceased at the scene.
