Christopher Rodríguez was arrested in Texas for illegal trafficking, causing a accident that left several injured.

Rodríguez, 31, was detained by a highway patrol from the Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDPS, for its acronym in English), towards the southeast of the state in an area of ​​cattle ranches.

According to the legal documents of the case, consulted by MundoHispánico In Texas, on Friday, February 19, 2021, at 3:00 p.m., the TxDPS patrol car was making its normal rounds on I-59 east of Laredo.

Highway I-59 is a road that begins right in Laredo and runs parallel to the coast in front of the Gulf of Mexico, until it reaches the Houston metropolitan area and goes up to the city of Texarkana, almost with Arkansas.

Many human and drug traffickers use that highway to travel north because it is less guarded than I-35, the other interstate highway that leaves from Laredo heading north and goes up to Dallas.

The TxDPS highway patrolman noticed that the GMC Yukon truck had broken taillights and tried to stop it for a routine violation, so he turned on his hazard lights to warn him to stop.

However, the Hispanic driver of the GMC Yukon truck, instead of heeding the orders of the patrolman, sped up and tried to lose himself from the agent through a rural road.

The GMC Yukon driver veered off the I-59 main road and onto FM-2895 country road, speeding about five miles south.
