Amarillo man killed in one vehicle rollover

Wednesday evening, Amarillo police officers were dispatched to a motor vehicle crash at the Echo-Mirror connector.

Upon their arrival, officers discovered a 1985 Chevy pickup driven by Fernando Guadalupe Garcia, male, 18, of Amarillo, had been northbound on Mirror St at a high rate of speed. Garcia lost control of his truck as the road was starting to curve, left the roadway, and rolled the vehicle.

Garcia died at the crash scene. Justice of the Peace Richard Herman has ordered an autopsy.

Speed and no seat belt are factors in the wreck. It is possible Garcia was on his phone at the time of the collision.

The incident is being investigated by the Traffic Investigation Squad of the Amarillo Police Dept.
