EL PASO, Texas — Special Traffic Investigations responded yesterday to Diana Dr. and Gateway North Blvd. on a 2 –vehicle collision resulting in a fatality. Investigators learned 30 –year old Catherine Ann Polanco was eastbound in the right lane at the 9800 block of Diana. 60 –year old Kenith Earl Smith was traveling north in the center lane of the 9400 block of Gateway North. Both vehicles entered the intersection and a T-bone type collision occurred. The Jeep Commander driven by Polanco struck Smith’s Lincoln Navigator causing the vehicle to spin out, collide into and wrap around a traffic light pole. Emergency responders utilized the Jaws of Life equipment to extricate Mr. Smith, who succumbed to his injuries at University Medical Center. His passenger, 57 –year old Sandra Smith suffered serious injuries and was admitted to UMC where she remains in stable condition. Polanco sustained minor injuries. A red light violation is believed to be the main contributing factor in the crash, however, the investigation continues into which driver was at fault. This is the 33rd traffic fatality of 2021 compared to 41 this time last year.

We all know the temperatures here in El Paso can be brutal but inside a car is like an oven.

Never leave a child inside a car.

Even on mild or cloudy days, temperatures inside vehicles can quickly reach life-threatening levels. Never leave a child alone in a car: https://bit.ly/hotcars2021

If it's 80 degrees outside, it takes only 10 minutes for the temperature inside a car to reach near 100 degrees. Leaving windows slightly open doesn't help. Children should never be left unattended or be able to get inside a vehicle. Safe Kids Worldwide NHTSA

My heart weeps !!!
i cried when i saw the story about the German shepherd left without food and water { the most basic of needs} it tears at my everything....i have a German Shepherd ...he is 106 lbs of sweetness .. he loves everyone and every ball to play with...i can't imagine this...my brain does not comprehend. If Jennifer De La Cruz is guilty i wish that she die the same way everyday for the rest of eternity !! Please Your Honor give her the maximum punishment that law says you can give her...please !! Then send her to God to explain why she thinks she should go to heaven. We were put here to care for those that can't care for themselves. I am sickened inside that i now have this picture in my head. I know i will see this poor animal rejuvinated at "The Rainbow Bridge" for i am a dog too !!!
