EDINBURG – The victim of a June 9 auto-pedestrian accident in Edinburg has been identified as 43-year-old Andres Garza of Corpus Christi.

Garza, a subcontractor with the Texas Department of Transportation, was setting up construction zone signs on the southbound lanes of Interstate Highway I-69C near FM 490.

A driver towing a vehicle veered onto the median and struck Garza, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Edinburg police are still investigating the accident, and they have not said if the driver will face any charges.


Frequency of highway construction zone accidents in Texas

The vast majority (85%) of fatalities in construction zone crashes are motorists, not construction workers. Nearly 1,000 people are killed in work zone accidents across the U.S. every year, and Texas has more work zone fatalities than any other state (about 150 deaths per year).

Highway work zones are inherently dangerous as thousands of construction zone accidents happen every year. Most are due to distracted drivers and negligent construction companies.
