CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – A San Antonio couple was killed in a head-on collision just before midnight Saturday on Mustang Island.
Corpus Christi police told KSAT that a 44-year-old male driver and his 42-year-old female passenger were traveling north toward Port Aransas in a Lexus sedan when a Dodge Ram Pickup hit their vehicle.
Dylan Holland, 24, was driving the truck that struck the sedan in the 7500 block of Highway 361, police said.
Angie Segundo said of the man who died was her son, Juan Segundo, and the woman was his wife, Angela. They leave behind three children and eight grandchildren.
“I’m just thinking about him. He would come every day for coffee,” Angie Segundo said about her son. “After church, he would come every single night, and he would sit with my husband by my bed.”
She said her son was supposed to come back Sunday to play the bass in church Sunday morning.
“It was suppose to be another great day another great Sunday, but it turned into tragedy,” she said. “And not to see him there, it just felt unreal. It felt horrible. It didn’t matter that the bass wasn’t there. It just mattered that he wasn’t there.”
According to a news release, police believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. A blood draw warrant for Holland was obtained and he was subsequently arrested and charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter.
Police said the couple died at the scene, and Holland was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries before he was arrested.
Holland was booked into the Nueces County Jail.
