Family members processing death of loved one killed in Highway 90 crash

SAN ANTONIO – Family members are still trying to process the death of their loved one, who was killed in a crash on Highway 90. 

Police on Saturday released new information on a deadly crash that shut down part of Highway 90 Friday night.

According to authorities, 23-year-old Aaron Anthony Trevino was driving a Mercedes westbound on Highway 90 when witnesses said he abruptly crossed multiple traffic lanes and went off the right shoulder of the highway.

Trevino, who was wearing his seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

“I got a call from his mom that Aaron was in an accident and didn't make it. I was at work when I got the news,” said Trevino’s father, Anthony Trevino.

A preliminary report states that evidence at the scene showed Trevino attempted to steer back onto the highway but ended up rolling over multiple times.

“This is the worst feeling ever. I just want to go and comfort him,” said Aaron Trevino’s mother, Emma Garcia.

Aaron Trevino’s father-in-law was also in the vehicle when the crash happened. He wasn't wearing a seat belt and was ejected, police said. He had to have his left foot amputated after being taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center in critical condition.

It's unclear what caused Aaron Trevino to lose control of the vehicle. His wife, Jazmine, now a single mother raising their 10-month-old daughter Lilliana, is still trying to process her husband's death.

“I don't want to make it seem like it's not affecting me, but I know I need to be strong for her, because she can feel it,” Jazmine said.

Aaron Trevino didn’t have life insurance, so his co-workers are helping to facilitate a fundraiser at the Pan American Golf Association from 5:30 p.m. to midnight Thursday.

Trevino’s family said they hope the proceeds are enough to give him a proper funeral and burial.
