MONTAIN HOME, Texas – Two El Paso area men died Wednesday morning after they were ejected from a pickup that wrecked on Interstate 10 near Mountain Home, Texas.

Two women in the same truck were in stable condition in hospitals as of 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Jesus Antonio Felix, 24 of El Paso, and Noel Reyes-Mendez, 22 of Anthony, Texas, were killed at about 8:30 a.m. after the 2007 Toyota truck they were in rolled over on Interstate 10 East near Mountain Home, officials from the Texas Department of Public Safety said.

The truck was driven by Amber Calderon, 19 of Canutillo, Texas. It was traveling east near the 488 mile marker when a passenger’s cellphone rang, distracting the driver, according to an initial investigation by Trooper Jim Behrens.

The truck drifted into the median and the driver took evasive action, but the truck rolled two or three times, Behrens said.

Felix and Reyes-Mendez were not wearing seat belts and were ejected from the vehicle, Behrens said. They died on scene.

Calderon was taken to Peterson Regional Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening, and a third passenger, Haley Holguin, 21 of Anthony, Texas was flown to University Hospital in San Antonio. She was in stable condition as of Wednesday afternoon.

Felix and Reyes-Mendez worked as officers at the Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility, They graduated from the academy in 2012, according to Gregg Narcantel with the New Mexico Corrections Department.

The truck’s four occupants were El Paso residents headed to South Padre Island for spring break, Behrens said.

All I-10 lanes open following truck fire at Perkins, near Dalrymple

All lanes are open on Interstate 10 near the Perkins Road and Dalrymple Drive exits after an 18-wheeler truck involved in a crash caught fire about 10 a.m. Sunday, Baton Rouge police said.

The crash and resulting fire prompted authorities to shut down all westbound lanes of Interstate 10 near the Perkins Road exit for several hours while crews cleaned up the road, said Cpl. Don Coppola Jr., a Baton Rouge police spokesman.

No one was injured in the fire or crash, Coppola said, which backed up traffic for miles on Interstate 10 between four and five hours.

The truck was carrying liquid latex, but the main tank never ruptured, said Curt Monte, a Baton Rouge Fire Department spokesman.

However, the saddle tanks holding the diesel fuel did rupture, spilling fuel onto the interstate. It didn’t take long to extinguish the fire, but it did take hours for sand trucks to soak up all the diesel fuel on the road, Monte said.

Coppola said the crash happened when a vehicle ran up under the truck. He said he did not have any additional information on the crash or the other vehicle involved.
