Alice Families Mourn Deaths of Four Men in Fiery Crash

CORPUS CHRISTI - Four families are in mourning after a truck crash killed several men from Alice headed to pick up a vehicle in Florida.

Wednesday afternoon their Dodge Ram veered off Interstate 10 and slammed into some trees. Mark Guerrero, Ovidio Villarreal, Steven Garcia and Arnold Galvan III all died at the scene.

Witnesses told state troopers the truck erupted in flames, which kept anyone from attempting a rescue.

There's so little left of the truck troopers say they may never know what caused the crash.

We spoke with the family members today. All were numb with disbelief over four lives cut short. Three of the victims had children.

Manuel Gonzalez, an uncle of Arnold Galvan III, told us, "he's got two little daughter... twin daughters that.. he left behind. They're asking right now where their daddy is and they're just telling them he's at work. That's all they can say."
