CORPUS CHRISTI -

UPDATE: The Nueces County Medical Examiner has identified the victims as 29-year-old Joshua DelBosque, 59-year-old Tamara Kindred and 16-year-old Aujuni Anderson. All were residents of Corpus Christi.


Three people are dead following a crash at SPID and Kostoryz. It happened just after 11:20 p.m. Sunday.

A 29-year-old driver in a red car was traveling westbound on SPID when he ran a red light and t-boned a silver car headed northbound on Kostoryz, according to Corpus Christi Police. Officers say that man died at the scene.

A 59-year-old woman and another woman, possibly in her late teens, were in the silver car that was hit. Both women died from injuries sustained from the accident. Both are from Corpus Christi. Police don't know if the women are related.

Police say the driver of the red car was speeding when he ran through the red light. Lieutenant Timothy Frazier with the Corpus Christi Police Department said alcohol may also be a factor.

"It's really kind of a moot point, but we do believe that alcohol was a part of it because of some of the evidence we found on the scene," said Lt. Frazier.

All three of the victims were trapped in their vehicles for some time. Police shut down SPID & Kostoryz and Kostoryz & McArdle while they worked to clear the scene.

When KRIS 6 News spoke to police they had not notified the relatives of the victims so no names were released. The medical examiner typically releases that information at a later time.

"If everybody did the speed limit, we'd probably shrink down our crashes about 98%. Speeding is one of the main factors of people crashing. I wish it didn't happen that way, but it does unfortunately," said Lt. Frazier.
