VICTORIA (VICAD) - A Corpus Christi man was killed Thursday in a traffic accident near Victoria.

The Victoria Advocate reports 51-year-old Pedro Xavier Pena was killed when an SUV rear ended his car near a construction zone on U.S. 59.

According to Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Ruben San Miguel, a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban hit Pena’s 2018 Ford Fusion as it slowed, almost to a stop, for traffic near the construction zone.

DPS Troopers are investigating why the driver of the Suburban did not stop, San Miguel said.

According to San Miguel, Pena’s wife, Kathleen, was also in the car at the time of the accident.

After the initial impact, a third vehicle, a 2009 Nissan Titan, collided with the Suburban, San Miguel said.

No information about the conditions of the accident survivors was available.
