Driver killed in downtown crash

Posted at 12:16 PM, Oct 16, 2019

Corpus Christi police say a pickup was speeding along the 400 block of N. Chaparral St. around 4 a.m. when the driver sideswiped at least three parked vehicles.

The truck, driven by 42-year-old Kenneth Allison Jr., crashed into some palm trees and a traffic signal pole. He died at the scene.

The impact left the truck mangled and bent nearly in half, and that stretch of Chaparral Street was closed to traffic this morning.
