Police Investigate Fatal Accident on Morgan Avenue
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Police are continuing to investigate the fatal accident Thursday that claimed the life of a 13-year old boy.
At this point, police are still going through witness statements and evidence. They said they will decide later whether any charges will be filed as a result.
"Once we determine with 100-percent certainty who is at fault, the driver will probably be cited for causing the accident," said Sr. Officer Robert Nunez of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "Other charges may follow, but that will come at the conclusion more than likely of the investigation."
The accident happened just before 6 p.m. Thursday, at the intersection of Morgan and Santa Fe. Police said the driver of a Honda ran a red light and was t-boned. The impact sent it into another vehicle that was sitting at the light.
The 13-year old boy, John Chapa, was ejected from the Honda, and was pronounced dead at the scene. The boy's mother was driving. She said the sun prevented her from seeing the red light.
