Personal Injury Lawyer Dallas News: Former Texas politico dies after Colorado car crash

Past El Paso County Commissioner killed in multi-vehicle Monarch Pass accident.

Dallas, TX(–A five-vehicle collision in Colorado, on Sunday, left a former County Commissioner of El Paso, Texas dead, and his wife seriously injured, as reported by the Houston Chronicle. The Colorado State Patrol say, a recreation vehicle traveling westbound on U.S. 50 along the Monarch Pass swerved into the right-hand lane sideswipping a Lincoln Town car. The Town car reportedly then sideswiped a Toyota Camry, which sent both cars careening off the side of the road. The RV then hit an eastbound Nissan Altima head on, which caused the Nissan to rollover onto its side. The debris resulting from the crash struck a fifth vehicle, but no one traveling inside the fifth vehicle was reportedly hurt.

Colorado troopers identified the driver of the Nissan as the former El Paso County Commissioner, Miguel Solis, who was pronounced dead at the scene of the tragic accident. Solis wife, Felipa, was airlifted to Saint Mary’s hospital in Grand Junction for treatment of her serious injuries she sustained in the multi-vehicle collision. The driver of the RV, Ray Stout, 79, of Montrose, Colorado was also pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
