EL PASO- Police have released the name of the woman killed in a head-on collision on US-54 this morning.
Imelda Diaz, 34, was in the passenger seat of Econoline Prisoner Transport Van when an Army MRAP collided with the van. No one in the MRAP was injured.
At this time investigators do not believe speed or alcohol are factors in this crash. The van had a total of 8 occupants inside, the driver a guard and 6 prisoners. The 6 prisoners appear to have not been wearing seatbelts prior to the crash. All other occupants were secured in their vehicles by safety restraints. All other injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.
