EL PASO - A deadly start to the weekend. A man died in a crash that nearly ripped his pickup truck in half.
It happened around 1 a.m. today, on the Chelsea exit, on I-10 east.
Police said Armando Jimenez, 43, lost control of his truck and slammed into a concrete pillar, that was supporting the overpass. Jimenez was wearing a seatbelt, but police think he was speeding.
This is the 28th traffic-related death in El Paso, so far this year.
