EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — A 42-year-old man died in a single-vehicle crash Saturday early morning, May 20, according to the El Paso Police Department.

Police say they responded to a domestic disturbance call at 1:24 a.m., at an apartment complex located at 670 N. Carolina.

A 45-year-old woman reported to the officers that she had an argument with Ivan Ignacio Frescas, 42, who refused to leave her alone. Officers learned that Frescas had a handgun in the car.

As officers were investigating the incident, Frescas returned to the address. He was then ordered to show his hands and step out of the car but he refused.

Upon Frescas’ refusal, one of the officers deployed a Taser to detain him, which he managed to break free from. Frescas then backed up the car nearly pining the officers and then fled at a high rate of speed.

As Frescas fled away, an officer responding to assist saw the vehicle going in the opposite direction. The officer turned around to attempt to conduct a traffic stop but lost sight of the car due to a curve in the roadway. As the officer drove towards the direction the vehicle had fled, the officer found that Frescas had crashed.

Special Traffic Investigators found that Frescas lost control at the curve at 8000 Yermoland, resulting in striking a guardrail and a rock wall.

Police confirmed Frescas died from his injuries.

Additionally, Investigators are awaiting test results to determine if any alcohol or drugs were involved.

This is the 22nd traffic fatality of the year as compared to 28 at this time last year.
