El Paso News

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Two people died in a head-on collision around 2:40 p.m. in Tornillo, the Texas Department of Public Safety said.

Stephen James Govarker, 72, and his passenger, 57-year-old Sherri La Rhonda Rogers, both of Las Vegas, died. They were heading east on Interstate 10 in a 2020 Renegade Motorhome when a tractor-trailer drove into oncoming traffic and hit them head-on.

Both were wearing a seat-belt, investigators said. The medical examiner pronounced them dead at 7:36 p.m.

The driver of the tractor-trailer has been identified as 48-year-old Francisco Zamora of Baldwin Park, Calif. He is listed in stable condition, and he was also wearing a seat belt.

Authorities say Zamora was on the right lane traveling west on I-10 when he lost control, causing the tractor-trailer to travel off the roadway, across the center median, and into the eastbound lanes before hitting the Renegade Motorhome.
