A Big Spring man died from injuries suffered in a one-vehicle accident in Midland early Sunday.
Midland Police Deparment officials say Robert â€śTitoâ€ť Vasquez II died early Sunday morning after he lost control of his vehicle while driving the wrong way down a one-way street.
The accident occurred just past midnight in the 500 block of W. Illinois, records state.
According to reports, Vasquez was east-bound on Illinois â€” the wrong way â€” at a high rate of speed at 12:47 a.m. when he lost control of his vehicle. His car then left the roadway, striking a tree head-on on the driver's side.
The public is invited to the dedication of the Russ McEwen Family Aquatic Center Wednesday morning.
The center will be renamed in honor of the former Big Spring mayor during ceremonies scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Debbie Wegman, director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau, said Wednesday's dedication will not mark the opening of the center for the summer.
