Accident takes local woman's life

December 10, 2010

Olga Hernandez, 55, of Big Spring, died of injuries she received in a one-vehicle accident in the 1700 block of Gregg Street late Wednesday.

Separate accidents Wednesday left one Big Spring resident dead and two in serious but stable condition in area hospitals.

The fatal accident occurred late Wednesday in the 1700 block of Gregg Street. Big Spring Police Department officers responding to the scene discovered that 2007 Saturn driven by Gabriel Paredez, 23, of Big Spring, had struck a traffic signal pole at the intersection of 17th and Gregg.

Both Paredez and Olga Ann Hernandez, 55, a passenger in the vehicle, were taken by ambulance to Scenic Mountain Medical Center's emergency room, where Hernandez died a short time later, BSPD Public Information Officer Sgt. Tony Everett said in a statement released Thursday morning.

Paredez remains hospitalized with “severe” injuries, Everett added.
Both were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident and alcohol was not a factor, police said.

“It is possible the driver had a seizure, causing him to leave the roadway,” Everett noted.
