CAMERON, Texas (FOX 44) – A Cameron Yoe High School assistant football coach has been arrested after fleeing the scene of a hit-and-run crash over the weekend.
Texas Department of Public Safety Troopers responded to the crash, with injuries reported. A 2010 Ford F-250, operated by 43-year-old Guadalupe “Lupe” Navarrette Florez Jr, of Cameron, was travelling southbound on CR-140, approaching FM-485.
The investigation revealed that Florez ran a stop sign at the FM-485 intersection. The Ford collided with a passing 2017 Mazda travelling westbound. The Mazda was occupied by two adults and three juveniles from Killeen.
Florez reportedly fled the scene after the collision, and failed to assess anyone inside the Mazda. The Ford’s license plate was left at the scene of the collision, and Florez was found a short time later. Florez was arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Failure to Stop and Render Aid.
All occupants of the Mazda were transported to Scott and White ER in Temple with non-incapacitating injuries.
