Location: 4900 SH 181  South Bound
Incident: Fatality Crash
Case Number: C1702452

Corpus Christi Police Officers were dispatched to a major accident on the 4900 block of SH 181 in the Southbound lanes. Officers arrived and discovered a white Chrysler 200 that had caught on fire and a black Chevy Camaro were involved in the crash. The fire was extinguished by responding fire fighters. Officers discovered that the 25 year old female driver of the Camaro and the 33 year old male driver of the Chrysler were both deceased. Follow up investigators arrived on the scene and determined that the Chrysler 200 was traveling the wrong way (Northbound in a Southbound lane) on the highway striking the Chevy Camaro. Investigators believe that both victims died on impact.

Investigators spoke with witnesses and at this time have not been able to determine where and how the driver of the Chrysler got on the highway. Both of the deceased have been transported to the medical examiners office. This is still an ongoing investigation and we will release more information when it becomes available.
