EP Police Respond To Multiple Tragic Incidents On St. Patricks Day
El Paso Police had their hands full dealing with multiple incidents on St. Patrick's Day across the city.
St. Patrick's Day turned deadly and unlucky for a few El Pasoans as El Paso Police responded to four separate incidents, including a pedestrian death on I-10, a stabbing, another traffic accident involving a motorcyclist, and another accident across the city that involved a car crashing into a home.
St. Patrick's Day was the first holiday that many El Paso bars reopened, welcoming patrons back after being closed due to the pandemic.
As El Paso Police prepared for a long night ahead of St. Patrick's Day, multiple incidents overlapped each other as four different situations occurred before 10 p.m., stretching from West El Paso to the Lower Valley.
Pedestrian Struck – I-10 By UTEP
Sadly, a pedestrian ran across the highway and was struck and killed on I-10 East near UTEP. The incident caused traffic backup for hours as all eastbound lanes of I-10 were closed between Schuster and Porfirio Diaz. The story is still developing at this time.
Stabbing – Central
El Paso Police responded to a stabbing in Central El Paso that left one victim wounded with non-life-threatening injuries just after 9:30 p.m. at Piedras and Yandell streets.
Motorcycle Accident - West
Around 9 p.m., a motorcyclist was seriously hurt in a collision Wednesday night near Mesa and Pitt streets. According to El Paso Police, the motorcyclist was taken to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Driver Crashes Into Home – Lower Valley
Just around 9 p.m., a driver crashed into a home in the 7400 block of Alpha Avenue in the Lower Valley. The driver was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims involved in these tragic incidents.
