1 Killed 4 Injured in Fiery Crash

One man was killed and four others are left injured following a fiery car crash Saturday night near Noonday.

The accident happened just before Midnight at the intersection of FM 2868 and CR178, that's about 3 miles Southeast of Noonday. Department of Public Safety reports show 22-year-old Jose Doroteo of Jacksonville was driving a Ford Mustang South on 178 when he failed to stop at an intersection.  The Mustang was hit broadside by a passing car sending it tumbling and eventually causing it to burst into flames.

Doroteo was killed and one of his passengers was severely burned. Another passenger and the two people in the other car were all taken to local hospitals for their injuries.

The man who was burned, 44-year-old Elisio Gomez, was taken to the Parkland burn center in Dallas where he is listed in critical condition.
