JASPER, Texas (KTRE) - A 23-year-old man died because of injuries he suffered in a one-vehicle crash that occurred on Jasper’s Edgewood Street Saturday night.

According to a press release, Emilio Garcia, of Jasper, was driving a 2005 Mazda sedan north on Edgewood when for an unknown reason, he lost control. The Mazda veered off the road and crashed into a parked car at the home of William and Laura Scott at 203 Edgewood.

A story on the kjas.com website said firefighters with the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department used a hydraulic rescue tool to free Garcia from the wreckage of his car.

“Garcia was not wearing a safety belt, and the force from the collision caused life-threatening injuries,” the press release stated. Garcia was pronounced dead after being transported to CHRISTUS Jasper Memorial Hospital.”
