CRANE COUNTY, TX (KWES) - An Odessa man was killed this weekend after being involved in a 5-car crash in Crane County.

The accident happened when an 18-year old woman slowed down on I-20 to enter the median and turn around. The driver behind her, driving a Chevy Malibu, struck her truck, sending it across the median and into the eastbound traffic lane causing her to hit an SUV.

Meanwhile, the cars behind the Malibu ended up rear-ending each other, causing a pile-up.

The man driving the car that ended up in the middle has been identified as Joe H. Flores, 57, of Odessa. Unfortunately, he died on scene.
