CORPUS CHRISTI, TX. – Officials in Corpus Christi have announced that ten first responders will be quarantined as a precaution after responding to a major two-vehicle crash on Gollihar Road on Tuesday morning. The crash occurred at around 7:00 a.m. this morning near the intersection of Gollihar and Ayers Street.

Corpus Christi police report that one of the drivers involved was speeding and weaving in and out of traffic when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into an oncoming car. Both drivers involved were rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The victims have not been identified, but we do know that one was a 24-year-old male, and the other was a female in her mid-20’s. One of the patients fit the criteria of COVID-19 and is being tested.

Out of an abundance of caution, all of the first responders who responded to the scene have been quarantined and will have their activity monitored until the patient’s test results return, according to KIII TV.
