Description: At about 9:30 a.m. on May 14, 2006, plaintiff David Aguilar was driving a four-door subcompact sedan going northbound on U.S. Highway 77, near a truckstop in Riviera in Kleberg County. Aguilar's mother, Maria Carreon, was seated next to him, and his son Andrew was in the back seat. Aguilar was three-tenths of a mile north of Texas Highway 285, when Pilar Navarro, driving an 18-wheeler southbound on U.S. 77, attempted to turn left into the truckstop. The 18-wheeler turned directly into the Aguilar's path, causing a massive front end collision between the two vehicles.
