Authorities responded to a call of a major crash at the 1900 block of North Damasco in North Edinburg around 8:30 p.m.

The release states the car driven by Flores was upside down when authorities arrived.

Officials said the 18-year-old was driving at a high speed when he “clipped” the back of the other car, causing him to flip over.
