Driver inattention is the official cause of a weekend accident in Grimes County that killed two people.
It happened Saturday afternoon on Highway 90 near Bedias.

Troopers say the driver of a car, Jonathan Bohorquez, drifted off the road, over corrected and hit an oncoming car.

Bohorquez was taken to a Houston hospital by helicopter where he is listed in critical condition.

His passenger, Eulalio Garza III, 44, was killed in the crash. Garza was a Prairie View A&M professor and had just attended graduation ceremonies. He was an assistant professor of educational leadership and director of the Prairie View A&M University Dallas education center.

Visitation is scheduled for Wednesday from 2:00 - 9:00 p.m. and a Rosary Service is planned at 6:30 p.m. Both services will be held at the Memorial Funeral Home in Corpus Christi.

The funeral is scheduled for Thursday at 1 p.m., at Saints Cyril and Methodious Church in Corpus Christi.
