There are reports that singer and radio host Javier Galvan has been seriously injured in a car accident in Texas last night.
A preliminary report from the Texas Department of Public Safety has stated that the Tejano singer was involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle.
The 51-year-old Galvan is an award-winning singer and songwriter who was the founding member of the band Fama. According to Tejano Nation, he retired from the group in 2009 after 25 years of performing on stage.
Galvan was reportedly attempting to pass several other vehicles when he collided with a Ford Edge coming in the opposite direction. One or both of the vehicles reportedly caught on fire on impact. However, the investigation is still continuing.
The driver of the Edge, 20-year-old Marisa Ramos, along with two of her passengers, Adalynn Muniz, aged 7, and Cissy Ramos, 46, were pronounced dead at the scene. And two children, who were also passengers in the car, have been taken to a hospital.
Galvan was transported to the Hendrick Medical Center in Abilene, TX., with injuries described as “serious and incapacitating.”
