Remembering young father killed in head-on collision; account set up to help family

There is an outpouring of care and concern for a young father killed in a collision.

Luis Eduardo Martinez, 22, died Monday when his Mustang crossed into oncoming traffic on Texas Avenue in Bridge City before crashing into a pickup truck. Martinez died at a hospital. The other driver wasn't seriously hurt.

The family of Martinez tells KFDM they think he may have fallen asleep while driving to work as a scaffold builder in Louisiana.

They say he was a hard worker and devoted father to his 7-year-old son, and was loved by everyone he came across.

The family has set up a Gofundme account to help with funeral expenses.
