Crossroads executive pastor and wife die in car wreck
ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - Odessa Crossroads Church Executive Pastor Kenny Comstock and his wife Melissa died in a car wreck last night, according to the church’s Facebook page.
It happened on U.S. 380 west of Tatum, New Mexico, as the couple reportedly was on the way to Ruidoso.
The Comstock’s three children, who are 6, 4 and 1-year-old, survived.
The oldest and youngest only had scrapes and bruises.
The 4-year-old, however, sustained head injuries and had to be operated on. He’s expected to make a full recovery.
New Mexico State Police say a 2011 Mercedes, driven by a 47-year-old Albuquerque man, was traveling eastbound on U.S. 380 when he crossed the center line and drove head-on into the Comstock’s 2016 Ford pick-up truck.
Kenny Comstock was pronounced dead on the scene. Melissa Comstock was pronounced dead at an area hospital.
The driver of the Mercedes was hurt and was transported to an area hospital. His current condition is not known.
State police investigators say alcohol does not appear to have been a factor and the Comstock family had their seatbelts on.
The driver has not been charged with anything as of Friday afternoon.
