The accident happened at around 11:30 a.m. Thursday at the intersection of U.S. Highway 84 and North Garfield Avenue.

Gomez was driving a Chrysler north on Garfield when he pulled onto U.S. 84 and into the path of an oncoming Mitsubishi sedan, which struck his car on the driver’s side, police said.

He died at the scene.

Linda Alford, 45, of Robinson, who was driving the Mitsubishi, was injured in the crash.

She was taken to a Waco hospital.

Police said her injuries did not appear to be life threatening.

The two victims were both alone in their cars, authorities said.
