Mr Gutierrez was a friend of my nephew. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years ago. My prayers go out to him and his family. Thank You for serving our country. God Bless You
God Bless our lost Vetern, and thank you for serving us in more than one way.
In many states, it is a law to move over and slow down for an emergency vehicle and it is posted as such. As a trucker for 19 years, it is a courtesy to law enforcement and emergency vehicles to do so, and also you will notice that we move over if you are on the shoulder changing a tire etc. WELL, let me clarify that.... Old School Truckers do! The younger ones that don't think of anyone but themselfs could care less! As a former UPS driver, they have the mentality that they are superior and can do as they please! The ONLY excuse that this driver has causing him to not change lanes is that there was a 4 wheeler riding next to him and he couldn't move over, BUT, he should have slowed down. OH WAIT, that would put him behind schedule and he couldn't stop for his breakfast taco later on.......The Moral of this story is that WE as drivers need to be MORE aware of what is going on around us while we are driving. STOP texting, stop talking on the phone with out a head set, STOP turning to see what your toddler is screaming about.....You are driving a vehicle that can kill you, yours and others. When passing a big truck, GET IT DONE! Don't hang out beside one and don't tail gate one either.

Of the least importance, if the owner of the disabled vehicle lived in Victoria, what difference would it make if a wrecker from Woodsboro drove to Victoria and then had to return to Woodsboro verses a wrecker from Victoria driving to the disabled vehicle and then returning to Victoria? dah?? It is interesting that Texas is in the process of passing a law about passing a wrecker much like passing a police car when they have someone stopped. Enough about the wrecker! The problem is that someone did not pay attention or take the necessary precautions to prevent killing an emergency worker. It is amazing how fast these workers can clear a roadway of disabled vehicles. It is a shame that a war veteran that fought for his country more than once was killed by a careless citizen of his own country (unless the driver was an illegal alian). Rest in peace my friend...
Sorry for the loss of such a young man. I'd like to know the rest of the story. And charges against who for what?
Topsarge, How do you know what kind of license Coby's Wrecker Company has? Everybody knows that Coby's serves this part of the state. They work closely with law enforcement officials every day. This is a tragic accident that should have never happened but, unfortunately it did. It is a real shame that this young man fought for his country and survived and came home to be killed by a careless driver on the side of the road helping out a stranded customer.
Okay as a mother my self why in the world would you come on here and start running at the mouth a laws . Who really cares what you think. A young man lost his life doing his job, not only was he a tow truck driver. But he was also a war hero. SO if you have something to say about that then say and if you dont well than SHUT up and have some respect...
topsarge dont you get the hit quit already. my goodness this man lost his life. left a mother, father, possibly sister brothers give some respect and if you want to argue about the laws i am sure there are many other websites you can go to to argue. leave it alone already. god bless this family.
All that matters here, is that our friend/brother is gone. Christian was a Marine, a son, a brother, a best friend, a father, a helper and he had the biggest heart imaginable. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.
He was a person that could touch your life after you met him five minutes earlier.
Chris, we love you and miss you, hopefully one day we'll meet again.
Instead of posting all these negative comments about how it happened or what SHOULD have been done, lets think about the family and keep them in our prayers at their time of need. For those of you who are commenting about the laws of towing you need to go to the TDLR website before you post incorrect information. Like I said this is about the tragic loss of a life of Christian who served OUR COUNTRY and community thru the career he chose. God Bless his family and friends!
Christian will be greatly missed..He assisted our family before and was more then a kind young man..He will be missed by many..May God look over his family friends and loved ones at this time..
Actually, Woodsboro IS NOT over 60 miles from Victoria! Woodsboro is halfway between Vic & CC!!!!! THAT is beside the point anyway...why even worry about something like that.....what about what happened to this Marine?!? I for one think UPS drives WAY too fast anyway! In their tracto-trailers AND delivery trucks!!! We are constantly having to tell the UPS driver that comes into the RV Park to SLOW DOWN!!!
Christian. Thank you for your military service.You served multiple deployments.Your Marine semper fidelis to your family, community and countryis held in the highest esteem.Rest in Peace brother.
i just saw this little boys picture the other day picking up that car that hit the tree in front of Carinos. I will pray for the family and i am so sorry that this tragic accident happened. but trust me he is in a better place. God Bless you
Let this be a reminder that life is too short and we are on borrowed time. I pray that the family will stay strong and keep thier faith during this long road ahead of them. This young man just recently towed one of our vehicles, he was kind, polite and took pride in his work. Like they say God only takes the best! May he rest in peace and to the family I send my prayers and condolenses.
I have been towing vehicles for some years now. I work for Apollo Towing located in Corpus Christi. My prayers go out to this young mans family, work and personal. This is just a tragedy felt near and far all those in our industry.
SEMPER FIDELIS MARINE!!!! you will not be forgotten , I had my wife read this article tonight because i wanted her to know who you are and that you are obviously a Marines Marine! i can tell that your family and ms.cahue and andrea are going to miss you for a long time. God bless them all and give them the strength and understanding to move forward......
I relize everyone is intitled to their own opinions ... wheather you agree of disagree about Cobys Wrecker being 60 miles outside of Victoria helping a stranded customer shouldn't be the issue (unless that person was you and there was no other wrecker service to assist you ) lets remember that Christian has family,friends and co-workers who are deeply saddend at this tragic accident that took his life and that in all fairness should be the topic
Something needs to be done about 18 wheelers. They drive way to fast and rule the road with little regard for motorists.
Very sad. All you guys making a living working along the road, be careful. I too work out there sometimes and see first hand how dangerous some drivers can be. I am surprised that it involved a tractor trailer. Truck drivers seem the best a giving you room.
Thank you Sandra and Michelle for the prayers it means more than you could ever know ... he truly was a great guy and will be missed
Donna, Coby's Wrecker Service
God bless Mr. Gutierrez' soul, and his family in this painful time.
And GOP_LoveChild, whoever you are, you are such a LOSER. Get a life. Any person can call any wrecker they want, from anywhere.
This a has been a very sad day...Christian was so very nice and polite to work with in this business. Sending prayers to Christian's family and Coby's Wrecker Service....
Sandra, Allan's Wrecker Service, Inc.
SO VERY SAD!!! Sending prayers to the Gutierrez family, also to Coby's Wrecker Service. This is such a tragic accident. Christian was such a nice guy! Michelle, Allan's Wrecker Service, Inc.
How sad... Sending prayers to the Family. After just seeing this young man's photo about the car accident yesterday it is really hard to believe.
