A West High School senior involved in a head-on crash continues to recover at DeTar Hospital Navarro.

Mario Garcia, 17, of Victoria, was listed Thursday in stable condition. He was moved from the intensive care unit, a hospital spokesman said.

Garcia was driving a red Camaro on U.S. Highway 87 North on Tuesday when his vehicle skidded into oncoming traffic, hitting a Chevrolet Tahoe, said Department of Public Safety Trooper Lt. Glen Garrett.

Garcia's passenger, Jacob Guzman, 18, of Victoria, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Tahoe, Carl Bradburn, 54, of Victoria, was taken to Citizens Medical Center, where he was treated and released Tuesday, a hospital spokesperson said.
