    Culberson County Sheriff Oscar Carrillo, one of the first responders on the scene, believes a tractor trailer could have accidentally sideswiped Martinez and his partner while they were standing near a culvert just feet from Interstate 10. The highway is a heavily traveled route for interstate truckers and there have been a number of accidents, some of them caused by wind drafts, or drivers overcorrecting on the lonely road, Carrillo said.

    “From the beginning we were radioed to assist in the incident as an injury, not an assault," he said. "That’s the way it was communicated to us.

    “If this was an assault, believe me, as sheriff, I’d be the first one out there emphasizing safety in our community and with our deputies, pairing them up,” he added. “But from what I know and see, that was not the case here.”
