AUSTIN – A Texas Highway Patrol trooper died this morning in El Paso after a two-vehicle crash.

Javier Arana Jr., 32, was responding to pursuit call when his patrol car was struck by a Ford Ranger at the intersection of Joe Battle Blvd. and Bob Hope Dr. in east El Paso at approximately 1:28 a.m. this morning.  His vehicle caught fire, and Arana died on the scene.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Trooper Arana's family and friends,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw.

Arana graduated from the DPS Academy in November 2010 and was stationed in El Paso.  He is survived by a wife and children.  He is the 87th DPS employee to die in the line of duty. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Two men in the other vehicle were transported to area hospitals. The driver of the Ford Ranger, 18-year-old Edgardo Antonio Flores, was transported to Del Sol Medical Center; the passenger, 20-year-old Josue Alejandro Guerrero, was transported to University Medical Center.  The DPS State Crash Reconstruction Team will conduct the investigation.
