EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) - El Paso Police are investigating a serious crash that sent two brothers to the hospital - one with life-threatening injuries - to the hospital late Wednesday night.

EPPD's Special Traffic Investigation Unit responded to the 1800 block of Zaragoza around 10:20 p.m. Wednesday night to a two-vehicle crash. Investigators learned that 16-year-old Matthew Delgado was driving south in the 1800 block Zaragoza in a 2009 Mustang when he turned left across the northbound lanes into a bank parking lot.

At the same time, a 2017 Mustang driven by Gerard Lusk, 20, was driving north. Lusk's Mustang hit the passenger side of Delgado's mustang where his brother, Emmanuel Delgado, also 16, was sitting.

As a result of the crash, Emmanuel Delgado was seriously injured and was taken to Del Sol Medical Center with serious, life-threatening injuries. Matthew Delgado sustained minor injuries and was also taken to the hospital.
