Arguijo, David R.
David R. Arguijo - Huerfano World - August 4, 2005 - Killed - A Dimmit, TX., man, 34-year-old David R. Arguijo, was killed after dying of an apparent heart attack at the wheel of his semi-truck early last Thursday morning, July 28, 2005, when it crashed through an Interstate 25 guardrail, fell on and landed on top of two moving coal cars on an eastbound, 132 car Burlington-Northern Santa Fe train. Arguijo reportedly died from a heart attack, from the fire inferno that took nearly two-hours to extinguish or from the impact of the semi and the train cars. The Colorado State Patrol closed northbound 1-25, for eight hours and southbound 1-25 and Colorado 10 east and west. David Arguijo, a 34 year-old Texas man, was killed Thursday morning, July 28, 2005 when his 18 wheeler drifted out of the northbound lanes of 1-25 at Exit 52 overpass, sheared away the guardrail, and plunged down thirty one feet to smash into a east-bound Burlington Northern coal train. Two cars from the coal train, which was empty at the time, were caved in and derailed by the impact. The resulting fireball from the impact scorched the underside of the 1-25 overpass, and briefly set fire to the bridge and surrounding grass where diesel fuel had spilled. Arguijo had left Dimmitt Texas at 1 a.m. with a load of groceries to deliver in Divide. Insurance claims adjuster said on Tuesday Arguijo died of a heart attack. Huerfano County fire crews were paged out at 5:52 a.m. to deal with the fire, with a second page going out shortly thereafter for more assistance. As if flaming trucks and smashed trains weren't enough for one morning, the Fire Department received another page out in the middle of this for a structure fire at 808 Albert St. in Walsenburg. Firefighters rolling up on scene saw smoke coming out of a shed. Flames were quickly knocked down and the source of the fire was determined to be a sheet of plywood that had been placed on a stovetop, which had been left on. Although the heat was intense, damage was minimal. Back at the crash site, Walsenburg city crews used backhoes and bulldozers to clear the wreckage and locate Arguijo's body, which was taken to the El Paso County coroners for examination. Burlington Northern uncoupled the damaged rail cars and left them parked in the train yard side tracks.
