A man died at a hospital five days after crashing into a tree outside an IHOP restaurant in Northeast El Paso, police officials said.

Traffic investigators were notified Wednesday that Carlos Aceves, 53, died from his injuries in a Nov. 22 crash outside the IHOP at 4500 Hondo Pass Drive, police said. An obituary stated that he died Saturday, Nov. 27.

Aceves was driving a white 2019 Dodge Ram west on Hondo Pass when he veered to the left, crossed the eastbound lanes, hit a curb and crashed into a tree, police said.

Police officials said it was unknown whether the Northeast resident might have had a medical emergency before the accident.

This was the 63rd traffic-related death in El Paso this year compared with 65 at the same time last year, according to police figures.
