A Texas man who survived a mass shooting during a video game tournament last month in Florida has died in a car crash.
The Texas Department of Public Safety says 25-year-old Ryen Aleman of Robstown was killed Sunday in a single-vehicle wreck near Corpus Christi.
Aleman was among the participants at a Madden NFL 19 tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, last month when a fellow gamer opened fire, killing two people. At the time, Aleman told the Corpus Christi Caller Times newspaper that he crawled into a bathroom to escape the gunfire.
Sgt. Nathan Brandley is a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety. He told the newspaper Aleman lost control of his vehicle Sunday. The vehicle overturned and crashed into nearby railroad tracks.
