A 20-year-old Texas man survived a collision with a utility pole on Saturday but, sadly, didn't survive much long after. An injured Fabian Garnica was electrocuted when he stepped out of his vehicle and directly onto a downed power line at the site of the single-vehicle crash along Highway 146 in Texas City, Texas, reports ABC News. "If you're in a vehicle, you need to stay inside the vehicle until we can arrive on scene" and "see if the power lines are still hot," Texas City EMS Director Wendell Wiley tells KTRK. Garnica's girlfriend, Destiny Wallace, survived the accident by remaining in the vehicle and, while receiving medical treatment at a hospital, learned some other news: She's pregnant with Garnica's child.
