Da: Funeral Processions Should Be Banned

McALLEN — Hidalgo County should ban funeral processions, county District Attorney Rene Guerra said Thursday. A fatal crash during a funeral procession Wednesday has led to questions about the safety of the motorcades, where law enforcement officers guide traffic by blocking intersections. A Hidalgo County Precinct 2 constable’s deputy hit and killed an Alamo woman Wednesday when the deputy’s cruiser “t-boned” the vehicle she was traveling in.
