He was the first to arrive at the scene of a vehicle crash that occurred during a dust storm that caused low visibility. He was assisting an elderly patient who was still in her car when another vehicle struck him and the car.

Flores-Bañuelos was transported to Pioneers Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

He is survived by his expectant wife and three children.
