Texas Pastor and Wife Killed in Automobile Accident, Three Children Survive

Odessa Crossroads Church Executive Pastor Kenny Comstock and his wife, Melissa, died in an automobile accident Thursday in New Mexico. The couple was reportedly on their way to Ruidoso with their three children also in the car.

Pastor Comstock died at the scene. Melissa Comstock died at the hospital. The children, ages 6, 4 and 1, survived. The oldest and youngest were not seriously injured, and the middle child underwent surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.

The accident occurred in the morning as the Comstock family traveled on U.S. 380 just west of Tatum. According to the New Mexico State Police, the driver of a Mercedes crossed the center line and collided with the Ford pickup driven by Pastor Comstock. The investigation is ongoing.

To inform friends and church members of the loss, a message from the church’s lead pastor, Jeremiah Ramer, was posted on the church’s Facebook page providing information on the parents’ deaths and a brief comment on the health of the children.

The message also said: “In moments like this we turn to the Word of God and 2 Cor. 1:3-4, ‘The Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles.’ Please pray for God’s comfort for Kenny’s and Melissa’s families as they mourn the loss of their son and daughter, brother and sister. Continue to pray for their children, who are beginning life without their mom and dad.”
