A Floresville man is dead following a two-vehicle crash today at approximately 12:35 p.m. at the intersection of U.S. 181 and FM 775 north of Floresville.

Pronounced dead at the scene was Lazaro Borjon, 66.

According to Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol Trooper Al Alejos, Borjon apparently disregarded a red light while traveling eastbound on FM 775 and attempting to cross U.S. 181. This put him in the path of a White bobtail truck hauling a mobile home, traveling southbound on U.S. 181. The bobtail driver, 22-year-old Douglas Cupp, was unable to stop. The accident remains under investigation.

I am Lazaro Borjon's niece, I am sad that the paper has not updated the cause of the accident. My uncle had a medical problem and that is why he ran the red light. Not because he disregarded the red light. Thank you Mrs Montoya ... More ›
