A Stockdale man is dead and a La Vernia man is listed in critical condition at University Hospital in San Antonio, following two separate wrecks March 8 on U.S. 87.

Wilson County Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace Sara Canady pronounced 46-year-old Ernesto Marquez of Stockdale dead at the scene, following a crash at approximately 6 a.m. on U.S. 87 south of La Vernia. The roadway was closed for several hours as officials investigated while a crew from the Texas Department of Transportation cleared debris from the roadway.

Trooper Anthony Flores of the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol said Marquez was driving northbound on U.S. 87 in a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck when, for reasons yet undetermined, he veered into the southbound lane. The pickup truck struck a northbound tractor-trailer owned by the Hansen-HeidelbergCement Group, which was driven by 47-year-old Ronnie Montoya of San Antonio.

The impact ejected Marquez -- who Flores said was not wearing a seat belt -- from the vehicle and onto the roadway, where he died. Montoya was not injured.

At about the same moment, La Vernia resident Benjamin Dykeman, 20, was injured in a two-vehicle wreck at the intersection of U.S. 87 and Mount Olive Road in Lone Oak. According to Investigator Louis Antu of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, Dykeman and an unidentified passenger were attempting to turn onto U.S. 87 from Mount Olive Road when a Lexus passenger car hit the pair’s white Mazda broadside.

Dykeman, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle. He was flown via AirLife helicopter to University Hospital in San Antonio, where a spokesman said March 9 he was listed in critical condition. The driver of the Lexus, whom Antu did not identify, suffered “non-life-threatening injuries.”

"Marquez was driving northbound ....he veered into the southbound lane.....The pickup truck struck a northbound tractor-trailer " Was the tractor trailer northbound or southbound?
