Eagle Ford: Police charge Falls City woman in wreck
Officers from the Floresville Police Department conduct their investigation Feb. 1 at the scene of a three-vehicle crash on U.S. 181 near the intersection of C.R. 330 in Floresville.
FLORESVILLE -- Police here say that a medical issue might have been at the root of a crash on U.S. 181 near C.R. 330 at approximately 12:40 p.m. Feb. 1.
Tina Velma Greer, 55, of Falls City was issued a citation for failure to control speed after her Hyundai Accent struck the rear of a GMC Sierra pickup truck, which was stopped in the northbound turning lane of U.S. 181. According to Patrolman Eric Hutchinson of the Floresville Police Department, Greer then attempted to back away from the pickup truck, when her vehicle struck a Mitsubishi Lancer.
Hutchinson said minutes before the crash, police received calls about a vehicle being driven erratically on U.S. 181. The vehicle, which he said matched the Hyundai’s description, even was spotted driving north in the southbound lanes of the highway. The patrolman said that Greer told officers that she recently was hospitalized for some medical issues, and that she might have passed out behind the wheel moments before the crash.
The driver of the GMC Sierra, 38-year-old Matt McCloskey, was transported via ambulance to the Connally Memorial Medical Center in Floresville. Neither the driver of the Mitsubishi -- 47-year-old Jolene Craig Mueller -- nor her passengers, 69-year-old Nancy Fleming and 20-year-old Sarah Mueller, were hurt. Greer refused medical treatment.
In addition to her citation, Hutchinson said Greer would be referred to the state’s Medical Advisory Board, which could decide to revoke her driving privilege.
