STOCKDALE -- Officials report that a tanker truck crash Feb. 20 at approximately 1 p.m. on northbound U.S. 87 approximately 4 miles northwest of here might have occurred after the driver dozed off.
According to Trooper Harold Estep of the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol, the truck’s driver -- identified as 23-year-old Mario Guerrero -- reported that he had fallen asleep, which caused the truck to drift into the left-hand guardrail. When he awoke, the truck was leaving the roadway, prompting him to turn the wheel sharply to the right, which caused the truck to skid out of control and land on its driver’s side.
Both lanes leading up to the northbound span of a bridge over the Cibolo Creek were blocked by the truck, which is owned by Houston-based T-Rex Services. Members of the Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department helped free Guerrero and his passenger, Albert Hart, from the vehicle. Hart was treated at the scene by the Stockdale Emergency Medical Services, who transported Guerrero to the Connally Memorial Medical Center in Floresville. Hospital spokesman Katie Etringer said the next day that Guerrero was treated and released.
Crews from the Texas Department of Transportation and deputies from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office directed traffic around the scene for at least two hours as two wreckers righted the truck before hauling it away. Traffic was backed up on U.S. 87 and S.H. 97 in the area, as all vehicles were directed across the southbound span of the bridge.
Stockdale Fire Chief Edwin Baker said there were no environmental concerns, as the truck was hauling potable water. Baker said the approximately 1,000 gallon tank already was empty when he arrived at the scene.
