Troopers probe F.M. 1344 crash
DEWEES -- Troopers from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Highway Patrol continue their investigation into a single-vehicle rollover wreck that occurred March 13 at approximately 2:15 a.m. at the intersection of F.M. 1344 and C.R. 134 north of here.
The investigating officer, DPS Trooper Cory Holmes, said it is yet unknown who was driving the 2001 Dodge Ram pickup truck involved in the crash. A male and female, both 18 and both from Poth, occupied the vehicle. As of press time, officials declined to release their names.
The two received injuries and were transported via ambulance to the Connally Memorial Medical Center in Floresville. The female later was transported from Connally via AirLife helicopter to University Hospital in San Antonio.
Holmes said the preliminary determination is that the pickup truck was traveling eastbound on C.R. 134 when the driver attempted to make a left turn onto F.M. 1344. The driver allegedly was traveling too fast to make the turn, causing the truck to roll at least once.
