Three accidents cause two deaths
Several accidents on area roads have resulted in two fatalities within the past week.
Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol Cpl. Javier Reyes confirmed July 1 that Donald McRae, 32, of Adkins, died June 27 when the GMC Sierra pick-up truck he was driving struck a Chevrolet Suburban driven by Luke Clark, 34, of Floresville.
A 911 caller advised that the “Sierra was all over the road,” Reyes said. While the caller was on the line, the vehicle crossed from the southbound lanes of U.S. 87 near the Wilson and Bexar county line and crashed almost head-on into the Suburban traveling north.
Clark was transported by AirLife to University Hospital in San Antonio. His condition was unknown as of press time July 1. McRae was pronounced dead at the scene.
Reyes said intoxication is suspected. The investigation is waiting on results from the medical examiner’s office.
A single-vehicle rollover June 28 on S.H. 123 near Stockdale also resulted in a death.
Nicole Quincy, 18, of McKinney, the front-seat passenger in a 2013 Chevrolet Suburban driven by 19-year-old Morghen Day of Rockwall, was killed when the vehicle struck a large tree. Day told DPS personnel she swerved to miss an animal in the road, went into a ditch, and hit the tree. She and the back-seat passenger, Kristen Stewart of McKinney, were transported with non-incapacitating injuries to Guadalupe Regional Medical Center in Seguin, Reyes said.
The investigation continues.
On Sunday, Gabriella Linehan, 27, of Portland, was traveling on S.H. 123 north of F.M. 1681. She told officers she looked at her cell phone, looked up and overcorrected, and rolled her 2011 Honda Civic. Reyes said she had no visible injuries and was transported to Guadalupe Regional Medical Center in Seguin.
