FLORESVILLE -- Maria Arismendez, 27, of Floresville and 19-year-old Kassandra Palacios of Poth are listed in stable condition at University Hospital in San Antonio, according to hospital records. This was after the two were involved in a 6:40 a.m. crash Oct. 23 on F.M. 1303 north of here.
Trooper Cory Holmes of the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol said Arismendez was driving a Volvo sedan southbound on F.M. 1303 between Labatt Road and C.R. 119 when the vehicle struck a horse. The Volvo then careened off the roadway and came to rest in a nearby ditch.
Both women were flown via AirLife helicopter to University Hospital, Holmes said. The horse did not survive its injuries.
Holmes said the incident remains under investigation.
