ELMENDORF -- Deputies from the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the cause of a Feb. 27 wreck that killed a man and sent a woman to University Hospital in San Antonio.
According to Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Paul Berry, just before 2 a.m. an unidentified female driver lost control of a Ford F-150 pickup truck while driving south on U.S. 181 near Kilowatt Road. The vehicle then struck a utility pole.
Killed in the crash was 38-year-old Roy Robinson of Floresville. The woman was flown via AirLife helicopter to University Hospital.
Later that day in Wilson County, a Somerset man escaped with minor injuries from a crash on S.H. 97 east of F.M. 1922. The victim, 59-year-old Kirk P. Haskell, was driving a Chevrolet Suburban, which was the chase vehicle for a convoy of tractor-trailers being operated by Acme Truck Lines Inc. A coworker driving one of the trucks said the group was headed to Westhoff when it got separated from Haskell.
According to Cpl. Javier Reyes of the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol, Haskell reported veering onto the shoulder for reasons yet unknown. He tried to regain control of the vehicle, which then struck a tree before going into a sideways skid and rolling once in the eastbound lane.
Haskell, who was wearing his seat belt, was transported via Wilson County Emergency Medical Services to the Connally Memorial Medical Center, where hospital spokesman Mandy Sralla said he was treated and released a short time later.
