DPS probes wrong-way crash
FLORESVILLE -- Char-ges are pending following a near-head-on collision March 19 north of here, in which a driver was traveling northbound in the southbound lanes of U.S. 181.
According to Trooper Cory Holmes of the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol, 47-year-old Adam Estrada of Floresville was driving his 2006 Ford pickup truck northbound on U.S. 181 near Eagle Creek Ranch Boulevard at approximately 12:20 a.m. His vehicle struck the driver-side headlight of a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck being driven southbound on U.S. 181 by John Thomas Hughes, 46, of Falls City. Debris from the impact struck a third vehicle, Holmes said.
Hughes was transported from the scene via ambulance by the Eagle Creek Volunteer Emergency Services to the Connally Memorial Medical Center in Floresville. Hospital spokesman Mandy Sralla said he was treated and released later that morning.
Estrada was flown via AirLife helicopter to the University Hospital in San Antonio, where spokesman Sylvia Garcia said March 24 he was listed in stable condition.
