ATV crash kills Adkins teen
STOCKDALE -- Troopers from the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol are investigating a fatal July 4 crash that took the life of 15-year-old Cameron Wiatrek of Adkins. According to Cpl. Javier Reyes, troopers were called to the scene near the intersection of F.M. 537 and C.R. 409 southwest of Stockdale at 12:35 p.m.
According to the preliminary investigation, Wiatrek was riding a four-wheeled all-terrain vehicle with a 14-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl. Witnesses reported seeing the trio traveling at a high rate of speed when they crossed F.M. 537 onto C.R. 409 shortly before the crash occurred.
Reyes said the teens reported that the front wheels on the ATV had locked up, causing it to skid sideways before the four-wheeler overturned. The other teens were thrown clear, but Wiatrek was crushed. None of the teens was wearing a helmet, the trooper said.
Services for Wiatrek were held Tuesday, July 8. See obituary, page 11A.
