Stockdale man dies in crash
WILLIAM J. GIBBS JR. —
Troopers Rudy Palacios (left) and Scott Jendrzey of the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol conduct their investigation Aug. 1 at the scene of a fatal motorcycle crash at the intersection of F.M. 1107 and C.R. 427 east of Stockdale.
A 20-year-old Stockdale man is dead after a midday motorcycle crash Aug. 1 at the intersection of F.M. 1107 and C.R. 427 east of here. Caleb Lee Sanchez was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Trooper Anthony Flores, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety.
According to the preliminary investigation, 71-year-old Eugene Danielek of Stockdale was turning left onto F.M. 1107 from C.R. 427 in a military-issue 1971 Jeep truck just after noon. Sanchez and 20-year-old Esteban Antonio Cantu of Poth were traveling eastbound on F.M. 1107, each riding a Yamaha motorcycle. Cantu laid his motorcycle down to avoid striking the truck. However, Sanchez’s motorcycle struck the vehicle’s right side, with the bike breaking into at least two pieces upon impact.
Both riders were wearing helmets, Flores said. The Stockdale Emergency Medical Services transported Cantu to the Connally Memorial Medical Center in Floresville, where a hospital spokesman said Aug. 4 that he had been treated and released.
Danielek was not injured.
Flores said the crash remained under investigation.
