DPS probes crash near Atascosa County line
Two drivers are recovering from injuries sustained in an Aug. 18 crash on S.H. 97 near its intersection with C.R. 136, just east of the Atascosa County line.
According to Cpl. Javier Reyes, Dorothea Kowper, 52, of South Africa was driving east on S.H. 97 in a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro at approximately 1:15 a.m. Because of being in an unfamiliar area at night, Kowper reported that she was driving partially on the roadway’s improved shoulder.
Gabriel Gomez, 42, of Floresville also was driving eastbound on S.H. 97 in a 2012 Nissan Altima. His vehicle struck Kowper in the rear.
Reyes said both Kowper and Gomez were transported to the Connally Memorial Medical Center in Floresville. A hospital spokesman said prior to press time Aug. 18 that Kowper was treated and released while Gomez was transferred to University Hospital in San Antonio. His condition was unknown as of press time.
