HOBSON (revised) -- An Alabama man is dead and his common-law wife is being treated in the Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital in Kenedy, following a Feb. 17 crash at the junction of U.S. 181 and F.M. 81 here. The incident was reported at 10:02 a.m.
The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Highway Patrol reopened the roadway just before 2:30 p.m., said Trooper Anthony Flores, a DPS spokesman.
The troopers’ preliminary investigation reveals that a Kenworth truck tractor, which was towing a flatbed trailer hauling pipes used in hydraulic fracturing, was being driven southbound on U.S. 181. The couple were traveling northbound on U.S. 181 in a Dodge Grand Caravan, which crossed into the southbound lane and collided with the trailer.
