UPDATE: Officials release ID of man killed in crash on U.S. 181
Texas Department of Transportation workers found this wrecked vehicle — and its deceased driver — April 1, as they were investigating a power outage near U.S. 181 and Loop 1604 in southeastern Bexar County.
Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a fatal crash in southeast Bexar County. The body of an elderly man was found next to a wrecked Lexus just before 9 a.m. April 1 in a field off U.S. 181 at Loop 1604. Crews with the Texas Department of Transportation found the wreckage after investigating a downed utility pole and power outage nearby. Electricity in the area went out around 3:51 a.m., which is when investigators believe the man crashed his car.
Evidence indicates the man was speeding southbound on U.S. 181 when his car left the road, hit the utility pole, and rolled several times before stopping in the brush. It’s believed the driver may have suffered a medical episode. The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office April 2 identified the victim as 70-year-old Richard Dean Clark of Elmendorf.
