The offices of Wilson County Justice of the Peace Pct. 2 and the Bexar County Medical Examiner have confirmed the identity of a driver who died in a July 14 crash on U.S. 181 near the Wilson-Karnes county line. The driver was 27-year-old Chase Jon Sedmak of Floresville.

The crash between Sedmak’s Cadillac CTS and a tractor-trailer occurred at approximately 11:30 p.m. and led to the closure of U.S. 181 near C.R. 202 E for more than four hours. The tractor-trailer’s driver was transported via ambulance to the Connally Memorial Medical Center, where a hospital spokesman said he was treated and released.

The Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol continues its investigation into the crash and an autopsy is pending.
