Gabriella Guevara, 21, of San Antonio has been cited for disregarding a stop sign, causing an afternoon crash on F.M. 775 near La Vernia just before 2 p.m. today.
Bad brakes in her Ford Focus may have played a part in the incident, said Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol Cpl. Javier Reyes. As Guevara approached F.M. 775 from Palo Verde, she failed to stop, and Edna Vajdos, 68, of Floresville was unable to avoid the collision as she traveled southbound on F.M. 775 in her 2015 Lincoln Navigator with her five grandchildren.
There were no apparent injuries, Reyes said.
Also responding were members of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office and Eagle Creek Volunteer Emergency Services.
