The gravel trucks are not owned by the oil companies, but most of them are hauling materials to and from the well sites from which the oil companies derive direct benefits. The gravel trucks are contracted by the oil companies and/or construction companies that are working for the oil companies. In this instance, it appears that the truck is not at fault, which unfortunately, has not been the case so many times before. The wreck on 87 between Stockdale and La Vernia was a gravel truck that blew a tire and veered into oncoming traffic, with fatal consequences. Earlier this year, it was another gravel truck that blew a tire and nearly ran through the dentist's office on 123 between Stockdale and Seguin, in the middle of a business day no less. In October, yet another gravel truck blew a tire on 181 just outside of Poth and ended up in the bar ditch. And just a few weeks ago, a gravel truck rear-ended a young lady on 123 just North of Stockdale. Yes, the County is benefiting from the economic activity, but something has to be done before more families are left to pick up the pieces from accidents that in most instances, are avoidable. Condolences to the family of Mr. Casteel.
