Band director one of two hurt in Adkins crash


ADKINS The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office is probing an Oct. 28 crash at the intersection of Loop 1604 and F.M. 1346 here that sent two women with La Vernia ties to San Antonio hospitals.

According to a preliminary report, La Vernia High School band director Stacy Lynn Clark, 34, of San Antonio was driving north on Loop 1604 in a 2010 Toyota Camry at approximately 2:57 a.m. As her vehicle approached F.M. 1346, it was struck almost head-on by a 2008 Toyota Tundra pickup truck driven by 32-year-old Michelle Lynne Stout of La Vernia, who was turning left onto Loop 1604.

Firefighters from Gardendale and St. Hedwig extricated Clark from her wrecked vehicle before she was flown via AirLife helicopter to University Hospital in San Antonio, according to the report. A hospital spokesman said at press time that Clark was in surgery.

La Vernia Independent School District Superintendent Tom Harvey said that he and La Vernia High School Principal Cheryl Barron visited Clark prior to her surgery on Monday and said that the band director suffered multiple injuries in the crash.

“Today she appeared to be more alert and her personality was evident,” Harvey said. “She still cannot have visitors. However, she asked me to thank those in our community for their support and to tell her students that she will be back as soon as possible.”

Stout was transported via ambulance to Northeast Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, where a hospital spokesman said she had been treated and released. Stout’s passenger, 31-year-old Anthony Alan Smith, was not transported from the scene.

While rumors circulate within the La Vernia community that Stout allegedly was driving while intoxicated at the time of the crash, Investigator Louis Antu of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said at press time that that could not be confirmed.
