An Adkins man is dead, following a two-vehicle accident on U.S. 87 north of La Vernia around 10 p.m. June 27.
Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol Cpl. Javier Reyes confirmed July 1 that Donald McRae, 32, of Adkins, died last Thursday evening when the GMC Sierra pick-up truck he was driving struck a Chevrolet Suburban driven by Luke Clark, 34, of Floresville.
A 911 caller advised that the “Sierra was all over the road,” Reyes said. While the caller was on the line, the vehicle crossed from the southbound lanes of U.S. 87 near the Wilson and Bexar county line and crashed almost head-on into the Suburban traveling north.
Clark was transported by AirLife to University Hospital in San Antonio. His condition was unknown as of press time July 2. McRae was pronounced dead at the scene. See obituary, page 3A.
Reyes said intoxication is suspected. The investigation is waiting on results from the medical examiner’s office.
