One man was sent by HALO-Flight to Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital last week after suffering severe injuries in a two-truck accident on Farm-to-Market 665 at the Nueces/Jim Wells County border near Agua Dulce.
At 1:28 p.m. May 22, Raymond Perez, 36, of Alice, was headed westbound on FM 665 in his FESCO work truck when he noticed a GMC Sierra veering across the road headed east.
As the pair approached the intersection on County Road 105, police said the Sierra veered into Perez's lane. Perez tried to veer away from the vehicle, and was clipped on the driver's side by the Sierra.
The driver of the Sierra, a 45-year-old male from Bishop, was severely injured on his left arm and leg, according to firefighters and law enforcement officials at the scene of the accident.
Guardian EMS spent several minutes stabilizing the driver, who was unconscious, before HALO-Flight arrived.
Department of Public Safety Trooper Alex Benavides did not release the name of the driver following the accident and the driver's name was unavailable Tuesday.
Benavides said he was unaware if the Bishop driver was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident.
