A 20-year-old man was transported to a hospital by Halo Flight after a 19-year-old man crashed his car into another vehicle on Highway 44 in Robstown on Friday night.
Texas Department of Public Safety officials said at approximately 8:30 p.m., a 19-year-old man driving a white Ford Fusion was leaving Robstown on Highway 44 and was turning south into County Road 77.
A yellow Chevrolet Camaro traveling east on Highway 44 hit the Ford Fusion as it crossed the highway into CR 77.
The Camaro then ran over a stop sign while the Fusion traveled approximately 150 feet into the field by the highway, officials stated.
The 20-year-old passenger of the Ford Fusion was transported to Spohn Memorial Hospital by Halo Flight. Nueces County Sheriff officials said the condition of the passenger is unknown at this time.
The driver of the Fusion appeared unharmed as he walked around and said he was okay, DPS Trooper Levi Casados said. He was transported to a hospital for precautions.
19-year-old Ismael Almaguer, driver of the Camaro, said he was on his way to his job in Calallen when the crash occurred.
"I saw the car crossing and I knew it wasn't going to make it," Almaguer said. "I tried braking but it didn't help."
Trooper Casados said there were no signs of high-speed from the man driving the Camaro. He said the driver of the Fusion either didn't see the Camaro coming or judged the distance incorrectly.
The driver will receive a citation for failure to yield the right-of-way, Casados stated.
