After the collision, the Nissan Altima caught fire in the engine block area.  Civilian Contract Security Forces Officer Manuel Hernandez, who was nearby at the time of the collision, responded from Goodfellow Air Force Base and attempted to put out the fire with an extinguisher he retrieved from his vehicle.  Both drivers told police they had exited their vehicles prior to the fire breaking out.

 

The Nissan's driver, a twenty-five-year-old San Angelo woman, was transported to Shannon Medical Center and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.  Her current condition is unknown.  The pickup's driver was not injured.

 

San Angelo Police issued a Nixle alert for the area and blocked oncoming traffic during the investigation.  San Angelo Fire Department Personnel responded and addressed the car fire and fluid spills.
