Oct 25, 2016   02:57 PM

Around 12:16 a.m. today, San Angelo Police were dispatched to the area of Bell and Hughes Street for the report of a major motor vehicle crash with entrapment. 

Officers arrived and located a collision between a Kenworth Tractor Trailer and a 2014 Ford Fiesta.  The Fiesta’s 29-year-old female passenger had to be extricated from the vehicle by San Angelo Fire Department personnel.  The passenger was transported to Shannon Medical Center by ambulance with incapacitating injuries and later underwent surgery.  She is reported to be in stable condition in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.  The Fiesta’s driver, a 30-year old San Angelo man, received non-incapacitating injuries and refused medical assistance.   The driver of the tractor trailer, a 39-year-old male from Graham, Texas, was not injured.

San Angelo Police Department Traffic Investigator Steven Quade responded to the scene.  Subsequent to his investigation, it was determined that the tractor trailer was traveling eastbound on Hughes Street when the driver failed to yield the right of way at the stop sign and collided with the Fiesta that was traveling southbound on Bell Street.  The trailer was loaded with sand and the force of the collision caused the Fiesta to become partially lodged underneath the trailer. 

The driver of the tractor trailer will be issued a citation for Fail to Yield the Right of Way at a Stop Sign.  The truck is registered to 3 Point Trucking, LLC. out of Graham, Texas.
