A vehicle that was possibly stopped in the road or going slow in the right lane was hit from behind by a 2007 Chevrolet dump truck.
Myth: Just because there has been an accident and it wasn’t your fault, there must be some insurance company that will pay for your bills, lost wages and injuries.
The driver of the vehicle was killed instantly and a passenger in the vehicle was pronounced dead after being taken to Central Texas Medical Center in San Marcos.
The driver of the dump truck, 20-year-old Isaac Fettig, was taken to Seton Medical Center Hays in Kyle with minor injuries.
The southbound lanes of the highway were shut down for several hours while police investigated.
