“He wasn’t paying attention, long story short,” Llanas said.
Gabriel De La Rosa of Alamo was driving a Ford Escort below the speed limit in the northbound right lane when he was hit from behind on the driver’s side by Ramond Klespies of Floresville in a Chevy 2500 truck, according to Llanas. Llanas also said De La Rosa veered off the road, flipped and slid approximately 45 feet.
De La Rosa was picked up by Acadian EMS with non-fatal injuries. The Ford Escort was flipped back into an upright position by Troopers Carlos Martinez and Joshua Alcala and witnesses to the wreck, Tony Martinez and Tony Hernandez.
“I heard a noise, and by the time I looked it was flipping,” Tony Martinez said as he described his view from the incident near Go Green Services.
