KARNES COUNTY – Karnes County deputies and DPS officers responded to several accidents related to light rainfall that fell on local highways late last week.

On Thursday, April 17 at 8:10 a.m. there was a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of State Highway 80 and Farm-to-Market Road 792. EMS transported one patient to Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital due to AirLife helicopter grounded due to weather conditions. Sheriff’s deputies and DPS worked together at the crash scene.

Later that same day at 2:12 p.m. DPS and sheriff’s office deputies responded to a one-vehicle crash north of Hobson. There were no injuries.
