Westbrook ISD: Several members of community involved in crash
WESTBROOK, Texas (KOSA) - UPDATE: The Texas Department of Public Safety has released more on the crash that left several members of the Westbrook community in stable condition.
Texas DPS says, a semi-truck, was traveling westbound on FM 33 near mile marker 313. At the same time, a second semi was traveling eastbound on FM 33.
Fernando Alvarez, who was the driver of the first semi, failed to drive in a single lane, causing him to side-swipe the second semi.
Alvarez then continued westbound in the eastbound lane hitting a third car.
This caused Alvarez’s semi to jack-knife in the middle of the roadway, where a fourth car hit the back of the truck.
Alvarez was thrown from his truck, and killed.
The driver of the second semi was treated by EMS at the scene of the crash and released.
The drivers and passengers of the other two cars were all taken to Scenic Mountain Medical Center, where they all remain in stable condition.
In total, eight members of the Westbrook community were taken to the hospital.
