Three Injured in Major Rollover, Entrapment Crash
Just before 3:30 p.m. today, San Angelo Police and Fire Department personnel were dispatched to the 5300 block of Foster Rd for a major two-vehicle crash with entrapment.
Once on scene, first responders located a collision between a white 2002 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 with entrapped occupants and a City Stormwater Truck that was on its roof.
The Camaro’s occupants were extricated from the vehicle and transported to a nearby hospital with incapacitating injuries. The Camaro’s driver, 18-year-old McKenna Bowie, remains hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit. The Camaro’s passenger, 16-year-old Austin Weeds, underwent emergency surgery and remains hospitalized. His current condition is unknown.
The driver of the City owned vehicle, 29-year-old Ezra Ramirez, was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
The Department’s Traffic Section responded to the scene along with Crime Scene Technicians. A preliminary crash investigation showed the Camaro was traveling northbound towards Loop 306 at a high rate of speed when it lost control and went into a broad slide before the collision. The City truck had been traveling south on Foster road when Ramirez reportedly noticed the Camaro coming towards him. Ramirez attempted to take evasive action but was unable to avoid the Camaro and collided head-on into the Camaro’s passenger side door. The force of the collision caused the truck to flip over and come to a rest on its roof.
The Department issued a Nixle alert warning drivers to avoid the area and traffic was blocked for several hours during the investigation.
