Drivers blame each other in two-vehicle wreck

Victoria police do not know who is to blame for a Tuesday afternoon wreck at the intersection of Laurent and Juan Linn streets.
At 12:42 p.m., a white Buick Century traveled west on Juan Linn Street while a green Kia sports utility vehicle traveled south on Laurent Street. The two vehicles collided in the intersection.
Officer Herschel Buck said 57-year-old Fort Worth resident Cherie Graul, the driver of the Kia, and 75-year-old Victoria resident Fred Hernandez, the driver of the Buick, blamed each other for causing the wreck.
"We just don't know which one yet," Buck said.
Ginger Cooper, 53, Linda Hawkins, 58, and her 20-year-old son David, all Fort Worth residents, traveled with Graul to Corpus Christi.
Everyone involved in the wreck wore a seatbelt. All passengers and both drivers suffered minor injuries, but no one was taken to the hospital.
Buck said the wreck is still under investigation.
