Victoria man dies in Karnes County crash

A Victoria man died Tuesday night in a Karnes County crash.

John Louis Schaar II was a passenger in a 2011 Ford F-250 driven by Bacilio Balderas, of Victoria.

The two were southbound on state Highway 239 near Kenedy when Balderas veered into the northbound lane, said Doug Dunivan, communications operator with the Department of Public Safety's San Antonio office.

The truck collided with a 2007 International truck driven by Francisco Garza, of Yoakum.

Schaar, 35, was taken to San Antonio Medical Center, where he died at 8:44 p.m.

DPS Trooper Roman Macias investigated the wreck.
