Two men were taken Citizens Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries after a collision. The two trucks - a tractor-trailer hauling fish and a tractor-trailer hauling produce - northbound U.S. Highway 77 about 2:30 p.m.
Saturday when they collided near the crossover near Stubbs School Road, said Roger Hempel, battalion chief with the Victoria Fire Department.
Stephen Gray, a trooper with the Texas Department of Public Safety, said it appears the truck hauling fish was in the outside lane when the driver decided to make a U-turn and the other truck struck him.
Although a small fire erupted in the truck hauling fish, Hempel said by-standers extinguished the flames. No citations were immediately issued, but Gray said the crash remained under investigation.
