A Ganado teenager was flown to a Houston hospital Sunday evening after a two-vehicle crash south of Ganado, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
A 2007 Dodge pickup driven by Thomas Jackson Williams, 47, of Port O’Connor, was traveling south on County Road 172 about 6 p.m. Sunday when a 1997 Nissan pickup, driven by Joshua Wade Fowler, 16, of Ganado, failed to yield the right of way at County Road 238 and County Road 172, said Sgt. Ruben San Miguel, a DPS spokesman.
The 2007 Dodge pickup struck the driver side of the other vehicle. Fowler was flown by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Medical Center in Houston, where he is in stable condition, San Miguel said.
Fowler also had a passenger, Lane Eric Benavides, 15, of Ganado. He was taken to Citizens Medical Center on Sunday with injuries that were not life-threatening. Williams was not injured in the wreck, San Miguel said.
No citations have been issued, and the wreck is under investigation.
