Fatal crash occurred on FM 1593

A fatal crash was reported Monday morning on Farm-to-Market Road 1593 in Jackson County.

A 30-year-old Alamo man died Monday morning in a wreck in Jackson County, a Department of Public Safety official said.

Anthony Arturo Gonzalez was killed after striking two tractor-trailers on Farm-to-Market Road 1593, said Sgt. Ruben San Miguel, a DPS spokesman.

About 5 miles south of Lolita just before 7 a.m., Gonzalez was southbound in a 2014 Chevrolet truck when he crashed into the rear two axles of a tractor-trailer.

The reasons for the initial crash remained under investigation by DPS.

The initial impact caused the pickup to spin into oncoming traffic, where it crashed head-on into another oncoming tractor- trailer.

The driver of the second tractor-trailer was not injured despite his vehicle overturning and catching fire. Gonzalez was pronounced dead at the scene. No other injuries or fatalities were reported.

During the crash, a tire came off the pickup, striking and damaging the front of another truck.
