A DeWitt County Department of Public Safety trooper driving a marked patrol vehicle was involved in a wreck Saturday night in Cuero that left two people injured, San Antonio Department of Public Safety officer Tommy Cavazos said.

Trooper Dustin Slovacek was driving westbound on Texas Highway 72 at 7:57 p.m. when his patrol vehicle collided with a 2002 Jeep Liberty at the intersection of Highway 72 and U.S. Highway 87. The driver of the vehicle, Aaron Rosales and Maria Fuentes, both 43, were heading southbound on U.S. Highway 87 when the patrol car hit the rear left driver's side door.

Rosales was taken to Citizens Medical Center in Victoria, and Fuentes was transported to University Hospital in San Antonio. Both are in stable condition.

Slovacek was not reported to have injuries.

No citations were issued in the accident, and fault could not be determined from the report, Cavazos said.
