“SANÂ ANTONIO — A deadly highway crash left one person dead early Tuesday morning on the city’s northeast side.
The collision happened just before 5 a.m. Tuesday on Loop 410 near Austin Highway in front of the Cowboys Dance Hall.
SAPD officiers said a construction vehicle had been driving along the highway with half of the vehicle in the lane and half on the shoulder as a worker picked up construction barrels.
A driver in a black SUV was traveling in the fast lane and apparently could not slow down in time to avoid the construction truck. The SUV slammed into the truck and then swerved and came to a stop nearby.
The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the driver as 44-year-old Billy Joe Vaughn. He died at the scene.
Traffic in the area was slowed as the morning rush hour continued.”
