One person is dead after a two-vehicle crash in Buda, Texas.
It happened Monday morning, November 11, 2013, on FM 1626 near Jerrys Lane.
Officials say a dump truck carrying sand was headed east on 1626 when
the male driver lost control, traveled into the westbound lane and fell
on top of a car carrying a woman and a male child.
According to the Department of Public Safety, the woman had apparently
seen the truck veering toward her and had pulled over in her lane as far
as she could go in an effort to avoid a crash. Her car was found against
the road's guardrail.
The child was in a car seat and was examined by paramedics and released.
He was picked up by a family member.
"All I can say was that it is a miracle," said DPS Trooper Jacob
Burlinson. "He was unharmed, and he is fine. He's with his family,
but he is okay. Again we don't know how he wasn't hurt, but he
is fine, and like I said, it's a miracle."
The relationship between the deceased woman and the boy is unknown.
