The Memorial Day Weekend Proves to Be a Fatal One

The long holiday weekend has turned into a deadly one here in the Hub City. Police responded to a fatal accident at I-27 and North Loop 289 around 2 a.m. Monday morning. A witness traveling on the interstate was passed by a mini-van driving at a high rate of speed. Minutes later, the witness came upon the crash scene where the same mini-van had run off the road and hit two trees. Police say the driver was killed on impact. The accident is under investigation.

Another fatal accident happened on Saturday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. at the intersection of Kent street and North Milwaukee. 21-year-old Kristi Hertel was headed north on Milwaukee when she stopped at a two-way stop sign and proceeded through the intersection. That's when her Oldsmobile was hit by a semi-driven by 56-year-old Rodney Goswick. DPS troopers say Goswick did not have a stop sign and did everything possible not to strike the car. Hertel died at University Medical Center shortly after the accident. One of her passengers, 20-year-old Matthew Ysasaga remains in serious condition.
