That corner has history, from what I heard many years ago. And this happen even before we were born. Alot of poeple lost their lives there.
Way back when poeple would pile up in the back of the trucks to go work in other towns. This people were from Carrizo Springs, and some poeple sitting on the edge had their leggs hanging on the edge of the truck all the way around and others sitting on the bed of the truck. And another truck coming from the oppisite direction too close to this truck cut off the leggs of this people. Some lost one some lost both but they all died. I have a feeling that, that is why this place of business does not progress because of all the unsettled spirits. MAYBE A PRIEST WILL NEED TO COME AND BLESS IT ONE OF THIS DAYS. Rosendo Hernandez is the owner.

I remember when Rudy Marinez Sr. owned the gas station. There were two gas stations in town then the other owned by "Chico" Escobedo. The story you mentioned above was told to me by my dad who lived Big Wells during the time it happened.
