We came upon a bad car accident on US-90 about 5 miles west of Waelder on Sunday, August 24 around 4:30 PM. We called 911 and we left after they got there. The driver seem more or less OK, but the passenger (I think it was a woman, but she (he) was wedged in the wreckage and I really couldn't tell for sure) was in very bad shape, maybe even dead, although I thought I detected a faint pulse and shallow breathing. Does anyone have any info on the outcome?

Tom,
My name is Vickie, and I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the interest in the outcome of the accident on US 90 W., on Sun. Aug. 24TH., and for taking the time to stop and call for help, although that is the law, now a days people don't always do it, if they do stop its to help its to do other things.
That was my brother and his wife (from Waelder), my husband and I also from Waelder, were notified and were asked if we could come out to identify her since she did't have an ID on her her.
He is at Brackenridge Hospital in Austin, and of course she didn't make it.
Do u have any idea what may of caused the accident? When we were there the JP told us that they weren't sure what happened, we "heard" that there had been a big rock on the road and he swirved to keep from running over it and lost control.
I have requsted a police report, but haven't received it yet.
Also was he talking?, did he tell you anything?, could he of possibly been able to give the trooper the report on the accident??? I am just curious as to what he may of said, do you know if he was aware of his wife possibly being dead? We are assuming that he doesn't know,therfore we are getting prepared to tell him when the time comes.
Any info that u might can share with me would be appreciated, like I said it's just for my peace of mind.
I praise and thank the Lord for sparing his life, but of course my heart is broken due to his wife's death, and him not knowing.
Thanks again, please reply with some answers for me if possible. Please share somthing from the accident with me.
God is good, to him be ALL the honor and glory.
May the good Lord bless you and your family and may his angels encamp around you'lls vehicles always.
Thanks again,
With Love and Blessings,
Vickie

Vickie, we are so sorry for your loss. We prayed for them all the way home to San Antonio and we were hoping that your sister-in-law would survive, although we knew she was very badly injured. I whispered in her ear that help was on the way and to hang in there - she probably didn't hear me, but if she did at least she knew someone who cared was there trying to help. Your brother was basically in shock, I think. In fact, he told me she wasn't his wife, but a friend, and he knew she was hurt - he asked me if she was dead and I told him him I didn't think so (because I thought I had felt a pulse and saw some shallow breathing). Other than that, he didn't say much - I just told him to relax and that help was on the way. As far as how it happened, I don't know. I didn't see anything in the road nor any skid marks - I thought maybe he might have fallen asleep. It must have happened just before we got there, I'd say probably 5 minutes or less because only one other car had stopped at the same time we did. I wish I had more information on that for you and we only wish he had gone off the road either just before or after that tree and the outcome would have been totally different.
Our condolences to you and your family.

My family & I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being there for our loved ones during the time that they needed someone to BE THERE, and to get the help needed.
Your info has brought me a lot of comfort and peace. I appreciate it very much.
I want you to know that you & your family will be in my daily prayers.
He is still in ICU, critical, but stable.
Thanks,
Love & Blessings in the name of JESUS!!!!

How amazing are the deeds of our Lord! All who delight in HIM should ponder them.
