Default 3 dead, 2 injured after striking feral hogs

http://www.cbs7.com/content/news/3-d...466791873.html



UVALDE, Texas (AP) *Three people are dead and two others injured after a vehicle collided with a wild hog in Southwest Texas.

The accident happened late Monday on a rural road near Uvalde, about 110 miles southwest of San Antonio.

Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Sgt. Conrad Hein said Tuesday that a preliminary investigation indicates a Ford Expedition collided with the hog, causing the vehicle to swerve into oncoming traffic and hit a Mercedes SUV head-on.

The Expedition's driver, 51-year-old Ruby Garza, and the driver of the Mercedes, 27-year-old Antonio Cordova, were pronounced dead at the scene.

One of the passengers in the Ford, 51-year-old Julia Vasquez, later died at an area hospital.

Hein had no immediate information on the names and conditions of the Expedition's two other passengers.

Very tragic, prayers for all family's involved. Seen three hogs layed out in the road the other morning I left my place I thought that could be bad, they were all at least 100 pounders, it was very foggy that morning as well everyone be careful out there.

Dang terrible.

There needs to be a more vocal public push to just hit the animals square on and not swerve to miss.
I saw / read the results of a study a few years ago stating that it is the swerve that causes entirely more deaths and damage than just hitting the animal square on.

That is understandable but it is in our nature to avoid things that will harm us.

Default Hitting hogs

Had a buddy that spent 6 weeks in ICU after hitting a herd of pigs in West Texas, was lucky to survive and it was the hogs that did the damage to his car, not swerving to avoid them.

I don't want to take away from tragedy that the families involved have suffered but I will tell my story. Early this spring, my wife, BIL and I were coming back from a wedding in Brownwood. I had the cruise set on 75 as we were driving home that night . All of a sudden I saw a hog in the middle of our lane. I remember yelling hog then Bam we hit it. I honestly don't remember if I hit the brake to take the car out of cruise control or not, but I know we didn't have time to slow down any. I braced against the steering wheel as we hit the hog. Luckily, I had absolutely no time to even think about swerving. We hit it dead center of the car. I could feel it rolling over and over under the car as I tried to keep the car going straight down the road. When the hog finally rolled out from under the car I was able to guide the car to the side of the road and stop. I believe that the good Lord was with us. If I would have hit that hog anywhere but dead center, we would have flipped and probably killed one or all of us, especially at the speed we were going when we hit it. Left or right any at all and one of the wheels would have been lifted off the road and things would have been tragic. Plus, the fact that I had no time to swerve was just as important. I know not to avoid hitting an animal but instinct takes over and you don't know what could have happened. I was shook up for a long time that night and I still have a hard time driving at night on that particular road. By the way, the car was a Ford Escape. Over $5000 worth of damages. We were extremely lucky.

Those b a s t a r d s are causing a lot of damages, I work for a INS co. and the hits are being reported a lot more than deer or even livestock now a days...


Prayers for the families involved, and to you H.C. it definitely will take time to get over that for sure..

side note: we totaled a Tesla in s/a because of a ferel hog..

One of the deceased was a US Border Patrol Agent. Sad deal, looks like vehicles were on fire.
