This is What Happens When You Run a Stop Sign
SAN ANGELO, TX — Two vehicles collided late Saturday morning on the southeast side of San Angelo. One driver is in the hospital.
According to the Texas DPS, the driver of the red passenger car was headed west on U.S. 87’s access road towards San Angelo near the Loop 306 interchange. A black pickup truck was traveling south, connecting with Susan Peak Rd. south of the interchange.
