Ingleside Man Killed in Accident on Highway 361

An Ingleside man was killed in a traffic accident while traveling westbound on State Highway 361 near 35 at around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The man, identified as 50-year old John Murray Martin II, was driving an Isuzu Rodeo on Highway 361. A truck hauling a trailer tried crossing from one side of the road to the other, forcing Martin to take evasive action to avoid a collision.

However, the trailer was hauling sheet metal that was laying flat and protruding about eight feet beyond the confines of the trailer. Martin was able to avoid hitting the truck and trailer, but the sheet metal struck the driver's side of Martin's vehicle, cutting the left side of the Rodeo in half.

The driver of the truck could face possible charges, including failure to stop and render aid, negligent homicide and tampering with evidence.
