By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer

On Sunday, April 22, David Way, 52, was air-lifted to University Hospital in San Antonio following an accident on Highway 16 near the intersection of Highway 46 east of Pipe Creek.

Way, driving a Silverado pickup, was traveling south on 16 when he failed to negotiate a curve, and crossed the double yellow lines into the north-bound lane. He continued driving in the north-bound lane until hitting a metal gate, driving through a fence and coming to rest against a cedar tree in a private pasture.

The accident occurred at 5:49 am.
According to DPS reports, Way said he believed he must have fallen asleep while driving.

DPS is awaiting toxicology results before completing their investigation.
