Weekend traffic accidents take lives

By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer

On Saturday, Sept. 20, a San Antonio man lost his life in a three-vehicle accident on Highway 16 in Pipe Creek. Robert Aguilar, 46, of San Antonio died at the scene.
According to DPS preliminary reports, Aguilar, riding a 2005 Harley Davidson motorcycle, and a second man, Jason Campbell, 40, also of San Antonio, were traveling north on 16 behind a pickup truck.
The truck, driven by Gregory Rodriguez, 77, of Pipe Creek, was also traveling north in a 55 mph zone. When the truck slowed to turn left onto West Pipe Creek Road, Campbell swerved to avoid hitting the back of the truck.
Aguilar apparently was unable to control his speed, struck Campbell's bike in the rear fender and then struck the rear of Rodriguez's truck.
The accident occurred at 9:30 am.
At press time, the Courier had not received any information about a vehicle roll-over on Friday, Sept. 19, that also resulted in a fatality.
