Driver killed in one-car rollover




A Pleasanton man was pronounced dead at the scene Sunday morning, December 18.

The accident occurred around 3:10 a.m. on FM- 3350 near Pleasanton’s municipal airport. The deceased driver was identified as 35-year-old Ricardo Rodriguez Jr.

A Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol spokesman in San Antonio said Rodriguez worked for a freight hauler.

The accident report says Rodriguez was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Impala eastward toward Pleasanton when he veered off the pavement and hit a concrete culvert. Following the impact, the Impala rolled over, ejecting Rodriguez, who was not wearing a safety belt.

DPS Trooper Jeffery Denman investigated the accident and was assisted at the scene by DPS Sgt. John Henke.
