TX Wrecker Operator Killed In Crash

Our condolences to the family and acquaintances of 46-year-old Adam Diaz Lopez, who was killed April 20 while working on the side of the road.
Here's the sad, sad story from the Reporter News online:

A Ranger wrecker employee was killed Wednesday in an Eastland County accident.

Adam Diaz Lopez, Jr., 46 was picking up a rental truck that had previously crashed when the driver of a 2008 Ford F-250 traveled off the road to the left and struck the rental truck. The Ford then struck Lopez.

The crash occurred at about 12:20 a.m. on Interstate 20, about 10 miles east of Ranger.

According to Senior Trooper Sparky Dean, Lopez was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth and was pronounced dead at 5:01 a.m. His body was taken to Edward’s Funeral Home in Ranger.

Dean said the road was dry and the weather was clear at the time of the crash.

The crash is being investigated by Texas Highway Patrol Trooper Buddy Wise.
