BEEVILLE - An oilfield worker from Beeville died just after 6 a.m. in a three car crash on Highway 59 about 8 miles west of town. A spokesman for the Department of Public Safety says Javier Gomez may have been drowsy when he crossed the center line of the highway into oncoming traffic.
His Saturn hit a Chevy truck head-on and spun around into the path of another pickup. Gomez was pronounced dead at the scene. The other drivers were taken to different hospitals.
