Teen Killed in Highway 44 Crash

CORPUS CHRISTI - An 18-year old man was killed in a really bad accident this morning on Highway 44 just west of Banquete.

Robert West-Warburton apparently lost control of his truck and ended up rolling it over on the highway. Moments later, an 18-wheeler headed down the road swerved to avoid hitting debris from the accident, but slammed into Warburton's truck.

It took several hours to get Warburton out of the wreckage. He died at the scene.

The driver of the 18-wheeler suffered some minor injuries. His load of headstones was scattered all over the roadway.
