Just after 10:30 p.m. on June 9, the San Marcos police and fire departments and Hays County EMS responded to a crash on I-35 southbound near exit 207 for River Ridge Parkway.

According to San Marcos police, a witness reported a Dodge pickup truck had changed lanes to avoid another vehicle when it crashed into the back of the semi-trailer. Greer was identified as the driver of the truck.

San Marcos police say the crash happened near scheduled road construction which required traffic to slow as the center and right lanes merged left. The roadway was shut down for around two-and-a-half hours for driver safety and the investigation.


No charges are expected to be filed.
