Armando Aleman, 59, was hit and killed on Friday while riding his motorcycle on North Austin Street in Seguin.

Ira Miears, 93, was driving an SUV north on North Austin Street when he swerved out of the way of two cars turning left.  In an attempt to avoid hitting the two cars, Miears crossed into oncoming traffic and hit Aleman head-on.  Aleman was flown from New Braunfels Municipal Airport to San Antonio Military Medical Center, and died in flight.

Miears was cited for failing to stop, but according to Seth Burgoon of the Seguin Police, “We’re guess-timating that he was not speeding.”

Our thoughts and condolences are with the victim’s family.

San Antonio Police Officer Injured by Drunk Driver

Posted on January 28th, 2011 No Comments

A San Antonio Police Officer was seriously injured by an alleged drunk driver Sunday.

According to officials with the San Antonio Police Department, officer Michael Thornton was struck by a vehicle driven by 24 year-old Kevin Balditt Sunday night on Interstate 35. Thornton had stopped on the Interstate to assist a stranded motorist when Balditt strayed onto the shoulder and struck the officer.

The two motorists Thornton had been helping pulled the officer to safety and called an ambulance. He was transported to Brooke Army Medical Center for treatment. Thornton lost his right foot in the accident. Doctors remain optimistic that his lower leg can be saved so he can be fitted with a prosthetic foot.

Balditt was charged with intoxication assault. He was convicted of DWI in 2005. In 2007, Balditt was arrested again for DWI, but, according to state records, the charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence.
