John Carlson Killed, Joseph Tacia, Sherry Matthews Injured in New Braunfels, TX, Accident

New Braunfels, TX -- January 30, 2017, John Carlson was killed, Joseph Tacia and Sherry Matthews injured, following a head-on car accident.

Officials from the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the accident scene around 10:45 a.m. near the intersection of FM 725 and Rolling Forks Drive.

Their preliminary investigations report that a pickup driven by Thomas Uselton was traveling recklessly down FM 725. Witnesses say the pickup was speeding and weaving in and out of traffic down the roadway.

Reportedly, the pickup lost control on southbound FM 725 and ran off the side of the road. The vehicle then over-corrected and swerved into oncoming traffic. This put the vehicle into the path of Carlson's oncoming vehicle. The two cars crashed head-on.

As a result of the collision, Carlson was pronounced dead at the scene. Joseph Tacia, Sherry Matthews's son, was transported to University Hospital via helicopter. Matthews and Uselton were taken to local hospitals.

Authorities have not indicated whether or not charges or citations are being considered. They say the crash remains under investigation.
