“The lady across the street, the neighbor, she saw the man, the driver was walking up and down the street and then a police man came and just grabbed him and hugged him and she said I just knew it was something bad,” said Adela Munoz, a nearby neighbor.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s office is currently investigating this on-the-job accident to determine the cause. At this time, they are unsure how long the investigation will last.
