Fatality Accident: A Houston man was killed while working on Highway 90 east of Devers Tuesday. Department of Public Safety reports 37-year-old Jose Hernandez of Houston was laying down traffic cones as part of a construction vehicle convoy around 3:30 p.m. Investigators say Mr. Hernandez was sitting on the back of a moving truck setting out cones. A second work truck, driven by Leonardo Mulero, was following behind and struck the back of the first truck. The impact reportedly knocked Jose Hernandez off the back of the vehicle and onto the roadway where he was passed over by Mr. Mulero’s truck. DPS Trooper Erik Burse said the incident is still under investigation but no charges are expected to be filed at this time.

New Sheriff’s Vehicles: Liberty County Commissioners Court approved a request Tuesday by the Liberty County Sheriff that will provide his department with five new vehicles at no cost to the county. Four are humvees and the other is a mine resistant ambush protection vehicle. These military vehicles originated from the National Defense Authorization Act of 1997. This law allows transfer of excess Department of Defense property, which might otherwise be destroyed. Law enforcement agencies across the U.S. and its territories can apply for these vehicles. No equipment is purchased for distribution. Instead, all items are excess equipment turned in by military units or that has been held as part of reserve inventory until no longer needed.

Zebra Muscles Infestation: Lake Livingston has been added to the list of lakes fully infested by zebra mussels. A small fresh water mussel native to Russia and Ukraine, Zebra Mussels are often found attached to boats and then fall off those boats when used in other bodies of water, thus infesting the waterway. They were first detected in the Great Lakes in the 1980s and then were found in Lake Texoma here in Texas in 2009. As of the latest sampling, 13 lakes are now infested just in the Lone Star State. The state’s wildlife department and a coalition of partners are working to slow the spread of zebra mussels by reminding boaters to clean, drain and dry their boats, kayaks, trailers and gear before traveling from one water body to another.
