SEGUIN – A collision between a concrete mixer truck and a utility truck in San Marcos earlier this year resulted in a lawsuit.

Recent Guadalupe County District Court records show that Kyle resident Albino Soto filed the suit against Hunter Industries, Ltd.; Weisman Equipment Co, Ltd.; and their employee Christopher Lee Haseloff in response to the Jan. 15 accident on Aug. 17 in the Guadalupe County 25th District Court.

Per the complaint, Haseloff was operating a 2007 White International 4300 DT 466 belonging to Hunter Industries and Weisman when he “failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection of Braune Road and State Highway 123” and struck a 2015 White Freightliner concrete mixer truck driven by Soto.

“The violent collision forced the plaintiff’s 2015 Freightliner to rollover onto the driver side and slide on the road surface for approximately one quarter of a mile,” the original petition says.

Soto further asserts that he was trapped in his vehicle with “catastrophic injuries,” and the “Jaws of Life” were required to extract him. The complainant was then transported to University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin.

His recovery continues to this day, the suit says.

Consequently, Soto seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

He is represented by attorneys E. Chevo Pastrano and Ginna G. Pastrano of The Pastrano Law Firm in Houston.
