As he approached the tracks of Union Pacific he was forced to swerve the rig to the left and into a ditch to avoid colliding with an Amtrak tram. The near miss oc-curred about 9 45 a rn. I had about two seconds to decide what I was going to do. I had to do something or I would have been killed said Velez who was shaken but otherwise unharmed. The train s engineer reported to have been traveling about 70 mph a speed not uncommon or illegal for that area according to Garden Ridge police No citations were issued Velez said he believed the track s warning lights came on late but police at the scene said they believed the truck driver was not paying close enough attention as ne approached (Photo by Leslie Kriewaidb Clark happy over county sales tax, fire district votes B , DA.
