The weather is being blamed for a single vehicle accident near Robstown on Sunday afternoon.

On highway 77 near County Rd. 28, police said a truck hauling a private trailer lost control and rolled over.

Nobody inside the truck was hurt, but authorities want to remind everyone to pay attention to the weather.

“All the drivers out there right now, just adapt to the road conditions, slow down and just be careful. We have a lot of high winds and the wet roads,” said Ian Rosales with Nueces County Pct. 5.

The wind is also being blamed for another accident shortly before this one, where a truck hauling a live-stock trailer jack-knifed.

Nobody was injured in this accident either.
