Officer Dana Vanya with the Corrigan Police Department was dispatched to the scene along with Corporal Sam Lattner with the Texas Highway Patrol. Traffic was not blocked during investigation, however, cleanup may cause some traffic congestion. Garza could be facing charges pending the totality of the investigation. Riley Wrecker Service out of Corrigan was summoned to clean up the mess. At time of press (7 am, April 4), the mess is still being cleaned up.
