a Police Report
Antonio (25 August 2015) A peaceful neighborhood in far northwest San Antnio
was jarred awake at 1:15 this morning by a loud crash. A 5,000 pound
Montero, driven by Carla E. Yebra (age unknown) of the 7700 block of Sandia
Bluff crashed into a parked, 14,000 pound Ford F-350 dually, sending it
backwards, the massive front end airborne for 15 to 16 feet, propelling
it over the curb, thence sideways, plowing up an arc of landscaping, and
stopping over thirty five feet away. The heavy diesel truck slammed
into yet another parked F 350, pushing it three feet back.
The airbags deployed on the Montero and Ms. Yebra and her female passenger
had surprisingly minimal injuries. Neighbors who came to help reported
the occupants of the Montero reeked of alcohol. The investigating
officer (badge # 2242) also indicated he suspected alcohol played a part
and revealed that SAPD arrests numerous drunk drivers on that street and
that most of them are students at nearby UTSA. These allegations
are troubling since Ms. Yebra indicated to this reporter that she is in
a medically-related field.
Ms. Yebra ( @Carlittita ) apparently phoned her parents and boyfriend soon
after the high speed crash. They came quickly and before long officer
# 2242 revealed to this reporter that he was on the verge of arresting
them for interfering with his investigation, especially the sobriety test.
Also, we await an investigation to determine if calls or texts were sent
or received by cell phone number 210-781-2334 in the moments before Ms.
Yebra demolished the F 350.
An individual with some knowledge of the laws of physics, on analyzing
the displacement of the very heavy diesel truck, theorized Ms. Yebra was
driving at 70 to 100 mph in a 30 mph zone. Officer # 2242 reported
there were no skid marks. At first, Ms. Yerba told this reporter
she had swerved to avoid hitting an animal. She later told the police
she had no memory of what happened.
The owner of the totaled F 350 is now saddled with huge costs to replace
it since insurance will likely pay only $10,000 and a replacement F 350
will cost $55,000 to $60,000. Ms. Yebra's boyfriend was indignant
when this calculation was brought to her attention as she was being escorted
away by her mother. Is it now permissible to inflict financial ruin
on another and not suffer consequences?
Whatever happened to personal responsibilty?
