Maverick County Sheriff's Office(PRESS RELEASE)-December 29, 2014
Deputies were called to the scene of a motor vehicle accident near the Dimmit County line Friday morning, minutes past the 8 AM hour. At approximately 8:02 AM units were dispatched to Highway 277 East, where they arrived to make contact with fifty-six year old Gabriel Jalomo, the driver of a white 2004 International flatbed tow truck. Mr. Jalomo told officials that he was attempting to avoid striking a deer on the roadway when he lost control of the flatbed and high the guardrail. The impact caused the vehicle to rollover once, landing upright. Mr. Jalomo refused medical attention at time of the report and the Texas Department of Public Safety and arrived and has since taken over the investigation.
