Victim ID’d in fatal rollover on rural road outside Bertram


BERTRAM — A motorist died at the scene of a one-vehicle rollover on a rural roadway on Nov. 14, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The accident happened at around 9:40 p.m. on CR 212A about 10 miles northeast of Bertram.

The victim has been identified as Daniel Roman-Hernandez of Bertram, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Investigators reported that a 2003 Dodge pickup was traveling southbound on the remote roadway at “a high speed around a curve.”

The vehicle then “veered to the left off the roadway and then overcorrected to the right … (and) traveled through a barbed wire fence and rolled over in direction of passenger side,” the report stated.

The driver was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene at 10 p.m. by Burnet County Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace Peggy Simon.
