High speeds and wild hogs on the newly opened stretch of State Highway 130 made for a dangerous combination the very first night the road was open.
Four crashes between vehicles and hogs were reported to authorities. Three were in the Lockhart city limits and a fourth was in Caldwell County.
A vehicle was totaled in one of the crashes. No serious injuries were reported, but authorities worry this problem will continue to get worse as traffic increases on the new highway connecting Georgetown and Seguin. The speed limit on the toll road is 85 mph.
