HUTCHINSON COUNTY -- DPS responded to a fatal wreck a week ago on Texas SH 136 involving one vehicle. 

Officials say Ezequiel Perez was traveling South when the vehicle drifted onto the guardrail, which caused the vehicle to vault into the river bottom between the northbound and southbound bridge. 

The vehicle then struck the ground, bounced, and landed ejecting the driver. 

The driver was not wearing his seatbelt.
