n November 1, 2018, at approximately 3:50 PM, the Hays County Sheriff’s Office and the Wimberley Fire Department responded to a reported propane truck that overturned at the intersection of Winters Mill Parkway and Ranch Road 12.

Upon the arrival of first responders, it was determined that the propane truck overturned while attempting to turn north onto Ranch Road 12 from Winters Mill Parkway. The driver was able to exit the truck and was not injured. No other vehicles were involved.

At this time southbound traffic on Ranch Road 12 towards Wimberley is being diverted onto Jacobs Well Road while northbound traffic on Ranch Road 12 is being turned around approximately one-quarter of a mile from the scene.

Winters Mill Parkway is closed at FM 3237 and no traffic is being permitted to exit Woodcreek Drive onto Ranch Road 12.
