An heir of Y.O. Ranch fame died in a one-vehicle rollover in Gillespie County Thursday night, July 17.
Ingram resident Walter Schreiner Jr., 60, who was part owner of the Y.O. Ranch in Mountain Home, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash around 10:31 p.m. by Carl Schoessow, Justice of the Peace, Precinct 2.
Schreiner had been driving a 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe northbound on RM 1376 when he ran off the road to the right about 10 miles southeast of Fredericksburg, according to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) report by Trooper Michael Bacon.
Schreiner overcorrected to the left, then again to the right, at which point the vehicle rotated off the east edge of the roadway and overturned on its right side, in the process ejecting Schreiner, who was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt, Bacon said.
The SUV then struck a telephone pole before coming to rest atop Schreiner, he said.
