BULVERDE - Rescue crews searched for a second night for Calvin Gibson, 57, who was swept away at approximately 8 p.m. Wednesday after driving around a barricade where FM 1863 intersects with Cibolo Creek.

According to a story by the Associated Press, Gibson's wife, Sylvia Gibson, 54, was pulled to safety by members of the Bexar-Bulverde Volunteer Fire Department. She had been following her husband, who drove his Ford Ranger pickup around a barrricade, and was attempting to cross the creek when he was swept away by the floodwaters.
