A 39 year old man who had been reported missing when he failed to show up at his daughter's wedding in New Braunfels last weekend has been killed in a traffic accident in west Texas. 


 Police say William Abel died in a car wreck near Ozona. 


  He had told relatives he was going to Austin to collect a 'gambling debt.'


  The DPS is investigating why he was driving on a rural road in Ozona.  There is also no word on what Abel was doing for the past week, or where he was.


  Investigators say the pickup Abel was driving swerved into an oncoming lane and was hit head on by a semi truck.
