The president of the San Antonio Oil Company was among two people killed Tuesday when his car collided with a gravel truck on Loop 1604 Road on the northwest side on Tuesday. According to Express-News, 63-year-old John Hayes was the president of oil and gas company Activa Resources LLC.

Hayes was killed along with a gravel truck driver, 25-year-old Delgado Garcia, who was thrown from his truck after running a red light at an Interstate 10 access road intersection and colliding with Hayes’ vehicle. The car Hayes was riding crashed into a pole when he was hit. Garcia died at University Hospital, but Hayes was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hayes has worked in the oil and gas industry for over 30 years, including working for two related companies called Activa and Tiva Resources. He was president when both companies filed for bankruptcy, which Hayes attributed to “the sharp drop in crude oil prices during the COVID-19 pandemic,” according to Express-News.

Activa was launched in 2003 and Tiva in 2018. Hayes has also served on the boards of Santikos Enterprises and the San Antonio Area Foundation, a philanthropic non-profit organization that provides scholarships and grants to local organizations. The Area Foundation also manages the business assets of the late John L. Santicos and provides grants.
