San Antonio, TX (October 11, 2021) – One person was hospitalized with injuries following a motor vehicle collision early Monday morning on the North Side of San Antonio.
At around 2 a.m., on October 11, a white SUV was traveling near the westbound side of Interstate 10 when it became involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler near UTSA Boulevard.
The crash caused the SUV to become pinned between the 18-wheeler and the center divider.
Two people were trapped inside the SUV. Both victims were extricated from their vehicles by responding firefighters. One victim was transported to a local hospital in stable condition. Two others were rendered aid by responding medical personnel. At this time, the cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Truck Accidents in San Antonio, Texas
A motor vehicle accident is something that can completely interrupt your life. If you are involved in a crash, chances are that you are going to have to take time off work. You will most likely require some form of medical care. The chances of requiring long-term care are greatly increased in accidents involving semi-trucks. Regrettably, truck accidents in our state leave more than 2,200 people with serious injuries every year.
Truck accidents often result in significant injuries for victims. Some of the most common injuries that victims sustain include:
Head injuries: Traumatic head injuries and brain injuries often require emergency medical care. These injuries can impact a victim’s mental, physical, and emotional health and wellbeing. Victims who suffer traumatic brain injuries often experience memory problems, aggression, and problems with balance.
Spinal cord injuries: A significant number of people harmed in accidents are left with debilitating spinal cord injuries. These injuries often require medical care and force victims into area hospitals and long-term care programs. Many sufferers experience some degree of paralysis.
Broken bones: Broken bones are incredibly common following collisions. Victims often suffer broken arms, legs, feet, and hands due to the fact that these body parts are generally exposed during crashes.
If you have sustained these or any other injuries in an accident, due to the negligence of another driver, you should seek assistance from our truck accident lawyers in San Antonio as soon as possible.
