San Antonio, TX (April 14, 2022) – An auto accident reported on Wednesday in the San Antonio area claimed one person’s life. On April 13, emergency crews were dispatched to the scene of an auto accident on Interstate 10.

Reports from the San Antonio Police Department show that a collision between two cars and an 18-wheeler dump truck occurred on interstate 10 near Huebner Road. One vehicle caught on fire after the crash, resulting in extensive damage to the vehicle. The incident prompted crews to shut down the roadway for several hours as they worked to clear the scene.

One person sustained fatal injuries as a result of the accident. One other victim was transported to a local hospital for the treatment of injuries.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the victim injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the victim who lost their life in this accident. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Car Accidents in Texas

On average, around 325 people lose their lives every month in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Texas. These accidents are often preventable. However, we see a significant number of fatal crashes occur due to the actions of drivers. In fact, more than 80% of all motor vehicle accidents take place as a result of drivers engaging in reckless, negligent, and malicious actions while operating their vehicles.

Some of the leading causes of collisions that we see in Texas include:

  • Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who are using their phones to talk or text while operating their vehicles
  • Drivers who are speeding
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Running red lights/passing stop signs

When families lose loved ones in auto accidents caused by reckless or negligent drivers, they often have legal options available that they can use to recover compensation. Working with a wrongful death lawyer in San Antonio can ensure that your family is better positioned to hold the negligent driver accountable so you can recover.
