San Antonio, TX (January 13, 2022) – At around 4:30 a.m., on January 11, emergency crews were requested on-site at an industrial accident on Jackson Keller Road.

Reports from the San Antonio Police Department show that a woman was involved in an accident at the Andy Garcia Foods processing plant located in the 1800 block of Jackson Keller Road.

As the woman engaged in cleaning the chopper/mixer machinery, she became lodged in it from the waist down. The woman was removed from the machine and rushed to a local hospital for the treatment of injuries.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the woman who was injured in this accident. We hope for her full recovery.
