San Antonio, TX – 1 Killed and 3 Injured in Fatal Collision on SW Military Dr
San Antonio, TX (June 15, 2019) On the morning of June 15th, a fatal collision happened on Southwest Military Drive. A man was in his vehicle waiting at a traffic light when a speeding truck crashed into his car and pushed his vehicle a quarter of a mile from his initial position. The major accident happened at around 3:00 a.m.
When emergency personnel arrived at the scene, they found four people inside of the car suffering from injuries. Sadly, the driver died at the scene while three other passengers were left in critical condition. They were rushed to the nearest hospital available for immediate medical attention. There were four men inside of the truck at the time of the crash. Two of them fled the scene, but all of them have been captured by the police and are currently facing charges.
Our thoughts are with the deceased driver’s family at this time. We also send healing thoughts to the three injured victims.
Vehicle Accidents in Texas
Whenever vehicle collisions occur after hours, the cause is often drivers being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. When drivers operate their vehicles under those circumstances, they are more likely to speed and violate traffic laws, which often leads to major collisions that harm everyone involved.
