San Antonio, TX – Gabrielle Davila Killed and 3 Injured in Fatal Accident on Bandera Rd
San Antonio, TX (June 22, 2019) On the 21st of June, a fatal multi-car accident happened in the 6800 block of Bandera Road. At around 7:00 a.m., the Leon Valley Police Department received a call about a stolen vehicle and began heading to the location where the vehicle was spotted. On their way to the location, they spotted the vehicle at the intersection of Bandera Road and Grissom right before 8:00 a.m. The driver of the vehicle, 18-year-old David Gonzalez, realized the police were after him and began speeding past Shadow Mist Road.
The police lost the vehicle right before Misty Way, but then saw that Gonzalez had collided into a silver Toyota sedan, which pushed the Toyota into a silver Pontiac Vibe, which then struck a Toyota Tundra pickup truck. Gonzalez then ended up in the opposite lanes and crashed head-on with a red Ford Mustang. Gonzalez attempted to flee the scene on foot, but the police arrested him.
When the paramedics arrived, they found the driver of the silver Toyota sedan, 34-year-old Gabrielle Davila, dead at the scene. They found an injured female passenger in his vehicle and rushed her to University Hospital for treatment of critical injuries. The drivers of the silver Pontiac Vibe and the red Ford Mustang also sustained injuries and were both taken to hospitals as well.
Crews shut down the intersection as they worked to remove all of the damaged vehicles out of the roadway.
Our thoughts are with the family of Gabrielle Davila as they grieve over his loss. We also wish the three other injured victims a quick recovery.
