One Injured in Auto Accident at Chadbourne and 7th in San Angelo, TX

San Angelo, TX — June 14, 2022, one person was hospitalized after a three-vehicle accident at a San Angelo intersection.

According to reports the incident happened Tuesday morning at the crossing of North Chadbourne and 7th streets. Preliminary investigation suggests a Chevy Malibu was headed west on 7th as a Dodge Ram was northbound on Chadbourne. The pickup T-boned the car in the intersection and pushed it into a nearby Buick vehicle.

One person was transported to an area hospital after the crash. Police say both drivers alleged they had a green light and the right-of-way when the collision occurred.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.

Reports say both drivers insisted they had the right-of-way. Clearly one or the other is mistaken one way or the other, so I hope investigators can track down whatever evidence they need to clarify matters. The most obvious place to start would be footage from any traffic cameras at that intersection, but it's probably best to reconstruct the accident and seek out witnesses as well. Combining different sources of data and ensuring they all tell the same story is the best way to find the whole truth of an accident.

Aside from determining who ran a red light, though, there's also the pressing question of why that happened. Did they just try to beat a yellow? Were they paying attention to something else when the light turned against them? Were they awake and alert? Did something else affect their concentration or response time?

I'm not implying anything or pointing fingers here. It's just important to learn not only what happened, but also what made it happen at all. Many times it's just a simple driver mistake, but others it's found that a third party was partly responsible for the damage done. It's always best to learn the whole truth before anyone closes the books on the matter.
