San Antonio Man Injured in Truck Accident on I-35 in New Braunfels, TX

New Braunfels, TX -- May 11, 2022, a San Antonio man was injured due to an accident where a car and a truck collided on I-35.

Investigators reported that the crash took place at around 1:00 p.m. near I-35 and Walnut Avenue.

Officials said that a 28-year-old San Antonio man was in a Hyundai Santa Fe traveling northbound along the interstate. It appears that metal somehow went through the Hyundai's windshield, causing it to lose control and crash into a trailer being hauled by a nearby truck. The car then careened off-road.

The driver of the Hyundai reportedly had incapacitating injuries. Right now, it's unclear where the debris came from or whether or not any other drivers were involved.

San Antonio Man Injured in Truck Accident on I-35 in New Braunfels, TX

A situation like that often seems unavoidable, and it's entirely possible it was. After all, there aren't many ways to trace a piece of debris to its source when it's been lying on the highway before getting kicked up into someone's windshield. But these reports might not be telling the whole story. Could it be the metal fell off the trailer the victim's car hit? Was there another vehicle ahead police didn't mention? Did anyone have a dash cam that saw a truck lose cargo in the road? Was this a construction zone that the crew allowed to impede on traffic lanes? It certainly wouldn't be the first time further investigations showed there was more to a story. That's why it's important there are thorough investigations beyond simply what's in these initial crash reports.
