Man Injured in 18-wheeler Accident on Loop 410 in San Antonio, TX

San Antonio, TX -- May 21, 2022, one person was injured due to an accident where an 18-wheeler and a pickup crashed on Loop 410.

Authorities reported that the crash took place at around 2:00 p.m. along Loop 410 near Presa Street and I-37.

Officials said that a 32-year-old man was in a pickup traveling along Northeast Loop 410. As an 18-wheeler merged onto the highway lanes, it reportedly failed to maintain its lane, hitting the pickup and causing it to overturn.

Reports say that the Dodge driver had non-incapacitating injuries due to the crash. No other injuries were reported. Right now, police say inattention may have been a factor in the crash.

Commentary on 18-wheeler Accident on Loop 410 in San Antonio

With a crash like this, things may seem a little bit more straight-forward than they actually are. Even if something obvious happened here, like a truck driver on their phone, getting the evidence to tell the victim's side of the story isn't always so simple.

For example, I handled this situation not long ago where it was clear to us that a truck driver was on his phone when he caused a crash. His employer, however, denied that he even owned one. That sure didn't pass the smell test, but it was our burden to prove them wrong. Doing so required a lengthy deposition which eventually got the driver to trip over his own stories and admit he did in fact own a cell phone (big surprise, I know). Only then were we able to pull the records through a court order, proving the driver was watching pornography at the time of the crash--yes, seriously.

I'm not saying anything so dramatic happened here, but folks don't often take into account that there's almost always a company standing between them and the help they need. Having the evidence and tools to confront them on their level is crucial if victims and families are going to get the resolution they deserve. I don't see why this incident would be an exception to that.
