One Injured in Three-Vehicle Crash on NE Loop 410 in San Antonio, TX

San Antonio, TX — June 30, 2022, one person was hospitalized after a three-vehicle accident on Loop 410 in Northeast San Antonio.

According to reports the incident happened around 2:30 a.m. on the 6100 block of Northeast Loop 410. Preliminary investigation suggests a black pickup truck hit another vehicle, causing the struck vehicle to hit another one nearby. Images taken at the scene show all three vehicles had extensive damage after the crash.

A woman involved in the wreck was transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported.

Police later determined the pickup truck driver was intoxicated and took them into custody.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Three-Vehicle Accident in San Antonio

If blood tests confirm the suspect was intoxicated as police believe, they may face some legal consequences for the damage done to the victim. That would certainly be in order given the devastating damage impaired drivers can and do cause, but the specifics of what happens between that person and that state aren't for me to remark upon. Instead, I'd prefer to focus on what can be done to help the injured victim. If intoxication really played a significant part in what happened then it's important that she know about Texas dram shop law and how it could help her.

Dram shop law basically says that a licensed alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person may be liable for injuries they cause while under the influence. That means bars, restaurants, liquor stores, and other establishments can be held legally accountable when they keep selling drinks to customers who then hurt someone in accidents like the one on Loop 410.

Despite dram shop's importance, though, police priorities generally lie elsewhere and they rarely have the time or resources to hunt down negligent businesses. It's often better to have independent investigators look into that rather than waiting for police to take action. No matter who does the looking, though, the sooner someone investigates what led to the crash the sooner there can be some useful answers. Any further steps would largely depend on what those answers turn out to be.
