Rogelio Valenzuela Killed in Single-Vehicle Accident on US 90 in San Antonio, TX
UPDATE (August 31, 2022): Reports have identified the man killed in the crash as 18-year-old Rogelio Valenzuela. Additional details about the crash are unavailable at this time.
San Antonio, TX -- August 6, 2022, one person was killed as the result of an accident where their vehicle crashed along US 90.
In reports, officials said that the crash took place at around 2:30 a.m. along US Highway 90 West near Military Drive.
According to investigators, a Chevy Silverado was eastbound on the US 90 access road. Somehow, the vehicle lost control, causing the vehicle to go up an embankment and into a light pole.
The crash ejected the unidentified driver, resulting in fatal injuries. It appears no one else was involved in the crash. The crash is still under investigation.
Something that always concerns me is if authorities are taking the time to look into things like mechanical issues, road hazards, a hit-and-run, medical conditions, tire blowouts, etc. There are all kinds of reasons someone can lose control of a vehicle without doing anything wrong. Could the same be true here?
I know that a crash at 2:30 a.m. will no doubt lead some people to jump to conclusions. Obviously, there are common factors drivers can avoid which lead to crashes like this. But looking into a fatal crash isn't about jumping to conclusions. It's about getting answers for a grieving family. So what's the point in speculating when the evidence can speak for itself? It's just a matter of making sure investigators aren't overlooking any of that important evidence.
