Henry Stevenson Killed, Child Injured in Rollover Crash on I-37 in San Antonio, TX

San Antonio, TX — September 3, 2022, 59-year-old Henry Stevenson died and a child was injured in a rollover accident on I-37 in San Antonio.

Authorities say the incident happened around 3:30 p.m. on southbound I-37 near Donop Road. Preliminary investigation suggests Stevenson was driving a Chevy Blazer on the highway when he allegedly swerved to avoid a silver pickup truck that merged into his lane. The truck reportedly clipped the Blazer and sent it into the grassy median; Stevenson tried to correct course but lost control and the SUV overturned in the grass.

Stevenson and a 5-year-old boy in the Chevy were ejected in the rollover. Stevenson suffered fatal injuries and the child was taken to a local hospital.

Investigators suggest the pickup did not remain at the scene and its driver is now wanted for failure to stop and render aid.

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

Commentary on Henry Stevenson Accident in San Antonio

It's always frustrating to see another incident where someone responsible for a tragic accident on Texas roads didn't stay and offer whatever help they could, yet seemingly every day there are new reports of exactly that behavior. I'd imagine people in San Antonio (and everywhere else) are sick of seeing that happen, so I hope citizens and police will work together to locate that silver truck and find out what the runaway driver could possible have to say for themselves.

If law enforcement keeps all details and developments in the public eye, that can often lead to someone spotting the suspect and/or their vehicle and calling a tip line. Hopefully further investigation will find traffic or business camera footage, witnesses, or even debris with trackable serial numbers that will help police narrow the search. Releasing that information to the public is hugely helpful in gaining their cooperation to find the runaway driver.

When (and I say when, not if) the driver is located, hopefully more will be learned about why they ran (panic, active warrants, suspended license, drunk driving) and what can be done for the victims and their loved ones. I remain hopeful that continued efforts will see justice done.
