Carlos Chaires Killed in Crash with Parked Truck on Pine St in San Antonio, TX

UPDATE (October 26, 2022): Sources have identified the victim of this accident as 45-year-old Carlos Chaires.

San Antonio, TX — October 3, 2022, a driver died in a crash with a parked truck along South Pine Street on San Antonio's East Side.

Authorities say the incident happened around 12:30 a.m. on South Pine near Alabama Street. Preliminary investigation suggests the victim may have been speeding in the area; witnesses told investigators his Hyundai Entourage van then hit a parked Dodge Ram on the curb. The impact pushed the pickup several yards away into a residence's lawn.

The striking driver was ejected from his vehicle and suffered fatal injuries. No other injuries were reported.

The investigation continues. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Carlos Chaires Accident on South Pine St

If the victim acted recklessly as witnesses alleged, investigators still need to learn precisely why he did that. It's one thing if he just got a little too ambitious with his speed on the roadway, but there are other explanations as well--vehicle or brake failures, inattention, a medical emergency, or in some cases intoxication.

I don't know whether one, several, or none of those played parts in what happened on Pine Street, but considering a man lost his life in the wreck it seems like the least to be done is try to find out the reason. What's learned could affect what else should be done; for instance, impairment could have further legal implications if the victim was over-served somewhere. With that said, looking into it could just rule it out and I'm not suggesting otherwise.

All the details of this crash should be learned and all its possible explanations considered to be sure the whole story is found. A careful investigation is best after any accident, and for the sake of bringing the victim's loved ones some much-needed answers and help I don't see this being any different.
