Reuben Bosquez Injured in Truck Accident on TX-16 in Bexar County

Bexar County, TX — August 19, 2022, 34-year-old Reuben Bosquez was injured in a crash with a commercial truck on State Highway 16 in Bexar County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 5:10 a.m. on TX-15 near Kings Trail. Preliminary investigation suggests Bosquez was driving a GMC Sierra pickup north on the highway when a Freightliner tractor-trailer reportedly turned right from a private drive into his path. The Sierra rear-ended the truck's trailer.

Bosquez suffered serious injuries in the crash. No other injuries were reported.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Reuben Bosquez Accident in Bexar County

Reports suggest the truck driver may have turned into the path of thru-traffic and caused the crash. Some may think that's more than enough to hold the truck driver (and by extension his employer) accountable, but truck accidents are rarely if ever that clear-cut.

The inventiveness of commercial defense attorneys might surprise many people. For instance, they might argue that the victim was speeding or used "improper evasive maneuvers"--two of trucking defense's greatest hits, suggesting the victim himself was actually to blame for her own injuries. They might even use police reports to their advantage, as investigators noted the victim might have been distracted before crashing into the trailer. They could also try to blame bad signage, sun glare, or any number of other factors. Those excuses may sound pretty flimsy, but each one must still be addressed and overcome.

Ultimately the most important thing to do is investigate carefully and let the facts do the talking. That could mean reconstructing the crash scene, running computer simulations, reading the electronic data from both vehicles, checking for any dashcam footage or other witnesses, and generally rounding up any and all helpful data that tells the whole story.

Unfortunately police don't always go to such lengths, so it often takes an experienced investigator to get their hands on that information. I suspect the truck driver's employer put together what they needed to defend themselves if the victim looked to them for help; did anyone help the victim get the facts he needed to make his case?
