UPDATE (October 25, 2022): Officials gave information identifying the victim as Bryan Davenport. Additional details about the accident remain unclear.

San Antonio, TX -- October 7, 2022, one person was killed due to an accident where a vehicle struck a man underneath I-10.

Officials said that the incident happened at around 6:00 a.m. along I-10 at Wurzbach Road.

It appears the victim was a man in his 50s that was asleep underneath the I-10 overpass. On the roadway, a woman apparently lost control, and her brakes may have malfunctioned as she attempted to regain control. The vehicle went off-road where it then hit and killed the man.

At this time, details about the possibly faulty brakes are unavailable.

Commentary on Bryan Davenport Pedestrian Accident in San Antonio

Most anyone with experience is going to be skeptical about a potential brake failure simply because they aren't all that common. Experienced professionals, however, will still take that possibility seriously. A brake failure can be a sign of poor maintenance, but it can also be a sign of a serious manufacturing issue.

Crash avoidance features like anti-lock braking, auto braking, power steering, etc. are all crucial in modern vehicles. If someone doesn't have access to something they otherwise should, then steps should be taken to address that. I can't help wondering if authorities here even have the training or tools to rule out something so specific. This incident may be better off in the hands of independent accident reconstructionists with more specialized tools.
