Driver Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident on San Pedro Ave in San Antonio, TX

San Antonio, TX — October 20, 2022, an alleged wrong-way driver was injured in a single-vehicle crash on San Pedro Avenue in San Antonio.

Authorities say the incident happened around 1:20 a.m. along San Pedro near Contour Drive in Olmos Park. Preliminary investigation and witness statements suggest the victim was driving a pickup truck the wrong direction on the roadway, allegedly at high speeds, when he crossed left of center and crashed into a concrete fence. After the impact the truck overturned and the driver was trapped inside.

Responders extricated the victim and transported him to an area hospital.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on San Antonio Crash on San Pedro Ave

Preliminary reports paint a picture of the victim having trouble controlling his vehicle. Some may have theories about why, but as always I would suggest patience and an open mind rather than using just the few early details to form conclusions.

For all anyone knows right now what witnesses saw was just a man fighting for control of an unresponsive truck. Vehicle malfunctions happen far more often than people--including police--may realize, meaning that many wrecks that were out of a driver's hands ended up blamed on them anyway. Consider the General Motors "ignition switch" debacle a few years ago; how many people were unfairly accused of drinking or speeding when in reality their vehicles just wouldn't let them stop?

Maybe further investigation will find or confirm a simple explanation here, but that's for the facts to say and not for anyone to guess from the sidelines. At the very least the victim deserves the benefit of the doubt like anyone else until someone finds out whether there's more to the story.
