Cindy Vongsa Killed in Car Accident on Loop 410 in San Antonio, TX

San Antonio, TX — March 30, 2022, 27-year-old Cindy Vongsa was killed in a traffic accident on Loop 410 in San Antonio.

Authorities say the incident happened around 11:45 p.m. on Loop 410 near Babcock Road. Preliminary investigation suggests Vongsa was sitting in a Toyota RAV4 that may have been disabled with its lights off in the highway's travel lanes.

Two vehicles approached the SUV; the driver in front swerved abruptly to avoid it after seeing it, but the second driver told police he had no time or room to avoid it. His Toyota Tundra hit the RAV4 and the impact sent the SUV spinning away. The pickup then crashed into a nearby concrete barrier.

Vongsa suffered fatal injuries in the crash. The Tundra driver received a laceration to his head and was treated at an area hospital.

No further information is currently available.

Investigators later added blood-test results that showed the crash victim had a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of .196 at the time. I mention that with no judgment, but investigators should consider it as a possible contributing factor to what happened on Loop 410. If the victim's alleged intoxication had anything to do with her being stopped on a highway with her lights off, there may be more to this accident than people realize.

For example, depending on where the alcohol came from that night a local business may be partly responsible for the tragic result of the accident. Texas dram shop law holds businesses that over-serve alcohol responsible for the injuries their intoxicated patrons cause or suffer while under the influence. Not every DWI crash involves a law-breaking bar, but finding out where the drinks came from is an important step--one too often neglected by police--when ensuring everyone responsible for the damage is held accountable.

Having said that, it's important not to consider alcohol the sole culprit until a full investigation finds out if anything else played a significant part. Exactly why the RAV4 was stopped, lighting and visibility in that area, road and weather conditions, the other drivers' speeds and attention levels, their vehicles' conditions, and many other specifics should be learned to ensure the truth is known. The victim's loved ones deserve no less than the whole story; anything beyond that would depend on what is learned.
