Christopher Carrington Killed in Auto Accident on I-37 in San Patricio County, TX

San Patricio County, TX — December 24, 2022, 33-year-old Christopher Carrington died in a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 37 in San Patricio County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 7:45 p.m. on I-37 near mile marker 22. Preliminary investigation suggests Carrington was driving a Ford F-150 pickup north on the highway when he allegedly drifted onto the grassy shoulder. The truck entered a side-skid and overturned, then rolled several times before coming to rest.

Carrington was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.

People tend to see a single-vehicle accident like this one and reach some pretty hasty conclusions about how it happened. Many of those revolve around various driver mistakes like speeding or getting distracted, but it's important to keep an open mind and consider other possibilities beyond the victim's control. If the pickup lost traction or malfunctioned, for instance, it wouldn't be right to blame the crash on operator error.

I don't mean to suggest I know something police don't. I just know from long experience that folks sometimes rush to judgment, and that can do nothing but hurt the people who are already reeling from a terrible loss. Instead, it's best to investigate carefully and thoroughly and find out not just what happened, but exactly how and why. At the very least that man's loved ones deserve to know the whole story--will police efforts be enough to get that for them?
