Driver Injured in Wrong-Way Accident on I-35 in San Antonio, TX

San Antonio, TX -- January 17, 2023, one person was injured following an accident along I-35 which involved a wrong-way driver.

Preliminary details about the crash say it happened early Tuesday at around 2:30 a.m. along I-35 in the area of San Pedro Avenue and the Downtown area.

Police said they got calls about someone going the wrong way down the interstate. Before they could intervene, the driver crashed with an oncoming vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle was taken to a hospital with injuries that didn't appear serious, authorities said. The wrong-way driver was said to be suspected of intoxicated driving and arrested.

While there isn't much information to confirm all of these events, it's a tale as old as time, so to speak. To be rather blunt, almost every wrong-way crash involves someone under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Especially at 2:00 a.m. in a downtown area, it's especially important to find out if a local bar illegally over-served the driver. It's already against the law to over-serve someone, but doing so to the point they can't even tell which side of the highway they're on is a different level of negligent. Investigating that can help to ensure those businesses, too, are held accountable for their actions.

Like I said, though, it's important there is evidence to show exactly what happened here and whether or not someone needs to face consequences. Even if the news may think the victim's injuries weren't serious, I don't think I've met anyone involved in a serious crash that didn't want answers, regardless of their condition.
