Two Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident by I-35 in Kyle, TX

Kyle, TX — December 16, 2022, two 20-year-oold women were injured in a single-vehicle accident by Interstate 35 in Hays County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 11:45 p.m. on the I-35 service road near Kyle Parkway. Preliminary investigation suggests a Ford Fiesta was headed north on the service road in the left lane when the driver may have lost control. The car veered into the left guardrail and part of a concrete bridge structure, then rebounded right. It passed through the road and ran down an embankment before coming to rest.

The car's driver was seriously injured in the crash. Its passenger reportedly received minor injuries.

Investigators alleged intoxication may have been a factor in the wreck and collected blood samples for testing.

No further information is currently available.

People contact the firm all the time after they or a loved one were in a crash with preliminary details like these. A car can go off-course for plenty of reasons—some of them within a driver's control, many of them not—and such accidents often require careful and thorough investigation to be sure the true cause is found.

Part of the reason for all that careful scrutiny is that people are sometimes quick to rush to judgment and say a single-vehicle crash must be the driver's fault. Is that possible? Of course; operator errors cause a large percentage of solo crashes. Does that mean one can be taken for granted, though? Heck no.

While investigators should look for signs of distraction, speeding, impairment (which was suggested in Kyle), and other driver mistakes, they should spend just as much time looking for vehicular defects or malfunctions, hazardous roads, tire blowouts, medical emergencies, and many other less-common but still-very-possible factors. The most important part of any investigation is finding the facts that can tell the whole and true story, so I hope that's exactly what authorities in Hays County did for those young women.
