Two Killed in Auto Accident on Highway 83 South in Uvalde County, TX

Uvalde, TX — January 25, 2023, two people died in an early-morning auto accident on Highway 83 South in Uvalde County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 4:00 a.m. on Highway 83 South on the Nueces River Bridge, near the Zavala County line. Preliminary investigation suggests the victims were riding in a single vehicle on the bridge when it allegedly went out of control for unknown reasons. The vehicle then crashed on the bridge, causing fatal injuries to two of its occupants. An unknown number of other people were also injured.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is currently available.

Over the years I've seen many single-vehicle accidents caused by things a driver had no control over, yet in many of those cases the public (and sometimes even authorities) were quick to point fingers at operator error. The truth is a car can go off-course for plenty of reasons—some of them avoidable, some not—and such accidents need careful and thorough investigation to be sure the true cause is found.

Is it possible that effort would find a simple explanation? Maybe. Could there also be a lot more to the story than anyone knows yet? Absolutely. The most important thing is to find the clear facts that tell the real story, as the people who lost loved ones on that bridge deserve no less. I hope that's exactly what authorities will bring them before all is said and done.
