Joseph Young, Rosenda Young Killed in Truck Accident in Medina County, TX
Medina County, TX -- January 20, 2023, Joseph Young and Rosenda Young were killed due to an accident where their vehicle crashed with a semi.
Public details were released by authorities which indicate that the crash happened just after midnight along southbound I-35 near mile marker 130. Quite frankly, those details leave many questions unanswered.
Right now, they confirm only that 51-year-old Joseph Earl Young and 37-year-old Rosenda Young were in a southbound Audi. Somehow, their vehicle hit the back of a semi-trailer that was supposedly "passing slower moving vehicles." As a result, the Audi lost control and crashed along the median. Both Joseph and Rosenda Young sustained fatal injuries, officials stated.
So what exactly happened between the truck "passing" vehicles and the Youngs' vehicle crashing with the 18-wheeler? How fast were the vehicles going? Did the truck change lanes to pass the other vehicles? If so, how much time passed between the truck moving over and the victims hitting it? Were police able to get statements from any of these other apparent drivers? Do they have any witnesses besides the only other person that survived the wreck?
Right now, it would obviously be ridiculous for me to try to speculate what did or didn't happen here, one way or the other. But I've seen too many families left on their own for weeks, even months waiting for authorities to get them answers only to end up more or less empty handed. My hope is authorities know a lot more about this crash than what they've released to the public so there isn't a family out there on their own left with unanswered questions.
