Teenager Killed in Single-Vehicle Accident on Old Pearsall Road in San Antonio, TX
San Antonio, TX -- November 13, 2022, a teenager was killed due to an accident where his vehicle crashed off Old Pearsall Road.
Investigators said that the incident happened at around 5:22 a.m. along Old Pearsall Road at the intersection of Military Drive.
Initial details said that a 16-year-old boy was in a Dodge Journey was northeast on Old Pearsall at the time. Crossing the intersection, the vehicle somehow ran off-road and hit a traffic signal. Due to the collision, the driver died from his injuries.
Authorities confirmed no additional details, and I can only hope that's out of respect to the victim and his loved ones. Otherwise, my concern is they may not have given the crash the attention it deserves. Unfortunately, a lot of people see a teenager get into a crash and immediately assume they were at fault.
That's obviously possible, but I consistently talk on this blog about how complex single-vehicle wrecks can be. What good reason could there be for making an exception when a family loses their child? If my kid lost their life in a crash, I wouldn't rest until I knew I was getting the whole story. Were authorities here prudent enough to do that for this grieving family?
