San Antonio Man, California Man, 1 Injured in Truck Accident on I-10 in Crockett County, TX

Crockett County, TX -- February 1, 2023, a San Antonio man and two others were injured following an accident involving multiple trucks.

Initial details say that the crash happened at around 1:15 a.m. along I-10 near mile marker 344.

Authorities said that a 43-year-old Temple City, California man and a 36-year-old woman were in a Volvo tractor-trailer traveling eastbound along the interstate. Police believe the truck was going too fast for wet and/or icy conditions, and it lost control. This caused it to hit a 2014 Freightliner tractor-trailer as well as a 2023 Freightliner.

Due to the crash, both the California man and his passenger had incapacitating injuries. The driver of the 2023 Freightliner, a 29-year-old San Antonio man, reportedly had non-incapacitating injuries. No other details about the crash can be confirmed at this time.

A concern I have with these details is the same as with any crash involving poor weather conditions: Are authorities being thorough enough? They sometimes are quick to assume someone was speeding or had bad tires, and that's what led to the crash. Frankly, they're usually right. That's often the cause of crashes on icy roads. But if they get tunnel vision, they could miss something crucial. Were they thorough enough to avoid that here, or are there other important details not included in these public statements?
