Man, Teen Injured in Car Accident on Highway 83 in Laredo, TX

Laredo, TX -- March 3, 2023, a man and a teenager were killed due to an accident where multiple vehicles crashed on Highway 83.

Initial details released by authorities say that the crash happened at around 11:40 p.m. along northbound lanes of the expressway near Piedra China Street.

According to officials, a Volkswagen SUV was apparently going the wrong direction on northbound lanes. There, it crashed with at least three other vehicles.

Due to the collision, the 16-year-old driver of the Volkswagen was flown to a San Antonio hospital. A 37-year-old man in one of the other vehicles also had serious injuries. It's unclear if anyone else was hurt.

Wrong-way collisions understandably bring up a lot of speculation, considering there are a few factors that are incredibly common in these situations. However, the fact the supposed wrong-way driver was a 16-year-old makes me wonder if this could just be a simple mistake, serious as it was.

An inexperienced driver accidentally turning the wrong way down a one-way road or ramp isn't exactly beyond the realm of reasonable possibility. As much as the more common factors are worth looking into, are authorities at least being impartial until they know the facts?
