6-year-old, Others Injured in Car Accident on North Loop 1604 in San Antonio, TX
San Antonio, TX -- March 11, 2023, a 6-year-old and others were injured following an accident where multiple vehicles crashed on Loop 1604.
Officials with the San Antonio Police said the incident happened just after 8:00 p.m. off the corner of North Loop 1604 and West Hausman Road.
It appears that a Toyota Tundra going southbound merged due to lanes going from three to two. Doing so, the pickup crashed into a Honda, then causing the Honda to crash with a Chevy Silverado.
Due to the collision, a 6-year-old in one of the vehicles was injured. The Tundra driver had serious injuries, and others involved had unspecified injuries.
Right now, there are citations pending due to the crash. It's not my place to comment on if those claims are true or not, of course. But one thing to consider is how thorough authorities are being in their investigations.
For them to charge someone, they generally need a pretty good idea that person made a mistake. But as far as getting folks the answers they need to get help, those priorities don't always align. It's why so many people find police reports lacking after crashes like this. Hopefully authorities here are being more thorough than that and considering the victims as they get answers. Otherwise, there may be important details that slip through the cracks.
