San Antonio, TX (November 9, 2021) – One person was left with injuries following a motor vehicle accident in the San Antonio area on Monday morning. Just after 2:30 a.m., on November 8, emergency crews received the request for assistance on-site at a crash on Northwest Loop 410.
Reports from the San Antonio Police Department show that a box truck crashed into a second vehicle on Northwest Loop 410 near Cherry Ridge during the morning hours. The impact of the crash caused the box truck to roll over.
The driver of the truck sustained injuries in the accident. EMS rendered aid to the victim on-site before transporting them to a local hospital for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victim who was injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Truck Accidents in Texas
Every year, auto accidents leave more than 205,000 people with injuries. Being involved in a truck accident can have devastating consequences for victims. Accidents involving trucks are more likely to end in serious injuries for those involved. These vehicles are much larger than other passenger vehicles sharing the road. As a result, they are more likely to be destructive in collisions.
The majority of these accidents are caused by some type of driver error. In fact, nearly 80% of collisions in our state are due to driver error. Some leading causes of collisions we see each year include:
- Drowsy driving
- Driving while distracted by phones and other objects
- Driving while impaired
- Exceeding federally regulated hour limits
- Overloading cargo
