On a recent Saturday night in Texas, many people attended a concert at the Alamodome. As is common after such events, traffic was moving at a snail’s pace as those attending the concert left the arena. At one point, traffic reportedly slowed to a stop, which prompted the driver of a pickup truck to swerve to try to avoid a crash, causing a multi-vehicle collision.
Pickup truck swerved, then other vehicles collided
When the pickup truck tried to swerve to avert disaster, it wound up setting off a chain reaction of collisions between numerous vehicles. San Antonio firefighters and police were dispatched to Interstate 37 North and Florida Street where they came upon the chaotic scene. At least two people were transported to an area hospital for treatment of their injuries.
Sadly, a 20-year-old woman who was involved in the collision was killed. The tragic incident occurred at about 9 p.m. As is typical in cases like this, investigators will be working to determine exactly what or who may have caused the initial crash.
When a loved one dies in a Texas collision
Learning of the unexpected and sudden death of a loved one in a Texas collision is understandably devastating. The emotional trauma families experience in such situations can linger for months as families try to piece their lives back together in spite of their loss. This type of tragedy often leads to litigation when an immediate family member of a deceased accident victim seeks recovery for documented financial losses in court by filing a wrongful death claim against the party or parties deemed responsible for the fatal accident.
