A man was killed in a San Antonio car accident Sunday night.
According to officials with the San Antonio Police Department, the accident occurred shortly after 10:30 p.m. Sunday on Interstate 10, just before La Cantera Parkway. Investigators say a man driving a pickup truck in the westbound lanes of the interstate lost control of his vehicle, struck a retaining guide-wire in the median and collided with a metal utility pole.
The driver was pinned in his vehicles and San Antonio Fire Department personnel used the Jaws of Life to extricate the man. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the wreck.
The cause of the auto accident remains under investigation by the San Antonio Police Department. The victim’s name has not been released, pending notification of the family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family and friends during this difficult time.
