On Tuesday afternoon in Hallettsville, a city east of San Antonio, a fatal truck accident claimed the lives of four people, including a father and his two sons.
The 39-year-old father was driving himself, his girlfriend, and his two sons, ages 10 and 9, to a Van Halen concert in San Antonio. At some point during their trip, the driver lost control of the vehicle, and crossed into oncoming traffic. The passenger side of their vehicle made contact with an 18-wheeler.
All four of the individuals inside the vehicle were killed as a result of the accident. The mother of the children revealed that her sons were spending their summer vacation with their father, and were looking forward to the Van Halen concert. Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the accident, but weather and high speeds are expected to play a role.
Our thoughts are with the victims’ families and friends during this difficult time.
