The rain-covered roads proved to be hazardous yesterday in San Antonio, contributing to a deadly accident between a semi truck and an SUV on U.S. 281.
The accident took place when the driver of the SUV did not notice the semi truck come to a stop in front of him on the highway. Due to the slick condition of the roadway, he did not have enough time to stop, subsequently rear-ending the semi truck. A young passenger in his vehicle, estimated to be between 7 years old and 10 years old, was killed on impact.
Two other individuals were taken to a nearby hospital, one of them being a young girl. At the time of the accident, both of the young passengers were wearing seat belts. Traffic was confined to one lane on the highway for several hours while the accident was being assessed and investigated.
At this time, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the young victim.
