Reports coming out of San Antonio, Texas state that a man was involved in a single-car accident. According to law enforcement, the accident occurred at around 2:30 AM, on the De Zavala exit off of I-10. The driver lost control of his vehicle, a Tahoe, and collided with a utility pole. Police believe that factors of the accident were the high speed that the car seems to have been driven at, as well as the wet road conditions. Police also found an open alcohol container in the vehicle, which may indicate that the victim may have been under the influence while driving. In addition, reports state that the victim was not wearing a seatbelt. The victim has not been identified as of yet.
It is crucial to remember that driving under the influence of alcohol, no matter how slight, is extremely dangerous, not only to oneself, but also to others. In addition, driving at a high speed on a wet road is also extremely dangerous, as is driving without a seatbelt.
Wet road conditions are difficult to drive on and it is very common that accidents happen in bad weather. For example, reports coming out of Robstown state that Mary Smith and Wilson Smith, Jr. both were involved in a fatal car accident. The accident occurred at about 6 AM on FM-624 and County Road 79. The driver of a Chevy Trailblazer hydroplaned and spun out into oncoming traffic. It hit the car that Smith and Smith, Jr. were in. The Smiths died from their injuries, while the driver of the Chevy was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
