San Antonio, TX (9/9/2020) – A man was killed in a fatal wreck that happened along Loop 1604 on the North Side of San Antonio.

The accident happened Wednesday morning around 6 a.m. near Stone Oak Parkway.

Police say two vehicles hydroplaned, causing one driver to lose control and crash into other vehicles. It caused a chain-reaction collision. 

Emergency crews extracted the man from the vehicle, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The westbound lanes of Loop 1604 were closed during the investigation, but have since reopened, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

Car Accident Lawyers

Car accidents happen on highways, freeways, and county roads every day, whether it be due to road conditions, traffic, construction, weather conditions, or even debris. In the case above, wet roads caused a pickup truck to hydroplane. Hydroplaning occurs when the combination of a slippery road, speeding, and tire pressure causes a driver to lose control. 

Car accidents caused by hydroplaning are the reason many people suffer injuries, even accidents that cause people to be hospitalized in the intensive care unit at the hospital, or killed.
