Three People Killed after Fiery Five-Vehicle Crash in Seguin

Seguin, TX (8/26/2021) – A fiery five-vehicle crash caused three fatalities Thursday afternoon.

The accident happened on Interstate 10 near the State Highway 123 Bypass. A semi-truck transporting meat products lost its load on the roadway. The debris caused another semi-truck to crash into a guardrail and another car in order to avoid the crash. 

Authorities say the car went up in flames and that it caused a chain reaction wreck of five vehicles. 

Three people were killed in the crash. They were identified as 48-year-old Jason Howell, 36-year-old Jason Sanchez, and 37-year-old Joseph Cline.

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

Pileup Accident Attorneys

Pileup accidents typically involve at least three vehicles, but sometimes more. A common scenario of this kind of accident happens when a vehicle fails to reduce speed and rear-ends a car stopped in traffic and pushes it into many other stopped cars, much like the situation above. Pileup collisions result in thousands in damages and many claims need to be filed with insurance companies.

An investigation into this accident will prove essential due to the fact that the collision above resulted in flames, leaving three people fatally killed. It’s important to consult legal counsel in the event of a serious car accident. If you or a loved one were involved in a car accident or suffered serious injuries such as fractures or burns, immediately contact a legal expert to help you evaluate your options.
