San Antonio, TX (September 26, 2021) - One woman died and several others were injured during a chain-reaction accident near downtown San Antonio on Saturday, September 25th.
The San Antonio Police Department and the San Antonio Fire Department responded to reports of a five-car collision in the northbound lanes of Interstate 37 at the Florida Street exit at about 9:00 p.m.
Police said that backed-up traffic caused by a concert at the Alamodome caused the initial accident. A pick-up truck swerved in an attempt to avoid the crash but instead caused a five-car pile-up.
As a result of the collision, two people were transported by ambulance to an area hospital in unknown condition and a woman that police believe to be in her 20s died at the scene.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
