Overnight four-vehicle, chain-reaction crash sends 1 person to hospital, police say

Incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. near I-10, Loop 410 interchange

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police officers who were working to clear a two-car crash on a Northwest Side highway early Friday suddenly found themselves with double the trouble.

They say two other vehicles became involved, resulting in a four-car pileup.

The crashes happened around 2:30 a.m. on eastbound Interstate 10 near the base of the ramp to Loop 410.

Police say they initially were called to the scene of a two-car crash in which a driver had suffered several broken bones. He was taken to University Hospital.

Before they could clear that crash scene, they say a third car crashed into one of those vehicles.

Within minutes, a fourth car also plowed into the scene, creating a big mess on the highway, police said.

It appears there were no other injuries.

Police, however, did have to shut down that area of the highway while they investigated the crash and worked to remove the debris.

The highway reopened before the morning commute.

The San Antonio Police Department, the San Antonio Fire Department and EMS all answered the call.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing, police said.
