More than 100 crashes were reported in San Antonio Saturday night as the city struggled with ongoing winter weather conditions.
According to Spectrum Local News, the count ran from about 6 pm Saturday to 1 am Sunday morning. Among the crashes recorded was one involving a fire engine on 1604 and another involving a Bexar County Sheriff’s deputy on Interstate 10.
As a result of weather conditions, law enforcement opted to cut off most overpasses access between Interstate 10 and Interstate 410 at around 8 pm. Still, accidents continued into the early hours of Sunday morning as residents remained on the road.
City officials have continued to advise San Antonians to avoid traveling whenever possible as snow, ice, and freezing temperatures continue city-wide. When travel is necessary, drivers should take extra precautions prior to and during their trips.
The bottom line is you should never drive on icy roads if at all avoidable. This is the best way to avoid an accident. While it may seem inconvenient to delay your commute or remain at home, it is far less of an inconvenience than being involved in an accident.
However, if you must drive on icy roads or if you find yourself in unexpected icy conditions, follow these safety tips to reduce your risk of collision and injury.
