Major Accident Snarls Traffic on I 37 at Mathis

By KTSA News Staff

A horrific accident in far Southeast Bexar County.

It happened at around 12:30 Tuesday Afternoon on I 37 South–near the Mathis Road overpass.

“For whatever reason, it looks like the vehicle lost control” Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said, adding “It’s possible they had a blowout. The driver may have tried to overcorrect, which caused the vehicle to roll. At least two adults were thrown from the vehicle.”

In all, three people were killed in the crash.

“We have two adults that were pronounced dead here at the scene. Unfortunately, also one child under the age of three” the Sheriff said, describing the deceased adults as women in their 30’s and 50’s.

Three others were also hurt.

“One adult male, one adult female transported from the scene in critical condition, as well as another child under the age of three” Salazar said. All three were taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center.

Investigators believe at least one of the people in the vehicle–which had Mexican tags–was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
