Three Killed in Seguin Five-Vehicle Crash

A fatal car accident was reported in Seguin, Texas on Thursday, August 26th, 2021. The incident transpired during the afternoon, at an unspecified time, on the I-10, near the State Highway 123 Bypass. The Seguin Police Department was one of the first responders who arrived at the scene.

Five vehicles were involved in the crash – including a semi-truck. According to early reports from the crash scene, a semi-truck (which did not end up in the wreckage) was carrying a cargo of meat when its load spilled all over the highway. Due to the nature of the product, the highway ended up becoming slippery, and five other vehicles, including another semi-truck, ended up crashing down the I-10. Several of the vehicles ended up going up in flames due to the impact of the crash. Multiple individuals were injured, and three people were declared dead at the scene. Several lanes of the I-10 were closed while firefighters tried to put out the flames. Authorities are still looking into the circumstances of the accident.
