Last night’s ice and snow has caused hundreds of auto accidents in the Central Texas/IH35 corridor.
Austin reported over 200 car wrecks, including two fatal accidents. In one accident, a 19 year old Plano man, Stephen Kendall, tragically lost his life when his vehicle collided with an 18 wheeler. There was also another fatality at the 183 flyover.
To the south of us, Hays County reported another 100+ auto accidents on its roadways, and the New Braunfels/Comal County area was also hit hard. The weather was so bad in that area that large parts of I35 from New Braunfels to San Antonio were completely closed. The Comal County wrecks included one traffic fatality in a New Braunfels car wreck involving an 18 wheeler.
Problems might have been the worst in San Antonio where every major highway, including I35, was closed for some portion of the night/morning drive. Like Austin, San Antonio reported over 200 of its own car wrecks.
On the northern part of I35, the Dallas/Fort Worth area continued to get hammered, as that area experienced a number of very serious car wrecks.
I guess the biggest shock is that the problem is so big that the New York Times saw fit to write an article about it.
