Five Injured in Alleged Drunk Driving Accident in San Antonio, Texas

SAN ANTONIO, TX — A road accident involving a donkey drawn carriage and a pickup truck left three people in the hospital in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday, August 9th, 2014, according to the news release from My San Antonio.

Police handling the accident investigation say that five people were hurt when a pickup truck collided with a donkey-drawn cart for reasons currently under investigation while driving in the 10000 block of Pearsall Road on Saturday afternoon. The driver of the pickup truck fled the scene immediately after the accident.

Scene of the Accident



Five people in total were taken to area hospitals, including both a three-year-old and a six-year-old to a nearby hospital where updates on their conditions were not currently available.

The driver of the offending vehicle was identified in the report as 50-year-old Javier Munoz, who currently faces hit-and-run and drunk driving related charges in connection with the accident.

The investigation into the crash is currently underway.


With any kind of alcohol related accident that happens in the State of Texas, victims and family of victims are always surprised to learn that the bars can be held liable for drunk driving accidents if their customer caused it and the bar failed to serve them in a safe or responsible fashion as dictated by state laws and regulations. This means if the whereabouts of the offending driver is found to be a licensed liquor seller or server, and the bartender did not cut off the customer when they were visibly intoxicated, or served too many drinks in a short amount of time, then the establishment can and should be punished right along side the drunk driver.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
