SPRING BRANCH, TX – A 63-year-old man died, and another person went to the hospital after a multi-vehicle collision last Thursday just north of San Antonio.

The incident happened around 8 p.m. in the area of 4500 US-281 southbound, which is north of the Walmart Supercenter.

The investigation indicates that a Toyota entered the southbound shoulder of US-281 to avoid another vehicle. The Toyota then collided with two vehicles parked on the shoulder, a Dodge Dart with a flat tire and a Ford truck hauling a trailer.

The driver of the Ford had stopped to assist the driver of the Dodge with changing the tire. After the initial series of collisions, the Dodge proceeded to hit a black Mazda before falling from a bridge on the highway.

One person from the Dodge, identified as Mauro Mendoza, died at the scene of the accident.

Medics transported a second adult with unspecified injuries.

Police say that wet roadways were a contributing factor in the crash.

A full investigation is underway.
