Friday afternoon, I-35 was shut down for several hours while police investigated a deadly highway accident. According to SAPD, a 19-year-old male is dead after he was found run over by an 18-wheeler on the Southwest side. The police were called to the scene, near loop 1604 around 10:00 Friday morning. Someone called emergency services regarding a body lying in the road, heading towards the Medina River. The highway was shut down for a total of 4 hours.
According to witnesses, the body came from underneath the truck as it passed bystanders. SAPD says it appears that the man was run over by this 18-wheeler, and the driver did not stop. It is possible that the driver was unaware that anything happened. Since no one saw the victim near the highway prior to the incident, it is possible that the 19-year-old was stowed under the truck. However, SAPD is still trying to locate the driver for questioning. So far, detectives are handling this case as a failure to stop and render aid investigation.
