San Antonio, TX – Jay Mejia Killed in Double Fatal Accident on Loop 410Texas Accident News
San Antonio, TX (December 25, 2020) – Two people were killed during two separate car accidents that were caused by the same wrong-way driver in San Antonio.
The accident took place at about 3:00 a.m. on Christmas Eve in the 11500 block of Southeast Loop 410.
Police reports reveal that the wrong-way driver was under the influence as he drove his silver 2014 Mazda westbound in the eastbound lanes with a passenger inside.
Trying to circumvent a collision, one motorist veered out of the drunk driver’s way and ended up wedged underneath the back of a tractor-trailer. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Their identity has not been made known.
Just a few moments later, the wrong-way driver collided head-first with another vehicle that was being driven by Jay Simon Mejia, 33.
Police stated that the drunk driver and his passenger exited the Mazda just before it went on fire. They were both transported via ambulance to University Hospital. Their conditions are not known.
The driver was charged with Intoxication Manslaughter.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of both deceased victims, including Mr. Jay Simon Mejia, at this time.
