San Antonio, TX – Simon Spectre Killed in I-35 Collision
San Antonio, TX (September 17, 2020) – Police officers in San Antonio are investigating the cause of a multi-vehicle collision along an access road to Interstate 35 by Thousand Oaks Drive
that left one man dead and at least one other victim injured on Tuesday, September 15th.
According to officials with the San Antonio Police Department, 31-year-old Simon Daniel Spectre was killed in an accident involving an 18-wheeler and two other cars near Thousand Oaks Drive at about 3:30 p.m.
Officers stated that the tractor-trailer was heading southbound along the access road at the time of the accident. The truck operator told crash investigators that his brakes failed, causing him to be unable to stop at the red light at the intersection of Thousand Oaks Drive.
Spectre, who was driving a Honda Civic, was heading westbound through the intersection at Thousand Oaks Drive when he was hit by the tractor-trailer.
The force of the impact pushed Spectre’s Civic into an eastbound Honda Fit. The driver of the Fit sustained critical injuries and was transported via ambulance to Brooke Army Medical Center.
