BEXAR COUNTY, Texas — Two students died Jan. 8 in a tragic collision outside of Johnson High School in northeastern San Antonio.

The students’ vehicles collided at about 4 p.m. on Bulverde Road near TPC Parkway for reasons that were not immediately clear, according to local authorities.

Both vehicles caught fire. The drivers were trapped inside and pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

The victims reportedly include a 16-year-old male and 17-year-old male, though local authorities have not released their identities.

Several students and parents held a vigil at the crash site on Jan. 9 in honor of the students.

Commentary on The Fatal Vehicle Fire Killing 2 in San Antonio

San Antonio, Texas Crash Kills 2I am deeply saddened to learn two young men passed in this horrific accident. The effects of this crash will reverberate throughout the community for years to come. I offer my condolences to the families of the deceased and hope for their solace during this time of grief.

Some folks learning of this accident may be quick to judge the actions of the young men. Some may blame the boys and conclude this was just an unfortunate accident. However, it is essential to realize how significant a post-collision fire is. Vehicles are not designed to catch fire, and when they do, it is often the result of faulty design. My firm has represented clients across the nation in claims against auto manufactures when their vehicle bursts into flames. Multiple defects can cause post-collision fires. One of the primary causes is misplaced fuel lines. When auto manufacturers fail to design fuel lines correctly, the likelihood of post-collision fires significantly increases. It is difficult to determine what caused this post-collision fire without thoroughly reviewing the vehicles involved.

I hope the families left behind can find answers to their questions during this time of grief. Often, answers provide strength to move forward when the next step seems unbearable.
