Pile-Up of Four Japanese Cars on Avenue N at St. Mary's
Avenue N saw a four vehicle crash early this afternoon at approximately 1 p.m. Involved are a Toyota Camry, Mazda Tribute, Nissan Titan and an unidentified Mazda car Avenue N is down to one lane both ways as San Angelo police and firefighters clear the scene. Three wreckers are already on site.
So far, there are no reports of major injuries.
Update 1:31 p.m.
The wreckers arrived quickly and the scene is getting cleared just as fast. Officer Byrne is the investigator. The Nissan Titan has San Angelo ISD markings.
Update 1:45 p.m.
The investigating officer briefed us on his findings: Waiting to turn left was the gold Toyota Camry. There is no turn lane on this stretch of Avenue N. The next in line was the Tribute, then the Nissan Titan with SAISD markings. While that traffic was stopped, waiting, a silver Mazda 6 came up from behind. The Mazda driver looked down momentarily and when she looked up, it was too late to stop. The Mazda crashed into the back of the Titan, and the domino effect ensued.
The driver of the Mazda 6 was cited for failure to control speed.
A significant amount of oil seeped out of the Titan. Fire crews used a granular absorbent to clean up the mess.
