Multiple Crashes on North Bryant at 19th Street
Police and fire rescue crews responded to a three-car pile-up at the intersection of North Bryant and 19th Street at approximately 5:15 p.m. Thursday. Just as police arrived at the scene, a second major crash happened near the same location involving an 18-wheeler.
Bryant Blvd. is a bloody mess metaphorically. Though we saw no indications of any injuries, just some hot tempers.
Involved in the first crash was a Mazda CX-7, a Ram 2500 Megacab, and a green station wagon.
From our casual observation of the first crash, it appears that one of the cars rear-ended the Ram 2500 and a domino of collisions ensued. Police are investigating and one lane on North Bryant is blocked.
Update 5:53 p.m.
A San Angelo police unit was responding with sirens and lights to an earlier call and traveling through the North Bryant and 14th Street intersection. A Toyota Camry station wagon yielded to the police unit as it crossed Bryant. When the Camry yielded, the Ram 2500 hit the Camry from behind. Then, the Mazda CX-7 hit the Ram Truck from behind.
As the traffic volume swelled around the intersection due to the crash, a second, though minor, crash occurred with an undetermined make and model car and an 18-wheeler.
Investigating San Angelo police officer Palmer said that in the first crash, the Camry did the correct thing by law and yielded to a responding emergency
