According to the Texas Department of Transportation (DOT), traffic on Interstate 35 between Laredo to San Antonio will increase to 234,000 vehicles per day by 2030. This stretch of road is already the scene of numerous car and truck accidents – in part because semi-trucks constitute nearly half of its traffic. As the number of vehicles traveling on I-35 continues to increase, it’s very likely that the number of auto accidents on I-35 will also to rise.

After hitting the van, he proceeded to drive through the grassy median and run into the concrete barrier dividing Bus. 35 from I-35.
