Tailgating causes rear-end crash in Live Oak

LIVE OAK, TX – An unlicensed driver caused a rear-end collision on Tuesday while tailgating another driver on State Loop 1604.

The accident occurred around 7:20 on May 12, according to an officer from the San Antonio Police Department. A 38-year-old man driving a gray 1998 Mazda crashed into the rear end of a red 2010 Dodge while driving on SL-1604 near IH-35.

An officer on the scene reports that the Mazda was driving too close to the Dodge on the highway. When the Dodge slowed the Mazda could not stop fast enough to avoid a collision.

The front end of the Mazda hit the Dodge’s back bumper, causing moderate damage to both vehicles. A tow truck had to remove the two cars from the road after the accident.

Neither the 24-year-old Dodge driver or the driver in the Mazda sustained injuries during the crash.

Officials did not report whether or not they cited the 38-year-old man for driving without a license.
