(New Braunfels) -- A McQueeney man was injured following a three vehicle accident in New Braunfels. David Ferguson, the communications coordinator for the New Braunfels Police Department says the accident occurred at around 10:30 a.m. Monday in the 1100 block of Loop 337. Involved in the collision were a large box truck driven by the McQueeney man, a small pickup truck and passenger car.

Ferguson says first responders arrived on scene and found that the box truck and the pickup truck had collided nearly head-on, causing serious, potentially life-threatening injuries to the occupants of the vehicles. The third vehicle was struck by the pick-up truck in the immediate aftermath of the initial collision.

He says the driver of the Dodge pickup truck, a 55-year old man from New Braunfels, was taken by Airlife to University Hospital. The passenger in the Dodge pickup truck, a 57-year old man, was transported to San Antonio Military Medical Center by ground EMS.

The 40-year old man from McQueeney, was also reportedly transported to Christus New Braunfels Hospital by ground EMS while the passenger of the box truck, a 21-year old male, was also transported to Christus New Braunfels Hospital.

There were no injuries reported from the third vehicle.

Ferguson says the initial investigation by the NBPD Traffic Unit indicates that the box truck (which was traveling southbound on Loop 337) inadvertently veered into the oncoming/northbound lanes of traffic, causing the collision. At this time, he says no charges are expected to be filed.
