"According to witnesses, the white private utility truck was heading down westbound Saratoga," said James Garrett of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "For whatever reason, he had to take evasive action and struck one black vehicle from behind, which drove that vehicle into two others."

The road was shut down for almost two hours. The driver of the white utility truck was cited for failure to control speed.
