San Antonio, TX (October 4, 2021) – One person was left injured following a two-vehicle accident in Bexar County on Thursday, September 30. During the afternoon hours, the San Antonio Police Department was notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 10.
Reports from authorities show that a maroon 2002 GMC and a teal 2015 Kia SUV were traveling on Interstate 10 just north of the area of West Hildebrand Avenue. The GMC was following too closely, resulting in the two vehicles colliding.
The driver of the Kia, a 73-year-old female, sustained injuries in the accident. She was transported to a local hospital for further care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victim injured in the accident. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in San Antonio, Texas
In Texas, we see our fair share of motor vehicle accidents. In fact, roughly every 2.5 minutes, someone is hurt in a traffic-related incident somewhere in our state. These accidents add up to more than 200,000 people every year. Although the majority of accidents end in minor injuries and disruptions for victims, around 15,000 people are hospitalized with severe injuries that require extensive medical care.
Although most drivers are considerate of others, we see many accidents take place due to driver errors. When vehicles follow too closely, they run the risk of not being able to stop in time to avoid a collision. Rear-end collisions account for around 29% of total collisions every year in the United States. In San Antonio, we see countless people suffer back and neck injuries, broken bones, and other severe injuries in these collisions.
When victims are hurt in collisions, they should seek the assistance of a car accident lawyer in San Antonio as soon as possible. In some cases, victims may have legal options available to help them move forward and hold negligent parties accountable for their actions.
