San Antonio, TX (December 10, 2021) – A traffic-related incident reported in Bexar County on Monday evening left several people injured. At around 7:45 p.m., on December 6, the police, firefighters, and medical personnel responded to the scene of a crash on Farm to Market Road 2696.
Reports from authorities indicate that a collision between a red 2019 Chevrolet, a red 2012 Ford, and a blue 2017 Toyota occurred due on Farm to Market Road 2696 as a result of the Toyota driver following too closely.
A 39-year-old male, a 66-year-old female, and a 62-year-old male were all injured in the accident. The three victims were transported to area hospitals for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victims who were injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Texas
Every month, more than 17,100 people are left with injuries following motor vehicle accidents across our state. In many cases, victims have to go through extensive medical treatment and spend weeks off work to recover.
Some of the most common contributing factors to crashes in our state include:
- Speeding: We see many drivers go above the speed limits while traveling along our roadways. When drivers are traveling at high rates of speed, they are likely to lose control of their vehicles and have problems stopping in time to avoid a crash.
- Distraction: We see many accidents take place due to drivers who are using their cell phones. In other instances, drivers are distracted by food, radios, and even their passengers. Taking your attention off the road for a moment can have severe consequences.
- Impairment: Many people are involved in accidents due to drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Driving while impaired significantly increases the chances of drivers losing control of their vehicles and causing devastating crashes.
Although we can be careful to ensure the safety of others, there is no guarantee that other motorists are going to provide us with the same consideration. Instead, we see many people left with severe injuries that negatively impact their health and wellbeing.
