San Antonio, TX (January 5, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in the San Antonio area ended in injuries. Just after 10 a.m., on January 4, the San Antonio Police Department was requested on-site at a crash on Avenue L.
Reports show that a vehicle ran a red light at the intersection of East Avenue L and Oakes Street during the morning hours. As a result, the vehicle crashed into a second vehicle.
Two people involved in the crash were injured. One victim was transported to Shannon Medical Center for care while the second victim was transported to an unknown area hospital.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the two victims who were injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Texas
Nearly every minute, an automobile accident is reported somewhere in the state of Texas. These accidents often cause major disruptions in traffic and leave victims with painful injuries. In fact, more than 200,000 people sustain broken bones, internal organ damage, and various other injuries in traffic-related incidents across our state each 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.
Regrettably, motor vehicle accidents are far too common in our state. In fact, more than 205,000 people are injured in accidents involving cars, trucks, and SUVs every year across Texas. Although many victims suffer minor injuries that cause no major disruptions in their lives, tens of thousands of people are forced into area hospitals and have to spend weeks off work to recover.
