San Antonio, TX (March 4, 2022) – A multi-vehicle accident reported on Monday in the San Antonio area left one person injured. Just before 10 a.m., on February 28, the San Antonio Police Department responded to the scene of a crash on Interstate 10.
Reports from the SAPD show that a maroon 1997 Ford was following too closely to the vehicle ahead. As a result, it crashed into the rear of a black 2008 Mazda. The Mazda then crashed into the rear of a gray 2017 Hyundai.
The driver of the Mazda, a 25-year-old male, sustained injuries in the accident. The man was transported to a local hospital for medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Texas
The state of Texas is no stranger to motor vehicle accidents. In fact, one accident happens roughly every 2.5 minutes that ends in injuries. These incidents add up to more than 205,000 people left with injuries each year. Although many crashes result in minor injuries for those involved, a significant number of parties sustain severe injuries that require emergency 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.
