San Antonio, TX (November 11, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident reported on Monday evening ended in injuries, according to local law enforcement. Just after 4:30 p.m., on November 8, emergency crews received the request for assistance on-site at a crash on O’Connor Road.
Reports from local authorities show that the 18-year-old female driver of a silver 2017 Hyundai became distracted while traveling in the area of 13810 O’Connor Road. As a result, her vehicle struck a silver 2006 Mercedes-Benz.
The driver of the Mercedes, a 45-year-old male, was transported to a local hospital for the treatment of injuries.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victim 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. Some of the most common injuries sustained by serious crash victims include:
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
- Soft tissue (neck) injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Burn injuries
- Head injuries
These and other injuries often require immediate medical attention. In some cases, victims have to go through long-term 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.
