San Antonio, TX (October 25, 2021) – A traffic-related incident reported in the San Antonio area sent two people to local hospitals with injuries. At around 10 a.m., on October 20, the San Antonio Police Department, firefighters, and medical personnel were all notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 37.
Reports from the police show that the driver of a silver 2003 Chevrolet was following too closely while traveling in the area of Interstate and Topeka Boulevard. As a result, the vehicle became involved in an accident with a gray 2016 Ford, a gray 2018 Toyota, and an unknown fourth vehicle.
The driver of the Ford, a 31-year-old female, and the driver of the 2018 Toyota, a 29-year-old female, were both injured. The two victims were transported to a local hospital for further 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
Crashes throughout the state of Texas leave more than 15,000 people with serious injuries each year. People harmed in accidents are often rushed to area hospitals where they have to go through extensive medical care and spend weeks off work to recover. Although there are many things we can do to protect others while sharing the roads, there is nothing that we can do to prevent others from engaging in actions that endanger us.
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.
