San Antonio, TX (November 9, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident reported early Sunday morning ended in injuries, according to local law enforcement. Just before 1 a.m., on November 7, emergency crews were notified that a crash took place on West Avenue.

Reports from local authorities show that a woman was traveling in the 2700 block of West Avenue on the Northwest Side of San Antonio during the morning hours. As the vehicle neared the area of Interstate 10, it became involved in an accident with an impaired driver.

The 21-year-old woman sustained serious injuries as a result of the accident. She was transported to a local hospital for care.

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

Drunk or impaired drivers are a major factor in nearly one-quarter of all accidents across our state. When drivers are impaired, they are unable to accurately control their vehicles. As a result, they are more likely to run red lights, pass stop signs, and crash into other vehicles sharing the road.

Although no two accidents are alike, there are many cases where victims suffer similar injuries that require extensive medical care. Some of the most common injuries sustained by serious crash victims include:

  • Burn injuries
  •  Back injuries
  • Broken bones
  •    Soft tissue (neck) injuries
  •   Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

Not only are injuries incredibly painful and debilitating, but they are often costly to treat. When people are hurt in motor vehicle accidents, due to the negligence of others, they often have legal options available to help them move forward. When victims are hurt in collisions, they should seek the assistance of a car accident lawyer in San Antonio as soon as possible. In some cases, victims may have legal options available to help them move forward and hold negligent parties accountable for their actions.
