A tragic accident involving one vehicle claimed the life of a 69-year-old woman on Kenton Crest, Sunday morning.
The fatality was identified as Kathleen Ann Deaver, 69.
According to initial reports, the incident happened at around 11:00 a.m. in the 5300 block of Kenton Crest, near Floyd Curl Drive and Huebner Road. As Deaver exited his pickup truck, the vehicle began to move backwards dragging her out onto the street. It came to a complete rest when the pickup crashed into another vehicle that was parked nearby.
Police said that her foot got pinned in a portion of the truck’s door. Deaver was immediately transported to University Hospital where she received immediate medical care. Unfortunately, she succumbed to her injuries shortly after, according to the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office.
No other details are available at this time.
The crash is still under investigation.
Our deepest sympathies go out to the families and friends of the deceased victim.
In the United States, Texas is considered among the top places in the country where pedestrians are more likely to be struck and killed by a motor vehicle. In fact, the state ranked 13th with the highest rate of pedestrian fatality in the country with a rate of 0.93 per 100,000 people.
In an attempt to curb the number of pedestrian-involved car accidents, the Texas Department of Transportation launched a campaign to improve pedestrian safety especially along and around the Austin area. The said campaign provides reflective bags to the homeless population and school children who were at risk of getting involved in a collision with an automobile.
