At least eight people were rushed to the hospital when three vehicles crashed into each other on North Lamar Boulevard in Central Austin Friday afternoon.
According to Austin-Travis County EMS (ATCEMS), ATCEMS and Austin Fire crews were dispatched at the 4600 block of North Lamar Boulevard after they received an alert reporting a crash just before 4:00 p.m. Responding officers have yet to release more details about the incident but it was confirmed that one person was pinned inside the wreckage and had to be extricated by local firefighters. At least eight injured victims were transported to area hospitals with varying injuries. The condition of each patient was not immediately disclosed.
The Austin Police Department arrived at the scene to gather more information about the collision. The northbound lane of Lamar was temporarily closed while crews responded to the crash but it has since reopened.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the friends and families of the injured victims. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the Austin Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
Injuries caused by vehicle collisions can vary from crash to crash. Some injuries may heal within a span of days while others could paralyze a victim’s body for a month. The most commonly known car accident injuries include neck and chest and head and back injuries. Broken and ligament damages are also quite common.
Sometimes, a car accident can cause serious injuries to multiple parties—and filing a claim can get complicated. To make sure your claim is successful, you need to gather supporting evidence and documents that can back up your claim. It could be a detailed account of the accident you are involved in or documents indicating the extent of injuries you sustained. These may include a video or photograph of the scene, police reports, and medical records, to name a few.
