San Angelo—Lunchtime Crash at Sherwood Way Intersection
Posted on Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019 at 5:23 am
At least two people were injured following a car accident at the intersection of Sherwood Way and Farm to Market Road 2288 last January 21.
Just after 12:00 p.m., a crash was reported at the dangerous San Angelo intersection near Sherwood. According to initial reports, a 2015 Dodge Ram was traveling along the westbound lanes when it collided with a 2014 Lincoln sedan. Based on the preliminary investigation, a vehicle behind the Dodge honked its horn which prompted the driver to swerve quickly to the left.
The force of impact left two of five passengers in the Lincoln four-door sedan with injuries. They were rushed to a hospital via ambulance. Their conditions were not immediately made available. Local officers have identified one of the victims as an 11-year-old girl.
The driver of the Dodge Ram will be cited for making an unsafe lane change. His identification has not been disclosed at the moment.
Investigation is still underway.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the friends and families of the injured victims, especially for the family of the 11-year-old girl. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the San Angelo Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
In Texas, car collisions happen on a regular basis. Most of the time, these events result in injuries and fatalities. Victims involved in crashes are left to deal with life-threatening injuries, damages to property, and worse—emotional trauma. While accidents are fortuitous events that cannot be foreseen, they can be prevented if only drivers had simply put their complete attention on the road and taken their responsibility as drivers more seriously. This is why, despite conscious efforts by government to combat the increasing number of fatalities and injuries every year, crashes due to negligence is still on the rise.
