San Angelo— Woman Hospitalized Following a Car Accident on South Randolph Street

Posted on Thursday, February 28th, 2019 at 4:37 am    

Last Friday, a fatal collision involving multiple vehicles took place on South Randolph Street, a local news source says.

According to initial reports, a red Dodge Journey sports utility vehicle was heading south on Randolph Street when it ran a red light at the intersection. The Dodge then crashed into a Toyota that was traveling on the opposite direction on Avenue V. The impact of the crash left the Toyota driver, identified only as an elderly woman, with serious injuries. She was then transported to a hospital via ambulance for treatment. Her identification was not released.

Based on a preliminary investigation, the Dodge driver was distracted by his dog prompting him to enter the intersection on a red light. He will be cited for running a stop sign and driving with an invalid license.

The investigation is ongoing.

It is unfortunate to hear of this accident that has left a few individuals injured, particularly that young girl who is still in critical condition as of right now. However, it is even more unfortunate to realize that vehicular accidents like this are common in this day and age. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. That is roughly about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone.

Speeding, driving while distracted, and driving under the influence of alcohol are three most common causes of car accidents, and from Colchael’s testimony, it can be assumed that Lugo fits the third cause.
