Authorities are still investigating a car accident on Interstate 35 last Thursday evening.
According to initial reports, the car accident took place at around 9 p.m. near Lanark. Two vehicles were traveling at an unsafe speed when one of the vehicles attempted to change lane resulting into a collision. The force of the impact caused the vehicles to spin.
Two people, identified only as a mother and her child, were injured as a result of the collision. They were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment of their injuries that were considered non-life threatening.
Local police officers were called into the scene to determine liability. The investigation is still underway.
Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of the injured victims. We are hoping and praying for a fast recovery of both parties. We strongly believe that the San Antonio Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
Car collisions are extremely prevalent in Texas. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, one person is getting injured in approximately two minutes. Unfortunately, despite the government’s aggressive efforts to educate drivers about safety, the cases of speeding, driving under the influence, and negligence are still on the rise. In fact, most of the common causes of accidents in the state are due to the driver’s lack of awareness and precaution.
Knowing the statistics helps us to be more aware of how our choices can affect other people’s lives. For instance, driving while under the influence of alcohol and illegal drugs dramatically increases your risk of being involved in a crash by roughly 16% and 24%, respectively. While these cases are extremely dangerous, these can be prevented by making the right decisions. So before hitting the road, know that car accidents leave scars and trauma that can be devastating for the victims. For this reason, it is important that you take all the necessary precautions to avoid it.
