Pedestrian Accidents in San Antonio
Sadly, at least one person loses their life weekly in a pedestrian accident in San Antonio. It’s not uncommon for drivers to strike pedestrians late at night on weekends, which is the time most people are leaving parties, clubs, lounges, bars, and other social gatherings. Usually, drivers are under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol after leaving these events, which makes them more likely to accidentally hit and seriously harm a pedestrian.
