Austin, TX – 5 Injured in 4-Car Crash on E Riverside Dr & E Ben White Blvd
Austin, TX (May 26, 2019) On the morning of May 26th, a multi-vehicle accident happened at the intersection of East Riverside Drive and East Ben White Boulevard. Four vehicles collided into each other at around 8:00 a.m. for unknown reasons.
When emergency crews arrived at the intersection to help, they found at least five people injured as a result of the accident. They immediately rushed all five victims to St. David’s South Medical Center for treatment. One of the injured victims sustained life-threatening injuries, while the remaining four had potentially life-threatening injuries.
Crews are working to figure out what led up to the dangerous accident.
Our thoughts are with the five injured accident victims and their families at this time. We hope for a full recovery for all involved.
Vehicle Accidents in Austin
Sadly, over 14,000 car accidents occurred in Austin in 2015. Whenever two or more vehicles collide, the cause is often distracted driving, especially if the accident happens early in the morning. Drivers are usually rushing to work, to appointments, or to drop their children off at school. When drivers are in a rush, sometimes they’re also multi-tasking when they should be completely focused on the road. Sometimes they’re driving above the speed limit while they’re trying to multi-task, which puts them at an even higher risk of potentially causing a serious accident.
At Benton Law Firm, we understand that accidents happen, but we strongly believe that all drivers must abide by their legal duty of being completely alert on the road.
