Bexar County, TX (June 29, 2019) On the 29th of June, a head-on collision occurred on FM 1560. A white car was traveling on the road when it veered into the opposite lane and sideswiped an oncoming Acura that contained a family of four.
When the paramedics arrived, they found the two men in the white car with serious injuries. The driver ended up with fatal injuries. The passenger was taken to the hospital for treatment. Three of the occupants in the Acura were not harmed in the crash. However, a 3-year-old sustained critical injuries as a result of the crash and was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Authorities are currently investigating the accident to determine what caused the vehicle to veer into the opposite lane.
Our thoughts are with the deceased driver’s family at this time. We also wish both injured victims a full recovery.
Head-On Collisions in Texas
In 2015, approximately 587 people sustained fatal injuries in head-on collisions throughout Texas. The lead cause of most of these collisions is usually drunk driving, especially if the accident happens in the middle of the night. The reason these accidents are more dangerous than other types of accidents is because when two vehicles collide head-on, the force is twice as impactful than other types of accidents. Therefore, more people end up sustaining catastrophic or fatal injuries.
