Victoria, TX – 3 Injured in Three-Vehicle Collision on Odem St
Victoria, TX (July 20, 2019) On the afternoon of July 19th, a three-vehicle collision happened at the intersection of Odem Street and Laurent Street. Three vehicles collided at the intersection when one of the vehicles failed to stop at a stop sign, which resulted in a chain-reaction accident. The accident happened at 3:00 p.m.
When emergency crews arrived at the intersection, they found three people injured at the scene and rushed them to the closest hospital for treatment. Fortunately, none of them are reportedly suffering life-threatening injuries.
Authorities are still working to figure out which vehicle ran the red light and who will be held responsible for causing the chain-reaction collision.
We wish all three injured victims a quick recovery.
Car Accidents in Texas
In 2017, studies show that one person sustained injuries every two minutes and four seconds because of car collisions throughout Texas. Most car accidents occur when drivers are distracted on the road, especially drivers that fail to stop at stop signs. Distractions vary, but often always include using a cell phone, eating, applying makeup, conversing with passengers, and more. Other reasons drivers may fail to stop at stop signs is because they’re under the influence or asleep at the wheel.
