San Antonio, TX – 2 Women Injured in Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident on Roosevelt Ave
San Antonio, TX (August 10, 2019) On the morning of August 10th, a hit-and-run pedestrian accident happened at the parking lot of Mustang Salley’s Bar on Roosevelt Avenue. Two women were hit by a dark-colored SUV as it was leaving the parking lot. The reports reveal the driver intentionally struck the two women outside of the bar. The driver then fled the scene without stopping.
When the paramedics and other emergency personnel arrived, they found one of the women suffering from a broken ankle and took her to Downtown Baptist Hospital for treatment. The other woman sustained life-threatening injuries and was rushed to San Antonio Military Medical Center for immediate care.
The police are currently searching for the driver responsible for striking the two women.
Our thoughts are with both of the injured women and we hope they’re able to recovery successfully.
Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident
The reason over 700,000 hit-and-run accidents occur in the United States annually is because of drivers that fear being caught for their actions. Hit-and-run accidents usually occur at night when it’s harder to see and less witnesses around. Whenever drivers are leaving a bar and initially strike someone, they’re under the influence of alcohol, which results in reckless driving.
