San Antonio, TX – 2 Injured In Major Accident On Ellana Claire Ct
San Antonio, TX (August 18, 2019) On the morning of August 18th, a major accident happened on Ellana Claire Court. A pickup truck was headed down the street when it collided into another pickup truck. The pickup truck also struck two pedestrians who were standing outside at a garage sale. The accident happened at around 10:00 a.m.
When the police, paramedics, and other crews responded to the crash, they found that a wheel had been knocked off one of the vehicles. They found one of the pedestrians suffering from injuries while an elderly pedestrian sustained life-threatening injuries. The paramedics rushed the victims to the closest hospital for treatment.
The authorities are working to figure out the cause of the accident. So far, they don’t believe the driver of the pickup truck was intoxicated.
Our thoughts are with both of the injured pedestrians and their families. We wish them both a full recovery.
Car and Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Thousands of pedestrians are hit by vehicles in the United States every year. Most of the time drivers are distracted when they strike pedestrians or other vehicles. Even a few seconds of taking one’s eyes off of the wheel is enough time to cause major damage and severely injure someone. All drivers are expected to follow traffic laws to ensure the safety of themselves and everyone around them. When they fail to do so, they risk their own lives as well as everyone else involved.
