San Antonio, TX – 2 Injured In Car Collison On Hwy 16 S
San Antonio, TX (September 1, 2019) On the morning of August 31st, a car collision happened on Highway 16 South at around 7:00 a.m. A couple was driving to meet with their pastor before a missionary trip to Mexico when they were T-boned by a speeding vehicle.
When they hadn’t arrived at his home, their pastor, Manuel Hernandez, went out looking for them and found them injured. Emergency crews arrived and found that the woman hit her head on the windshield, and the man was sitting on the passenger side suffering from broken bones. Crews airlifted the woman to University Hospital while the man was rushed to a nearby hospital via ground ambulance. They have been identified as Pedro Villarreal and Maxminia Villareal.
Investigators are collecting more information regarding the crash.
We wish Pedro Villarreal and Maxminia Villareal a complete recovery.
Car Accidents in Texas
Studies show that one of the most common injuries that individuals sustain after being T-boned by another vehicle is a neck injury, which includes strains, sprains, whiplash, and fractures. Because the body suddenly jerks after being T-boned, it’s easy for the bone in the neck to snap out of place. T-bone accidents often result from drivers who fail to abide by traffic laws by running stop signs and red lights, along with speeding.
