In January, a car accident involving a San Antonio police officer left one woman with serious injuries. Five months later, the injured woman, a 41-year-old mother, succumbed to her injuries and passed away.
The accident occurred when the female police officer was attempting to render service in a case involving a stolen rig. She put on her flashing lights and signaled with her sirens, but she failed to yield to a car with right-of-way at the intersection of Loop 410 and Roosevelt Avenue. Her patrol unit struck the motor vehicle with full force, causing numerous injuries to the female driver of the damaged vehicle.
The family of the car accident victim is furious with the San Antonio police department. They believe that something more should have been done to reprimand the police officer, who has yet to be charged with any wrongdoing in the accident. A petition was started by the family, and they are looking for someone to take responsibility for the fatal crash.
Our thoughts are with this family as they grieve the loss of their loved one.
