U.S. 281 accident kills 1 in San Antonio

Posted on July 10th, 2012 No Comments

The rain-covered roads proved to be hazardous yesterday in San Antonio, contributing to a deadly accident between a semi truck and an SUV on U.S. 281.

The accident took place when the driver of the SUV did not notice the semi truck come to a stop in front of him on the highway. Due to the slick condition of the roadway, he did not have enough time to stop, subsequently rear-ending the semi truck. A young passenger in his vehicle, estimated to be between 7 years old and 10 years old, was killed on impact.

Two other individuals were taken to a nearby hospital, one of them being a young girl. At the time of the accident, both of the young passengers were wearing seat belts. Traffic was confined to one lane on the highway for several hours while the accident was being assessed and investigated.

At this time, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the young victim.

“No Refusal” campaign in place for Fourth of July holiday

Posted on July 2nd, 2012 No Comments

Over the Fourth of July in Texas, suspected drunk drivers will not be allowed to refuse breathalyzers or blood tests if they are pulled over.

This “No Refusal” campaign has been instituted to decrease the amount of drunk driving accidents over the Fourth of July holiday. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the rate of alcohol-related car accident fatalities is the highest over this period. Last year in Texas, there were 308 deaths related to driving drunk on the Fourth of July.

Drivers who are pulled over this year will either have to consent to a breathalyzer test or a blood test. This added measure will be in place in order to deter individuals from getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. Officers across Texas have stated that the number of drunk driving fatalities has decreased in the years since the “No Refusal” program has been in place.

Please contact the reckless driving lawyers of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers by calling (210) 999-9999 today if you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident that was caused by a drunk or reckless driver.
