Violent crash in San Antonio rips a car in half

Posted on April 17th, 2013 No Comments

A violent car crash ripped a car in half after it slammed into two utility poles on the Northeast Side, early in the morning of Thursday, March 14.

Reports coming from the San Antonio Police Department stated that a speeding car lost control at the 12000 block of Perrin Beitel after a driver did not decrease his speed when coming around a corner. The car reportedly jumped off the curb and was separated into two pieces after it slammed into two utility poles. The driver sustained critical injuries after the crash and was immediately taken to University Hospital.

Police said no one else was in the car aside from the driver. It is also not known whether alcohol was involved or not.

Fortunately, no other cars or people were involved in this accident; however, there are far too many every day in which reckless drivers, such as this one, cause devastating harm to innocent parties. If this has happened to you, callĀ (210) 999-9999 to find out how you may be able to obtain financial compensation. A lawyer from the Chris Mayo Law Firm can evaluate your situation and help you take the next steps.

Senate strengthens punishment for fleeing an accident

Posted on April 2nd, 2013 No Comments

A measure to strengthen punishment for leaving the scene of an accident that caused injury was unanimously passed in the Texas Senate today.

Under Senate Bill 275, introduced by Austin Democratic Sen. Kirk Watson, fleeing the accident scene is now considered a second degree felony, which is the same as intoxication manslaughter. According to Watson, some drunk drivers involved in accidents flee to avoid tougher punishments. Before the bill was passed, fleeing the scene of the accident was only a third degree felony.

If the bill passes the House for consideration, fleeing an accident that caused an injury could result in up to 20 years of imprisonment and a fine of $10,000.

Being involved in a hit and run accident can cause serious physical injuries and losses to innocent people. Call (210) 999-9999 if you’ve been injured in such an accident and believe you may be owed financial compensation. Our lawyers at the Chris Mayo Law Firm may be able to help you.
