On Friday, a woman driving the wrong way on I-10 caused a three-car accident.

The accident occurred on the lower level of the eastbound lanes on I-10 near North Brazos and Culebra Streets.  Police stated that the woman driving westbound in the eastbound lanes had just been released from the hospital and said she was flustered and unaware of what happened.  She entered the freeway in downtown near UTSA.

The 59 year old driver hit two cars.  The first car was a pickup truck, and no injuries were suffered.  The second car was a vehicle with a driver and a child.  The driver, child, and the 59 year old woman all went to the hospital to be treated for injuries.

Cell phone ban urged for drivers across the country

Posted on December 15th, 2011 No Comments

On Tuesday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Board released a proposal for a nationwide ban on all cell phone use  while driving.

This proposal came after a tragic car accident in August 2010 in Gray Summit, MO that left two dead and injured 38 others.  The driver of the pickup truck that caused the accident was a 19 year old who sent 11 text messages in 11 minutes before the incident.

According to Chairwoman Deborah A.P. Hersman of the NHTSB, “More than 3,000 people lost their lives last year in distraction-related accidents…no call, no text, no update, is worth a human life.”

San Antonio, in addition to Austin, El Paso, and Arlington, banned texting while driving in October of 2010.  Though the NHTSB cannot actually pass any laws banning cell phone use, this proposal sends a very clear and strong message to legislatures that are responsible for changing such laws.

San Antonio bus driver crashes into parked SUV

Posted on August 31st, 2011 No Comments

A bus carrying five passengers crashed into a parked SUV on Tuesday night, injuring two.

According to a San Antonio police detective, the VIA Metropolitan Transit bus was traveling north on Flores Street around 9:45 pm when it crashed into a parked GMC Suburban. The collision caused the Suburban to slam into a pole before being dragged into a grassy area.

Out of the five passengers on the bus, two were taken to Metropolitan Methodist Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. A woman passenger hit her mouth against a pole in the bus, and a man bruised his chest when he hit a support post during the crash. The driver did not sustain any injuries.

The bus driver did not appear drowsy or intoxicated, and it is believed that the accidental crash occurred due to the dark color of the vehicle and bad lighting conditions.
