At approximately 11:40 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, 2019, a mother and her child were injured in a car crash that occurred in San Antonio, Texas.
According to initial reports, the mother was driving a car on Nacogdoches Road when all of a sudden a black pickup truck pulled out in front of her. She tried to swerve out of the way, but she lost control of the car, and as a result, she hit a pole on the side of the road.
The mother and her 3-year-old child were extracted from the vehicle using the Jaws of Life, and they were brought to the University Hospital.
The driver of the black pickup fled away from the scene.
Investigation is still ongoing for this accident, and the police are still actively searching for the other driver.
It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the victims in this accident. Alas, they are not the only ones who are affected by a car accident. Car accidents are a problem in this day and age, and yet, they still continue to happen on a regular basis. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.
A particular kind of vehicular accident that is quite common and deadly is a hit-and-run. According to a study done by roadside-assistance giant AAA, there were 2,049 hit-and-run deaths that occurred in 2016. This number is the highest annual total on record, and in the decade leading up to that number, 682,000 hit-and-run crashes happened each year.
