According to a mySA news report, A 20-year-old woman was airlifted to University Hospital in critical condition early Thursday after a wrong-way crash. Authorities said a call came out for a wrong-way driver on Loop 1604 near Blanco Road around 2:30 a.m. Shortly afterward, the driver smashed into the woman’s vehicle.
The wrong way driver, a 20-year-old man, was transported to San Antonio Military Medical Center, while the victim was airlifted to University Hospital. San Antonio police traffic investigators are looking into the crash.
Accidents can be frustrating affairs, and it can only get worse if the accident was caused by some reckless driver who was driving the wrong way down the road. In the end, a wreck can be very costly for the victim. The state of Texas requires people to purchase a minimum amount of automotive insurance but what can you do if the insurance company won’t compensate you for the full amount of damages? This concern is something that you may want to speak with a professional regarding.
