Houston, TX (March 11, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in the Houston area left several people injured, according to reports. At around 10:40 p.m., on March 9, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed at the scene of an accident on Southwest Freeway.
Reports show that they believe the driver of a Toyota pickup truck was intoxicated while fleeing the scene of a previous crash. As a result, the Toyota collided with a Chevrolet Tahoe on Southwest Freeway near South Gessner Road.
The impact of the crash caused the Tahoe to flip over and land on its side, trapping two people inside.
A woman, her child, and two other unidentified victims were transported to area hospitals for medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victims who were injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Texas
Every year, more than 200,000 people are involved in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Texas. These incidents send tens of thousands of people to area hospitals where they undergo emergency medical treatment for serious injuries. Roughly 20% of these crashes involve drivers who are under the influence of alcohol. Although there are strict laws in place to prevent people from entering the roadway while impaired, we continue to see a significant number of people injured or killed in crashes that these drivers cause.
When victims suffer spinal cord injuries, back injuries, and traumatic brain injuries, they often require emergency surgery and long-term care. These and other serious injuries can be incredibly debilitating. To make matters even worse, many people never fully recover. Instead, they are left with permanently disabling conditions.
