San Antonio, TX (October 25, 2021) – A young man was hospitalized with serious injuries following a skateboarding accident in downtown San Antonio late Sunday evening. At around 10:15 p.m., on October 24, the police in San Antonio were called to the site of a crash on South Presa Street.
Reports from authorities show that a man in his 20s was riding a skateboard across train tracks located in the area of South Presa Street and Conrad Street. For unknown reasons, the man was struck by a train as it passed through the area.
The man sustained serious injuries after being dragged approximately 50-yards. He suffered the loss of a leg and a severe head injury. He was rushed to Brooke Army Medical Center where he was admitted in critical condition.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the man who was injured in this accident. We hope for his full recovery.
Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
More than 550 people are injured in motor vehicle accidents across our state every day. These crashes add up to hundreds of thousands of victims forced into area hospitals for the treatment of injuries. Thousands of people who are seriously injured in accidents are not traveling inside vehicles at all. Instead, innocent victims are struck by passing vehicles. Pedestrians are more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries due to the fact that they are not protected while traveling. Severe injuries like traumatic brain injuries, compound fractures, and internal organ damage can be incredibly debilitating. To make matters even worse, many people never fully recover. Instead, they are left with permanently disabling conditions.
The majority of pedestrian accidents in our state take place during the evening hours. Many drivers find it challenging to see people walking in dark and poorly lit areas.
Having to take time off work, go through months of rehabilitation, and deal with lifelong consequences can drastically impact your quality of life.
