Boy in Critical Condition Following Texas 16 Rear-end Collision

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 18-Dec-2012

A car accident in San Antonio, involving two vehicles, one of which was stopped for a school bus, left a young boy in critical condition on Tuesday morning on Texas 16, officials said.

Police have not yet released the name of the 7-year-old boy or the two other victims injured in the San Antonio collision. All three victims were transported to University Hospital for the treatment of injuries they endured in the auto accident in Bexar County.

According to a report published by MySA, the 7-year-old was a passenger in an Audi sedan, driven by his father. Another young child was also a passenger in that vehicle.

The Audi was rear-ended by another vehicle when the driver stopped for a school bus stopped ahead of it. The bus had activated its lights, police said.

The vehicle that struck the Audi sedan was identified as a Chevrolet HHR and was driven by a 69-year-old woman.

Officials are still investigating the scene of the accident.

Rear-end collisions can sometimes be tied to distracted driving. It can be tempting for busy drivers to take their eyes off the road for the mere seconds required to glance at a text, email or social media status. But despite the temptation drivers may have to take their hands off the wheel and their eyes off the road for even the shortest amount of time, distracted driving can be deadly, reducing the ability of drivers to reaction adequately to stopping vehicles ahead.
