Emergency service crews in Comal and Bexar counties responded to numerous traffic accidents last week in what proved to be an unusually busy time. In New Braunfels, crews responded to several accidents, with the first occurring at 1:45 Thursday afternoon.
Following the accident that occurred in the 1600 block of Highway 46 near Independence Drive, one of the vehicles involved flipped upside down as a result of the collision. EMS transported the driver to University Medical Center in San Antonio with what were termed non life-threatening injuries. The debris from the accident was so severe that crews took over two hours to clear the road and allow normal traffic to resume.
There were two additional wrecks reported on Thursday afternoon. The first was a two car accident that occurred in the 1400 block of Huisache just before 2:30 pm. One driver was later sent to Christus New Braunfels with non life threatening injuries. The final incident occurred at the 3000 block of FM just before 5pm. One person was also transported to Christus New Braunfels with non life-threatening injuries. Crews worked the scene of the accident for half an hour before the roads were cleared.
In Bexar County, however, drivers were not so lucky. A total of nine people lost their lives on San Antonio roads by the end of the week. On Monday, four children and their mother lost their lives to a drunk driving accident, with the forth child being taken off of life support on Thursday afternoon. Also on Monday, a motorcyclist lost his life while speeding and weaving between traffic on I-35. Tuesday, a man lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a parked bulldozer. And on Thursday, a truck driver was killed on I-10.
