Within a week, Texas saw multiple injuries as there was at least one car crash where three people got hurt, and an elderly man also got attacked by pitbulls while he was mowing his lawn. The Dallas Morning news reported stories about both the crash and the dog attack. The car crash that injured three people took place when a car drove the wrong way on an Airport Freeway flyover ramp and hit a pickup truck. According to Irving police, the school security vehicle was headed west when it was hit head-on by the car going wrong way on the one-lane ramp. Both drivers and a passenger in the wrong-way vehicle were taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital, and their injuries were thought to be life-threatening, said police spokesman John Argumaniz. The other accident, two dogs attacking an elderly man took place in Oak Cliff. Leslie Wilson, 73, was mowing the grass in an alley between two houses when he got attacked by his neighbor’s two pit bulls. The dogs bit Wilson’s arms, legs, face, and head. Wilson got away when a neighbor came to his rescue and helped him escape. He was taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center, and his condition is unknown. The dogs were taken into custody of Dallas Animal Control. Their fate is also unclear. In both of these cases there are clear victims, who got injured.
