Austin, TX (August 1, 2020) – Shortly after 6:40 p.m., on July 31, the Austin-Travis County EMS responded to the scene of a crash on Interstate 35.
Reports provided by the ATCEMS show that several vehicles collided on the northbound side of Interstate Highway 35 for unknown reasons. The crash resulted in a closure near 51st Street as crews worked to clear the scene of the accident.
Two people involved in the crash were injured. One victim was rushed to Dell Seton Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries. A second victim was rushed to the same hospital for treatment of critical life-threatening injuries. At this time, the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Texas
Rear-end collisions occur when the front-end of one vehicle crashes into the rear-end of a second vehicle. These accidents are commonly caused by distracted drivers. T-bone collisions are extremely common at intersections. These accidents occur when the front-end of one vehicle collides with the side of a second vehicle in a “T” shaped manner. Sideswipe collisions occur when the sides of two vehicles collide. These accidents commonly occur when one or both drivers drift into parallel lanes or switch lanes without looking. Chain-reaction collisions occur when two or more vehicles collide along the road. These accidents often result in extensive delays and debilitating injuries. Single-vehicle accidents are extremely common as well and can occur for a variety of reasons. The circumstances surrounding an auto accident can have a detrimental impact on victims and their families. Unfortunately, our state is no stranger to collisions.
Motor vehicle accidents throughout Texas leave nearly 20,000 victims with devastating injuries each year. Accidents involving multiple vehicles are often more devastating due to the number of victims involved. Many victims are forced into area hospitals where they have to go through extensive medical treatment for their injuries. In numerous cases, victims are left permanently impaired due to their injuries. Not only are many victims forced to deal with the overwhelming pain and suffering from their injuries, but victims and their families are forced to endure towering medical costs, lost wages, and a variety of other devastating financial burdens. When people suffer debilitating injuries in accidents, due to the negligence of other drivers, it is imperative that they reach out to a car accident attorney in Texas as soon as possible to protect their legal rights.
