In early October of 2021, two people died and two were injured as the result of a collision in Uvalde, Texas. The collision occurred when one truck made a left turn in front of another truck around 2:10 p.m. at the intersection of Highway 90 West and FM 2369. Lanes on the highway were closed for over two hours after the wreck while cleanup efforts concluded.
Unfortunately, serious vehicle collisions are all too common. According to the Texas Department of Transportation’s 2018 statistics (https://ftp.dot.state.tx.us/pub/txdot-info/trf/crash_statistics/2018/01.pdf), there were no deathless days on Texas roadways in 2018; there was 12,220 serious injury crashes in 2018, with 14,975 people sustaining a serious injury; 549 people were killed in head-on crashes, and 706 people were killed in crashes occurring in intersections or related to an intersection. 940 car accident deaths in 2018 (26% of the total number of deaths) involved a driver under the influence of alcohol.
