San Antonio, TX (February 12, 2024) – Two women were transported to local hospitals with serious injuries following a collision that occurred early Sunday morning, February 11.
At around 2:24 a.m., two women were walking on the sidewalk in the 2600 block of North St. Mary’s Street. For unknown reasons, a Chevrolet Tahoe struck the two women. The Tahoe then collided with a parked vehicle and a fence before fleeing the scene. Both women were injured in the crash and rushed to local hospitals for emergency care. Authorities later located the vehicle with multiple alcoholic beverages inside. At this time, the incident is being investigated.
We hope both women hurt in this crash recover quickly.

Pedestrian accidents are reported every day in Texas. These incidents take the lives of hundreds of people annually while leaving more than 1000 people with injuries. Unfortunately, there are many instances where pedestrians are hurt in accidents that are entirely preventable. When drivers are reckless, they can cause severe harm to innocent pedestrians nearby. Due to the fact that pedestrians do not have protection during accidents, they are likely to suffer injuries that demand extensive medical treatment.

- Joint Injuries: Dislocations and damage to joints, such as the knees, hips, or shoulders, can occur upon impact.
