Austin, TX (June 14, 2021) - An on-duty police officer from the city of Austin was injured during a car accident in the southeast part of the city on Sunday, July 13th.
Officials stated that at about 12:00 a.m. a crash took place between an on-duty officer in a squad car and a pick-up truck. The two vehicles collided with one another on South Pleasant Valley Road in the area of Creek Bend Drive.
Both drivers sustained non-critical injuries during the impact.
Investigators said it appeared as though the truck ran into a trash can near a Capital Metro stop, as well as a nearby fence. The truck was badly damaged on its back end and the APD patrol car sustained damage to its front end.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Vehicle Collisions in Austin
Victims injured in car crashes are usually forced to deal with and an array of consequences. Although we like to think that everyone comes out of vehicle accidents unharmed, this is far from the truth. As a matter of fact, more than 17,000 people are hospitalized with injuries from car accidents every year in the state of Texas.
In a majority of cases, victims endure serious injuries such as fractured and broken bones in spinal cord injuries that leave them in overwhelming pain. As if dealing with pain were not enough, thousands of victims will require extensive medical treatment for their injuries. In most instances of critical injuries, victims are required to spend extensive time in area hospitals and go through therapy for months. The mental, emotional, and physical consequences are only half the battle.
All too often, victims are forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on the medical care they need for their injuries. For this reason, it is imperative that victims who are injured in car accidents caused by the negligent behavior of someone else, reach out to a car accident attorney in Houston as soon as possible. When victims are injured in collisions, through no fault of their own, they may be entitled to compensation to help alleviate the cost of medical care and to offset the lost wages that they endure. Quite often, victims find it extremely advantageous to work with a reputable legal team after being injured in an accident.
