Posted on Tuesday, July 30th, 2019 at 10:57 am
A Sunday evening crash between two cars resulted in injuries on Airline Drive in the Greenspoint area, according to local authorities.
Police said that the incident happened at around 8:30 p.m. near Dyna Drive. A Chevrolet Taho was traveling along the road when, for reasons that had not yet been determined, it collided with a Dodge Durango. Following the crash, the drivers of the involved vehicles got into an argument which prompted the SUV driver to walk off.
Among the six occupants in the Tahoe, only a seven-year-old boy sustained injuries. He was immediately taken to Texas Chidlren’s hospital for treatment. His condition remains unknown at this time.
The SUV driver was later located a few blocks away from the scene of the collision. He was taken into custody for possible DUI and failure to stop and render aid.
No one else was injured.
Our deepest sympathies to the victim of this unfortunate event. We strongly believe that police will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
Injuries caused by vehicle collisions can vary from crash to crash. Some injuries may heal within a span of days while others could paralyze a victim’s body for a month. The most commonly known car accident injuries include neck and chest and head and back injuries. Broken and ligament damages are also quite common.
Being a victim of a collision is an overwhelming experience. If you are a passenger in a car involved in crash, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention for yourself and anyone who needs it. After this, you’ll want to alert your insurance provider regarding damages or injuries you sustained from the collision. To submit a claim, you would need to gather documents supporting your claim. These may include a video of the scene or a photograph of the damages to the vehicles, police reports stating the facts of the accident, and medical records indicating the severity of your injury, to name a few.
