Wrong-Way Collision on Vignes Street Sends 2 to Hospital
San Antonio, TX (July 25, 2023) – At around 1:45 a.m. on Tuesday, a male driver and a female passenger were injured in a W Malone Avenue collision.
The traffic accident took place near the intersection with and Vignes Street east of Interstate 35.
Investigating officers said the pair were riding an Infiniti at a high rate of speed and were traveling the wrong way when the driver lost control.
As a result, the vehicle left the roadway and the driver over-corrected. It drove across two lanes into a chain link fence and tree near an embankment. The driver was then ejected from the vehicle.
The vehicle partially landed in the backyard of a home and damaged a chicken coop.
Moreover, the responding medical team rushed the male driver by ambulance to Brooke Army Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. The female passenger was transported to a hospital for an allergic reaction.
Neighbors said the woman tried to run away but the authorities found her hiding in an ant bed. The ants got to her and triggered the allergic reaction.
The female resident said that while her chicken coop was damaged, all her chickens appeared to be fine.
Meanwhile, SAPD did not say what, if any charges are to be filed concerning the collision on Vignes Street.
Follow All Driving Rules
When driving, it is important to follow all driving laws and the conditions of the road. If you see any vehicle or driver that looks dangerous, keep your distance. If you see a vehicle weaving in and out of the lanes, following too closely, or traveling at a higher rate of speed, move over a few lanes and get out of their way.
Drive defensively to ensure the safety of surrounding vehicles, drivers, and pedestrians.
This is a powerful reminder to always pay close attention to drivers around you. Constantly keep a considerable distance from others just in case the harm is near.
