San Antonio, TX (3/28/2021) – A man was killed in a fatal wreck while three others were sent to the hospital Wednesday evening after a fatal T-bone collision.
The wreck happened on Rigsby Avenue when a vehicle was T-boned by a silver car. Antonio Arismendez Martinez, 80, was driving out of a side street near Covington and Rigsby when the collision happened. At one point the silver car was one fire.
Martinez died on the scene.
Three of the four occupants in the silver car were taken to the hospital. One victim was a 2-year-old who remains in critical condition.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
T-bone car accidents, also known as side-impact collisions, can cause drivers and passengers to suffer severe injuries.
These accidents are unique because unlike other types of collision, such as rear-end or head-on collisions, victims of t-bone collisions are only separated from the colliding vehicle by a thin door and window. The window can shatter on impact, showering the victim in tiny shards of glass as he or she comes into contact with the colliding vehicle’s hood.
