Austin Home Explosion
AUSTIN (October 30, 2018)– Saturday afternoon in Southeast Austin a house explosion seriously injured two people.

The accident occurred on Bendridge Trail near East William Cannon around 1:30 p.m. At the time of the explosion, there was a man in his 50s and a woman in her 40s that made it out the home with severe burns.

One was taken to Dell Seton Medical Center and the other was transported to St. David’s South Austin Medical Center. Both are expected to survive.

According to the Austin Fire Department, the house explosion was caused by a backed-up gas line. The blast caused the roof to collapse, flying debris, and the home crumbled down to the ground. In addition, a neighboring house suffered significant damage, along with five other homes and several vehicles. It is estimated that total damages will exceed $750,000.

If you or a loved one were injured in a gas explosion, it is important to contact a legal expert to help you evaluate your options. Call (713) 987-7111 or to discuss your personal injury case.
