KXAN reports on a serious collision on Farm to Market 969 that involved three vehicles. Emergency responders were administering CPR to one person en route to UMC Brackenridge.
According to authorities, the crash occurred around 6 a.m. Reporters at the scene remarked that the incident appeared to have been a T-bone accident.
Although the cause of the collision is still under investigation, it is likely that driver error played a role. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 94 percent of all traffic crashes stem from driver errors.

How to Avoid Early-Morning Car Accidents
If you are like millions of other Americans and you have an early-morning commute to work, there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of crashing. Read on to learn three of those strategies:
- Get Plenty of Sleep
Unfortunately, even if you get plenty of sleep, you will most likely share the road with a drowsy driver at some point. You can reduce your risk by keeping your distance from motorists who show one or more of the following signs of fatigue:
- Drifting onto the shoulder;
- Almost hitting the curb or another object in the road;
- Stopping far before or after a stop line;
- Forgetting to use the turn signal; or
- Abnormal braking patterns.
- Do Not Rush to Work
- Do Not Eat Breakfast behind the Wheel
