Young Couple Struck By Runaway Vehicle
No one ever wants to be the victim of an auto accident. Not surprisingly, being in an accident as a pedestrian that was struck by a runaway vehicle can be even more problematic.
This is exactly what happened at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin. A crowd of people was standing outside of a concert when several were struck by a car. Among those who were injured was a young couple from Fort Worth who were attending the festival Deandre Tatum, 18, and Curtisha Davis, 17, both are students at Trimble Tech High School.
Deandre Tatum was injured so badly in the accident that he has been placed in an induced coma, while Curtisha Davis has been hospitalized after breaking both her neck and an arm. Officials are uncertain just how long either of them will stay in the hospital.
Every day that someone spends in a hospital means that by the time the medical bill is finally tallied, the price will likely be very high. Add to the expense of medical care, the loss of income as well.
