A non-injury accident occurred at 7:55 a.m. today at West Park Avenue and Maverick Street involving a student and a mother who had just dropped her son off at this college north of Oppenheimer Academic Center.
The student, a business management major who would not give her full name, said she was at the stop sign at Maverick and turned left on West Park as Isela Vazquez exited Lot 21 and turned right on West Park.
The collision resulted in minor damage to both vehicles.
“Right before the accident, I was saying a prayer to God, thanking him for my safe arrival to school,” the student said.
The student said she had an 8 a.m. class. “I’m glad they are showing a film in the class,” she said of the delay the accident caused.
Alamo Colleges police arrived at about 8:17 a.m.
Officer M.D. Long said the San Antonio Police Department was called because the accident occurred on city property.
SAPD Officer M. Burts arrived at 8:40 a.m., 35 minutes after Alamo Colleges police.
A non-injury accident is considered one of the lowest priority calls for San Antonio Police, Long said.
Burts said his department does not file accident reports for minor damage. Instead, he gave the two drivers crash reports to fill out with instructions to submit by them by mail.
“I’m still at peace; the vehicles are still driveable,” the student said.
