SAN ANTONIO -- Six family members are struggling to get back on their feet after they were seriously hurt in a high speed car crash Thursday evening.
Albert Landeros was driving his 16-year-old son Carlos and four of their cousins to dinner that evening when a man driving a Lincoln Town Car ran a stop sign at IH 35 and N. Pine and crashed into their Tahoe. Carlos remains in University Hospital, waiting for surgery on his broken pelvis. He also suffered a lacerated liver.
"He was playing football at Brackenridge High School and now he's not even certain about that. He told me 'You know what Dad, I don't even know if I can play football anymore.' I said, 'son, take it one day at a time and see what happens,'" Landeros said.
Their 23-year-old cousin Joe Vasquez remains hospitalized at San Antonio Military Medical Center with broken bones in his feet, Landeros said.
Landeros said it's a "rough time" for the family members while medical bills are piling up, but they're grateful everyone will be okay.
"We're happy there's no loss of life. If you looked at the vehicle, you'd probably tell me otherwise," he said.
The man who allegedly caused the accident could be facing charges, according to police.
