(original posted 5/7/15)
LA VERNIA -- Police are investigating a head-on crash that sent seven injured people to area hospitals May 7. Officials at the scene did not release the identities of the victims.

According to Officer Donald Keil of the La Vernia Police Department, preliminary indications are that at approximately 4:20 p.m., a Chevrolet Suburban being driven northbound on U.S. 87 by a La Vernia man crossed the centerline and collided with a Ford E-350 van that was traveling southbound.

The Suburban’s driver and his son -- whom Keil said is believed to be 5 years old -- were flown via AirLife helicopter to University Hospital in San Antonio. Of the five men in the van, two were flown to University Hospital in a second AirLife helicopter, two were transported via ambulance to Mission Trails Baptist Hospital in San Antonio, and police did not have information as to where the fifth man was transported.

Rabble understands; I think. I will say the firefighters at LVVFD used to be the best in the county. I'm not sure if that's true anymore. Keep paying those helicopter rides so another award can go to LVEMS!
