Distracted Driving Leads to Serious Crash on West Beauregard


SAN ANGELO, TX - Two cars crashed on W. Beauregard Thursday afternoon slowing traffic for a while.  A Lincoln Continental and a Chevy passenger car crashed in the 400 block of West Beauregard, leaving one driver with minor injuries and resulting in a citation for the Chevy driver.

According to the San Angelo Police Department, the Lincoln Continental came to a stop in response to traffic conditions. 

Both vehicles were reportedly traveling eastbound at the time of the collision.
