Remembering those who have died in traffic crashes in San Antonio.
“The City and many of our community members are coming together to remember those loved ones who have tragically lost their lives in a traffic-related crash” the City’s April Luna told KTSA News, describing what will be happening Downtown Sunday Morning.
It all begins with a silent walk from Alamo Plaza to Main Plaza at 10:30–followed by a memorial ceremony in Main Plaza at 11. Those who have lost a loved one in a traffic crash can place a picture of that person on the memorial.
Luna said such accidents have taken a huge toll on Alamo City families over the last couple of years.
“In 2015, we had 154 fatalities total–as of November 12th (for 2016)… we’ve already seen 166” Luna said, adding it’s up to drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists to all do their part in watching out for each other to make sure we all stay safe.
“They’re not just a number… they’re a mom, they’re a dad. They’re a son, they’re a daughter. Their lives are important, and they have loved ones” Luna said.
