IRENE C. CARDWELL STUDENT INJURED DURING MORNING ACCIDENT

SAN FELIPE DEL RIO CISD


Press Release – August 16, 2023



A vehicle struck a child who attends Irene C. Cardwell Elementary during the morning drop-off at

the school. Information received from EMT at the scene stated that the child sustained minor

injuries such as scrapes, burns, and bruises. Although it appears that there were no serious

injuries sustained, it is the hospital’s protocol to airlift an individual who has been injured in a motor

vehicle accident such as this one.

District and school officials have been in continuous contact with the child’s parent. As of this

press release, the parent notified officials that his daughter “is in good spirits and is stable. She

did not even cry during the flight. Medics are preparing her next for X-Rays and checking on her

bumps and bruises.”

We cannot stress the importance of being vigilant, using extreme caution, and reducing your

speed when driving through school zones and school parking areas. We urge parents and the

greater community help to us keep our children safe throughout the school year.

Together We Are Better
