JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas -- An airman first class who volunteered to be a designated driver for her base's Airman Against Drunk Driving program ran into a bit of bad fortune while in this "good Samaritan" role.
After responding to a call to pick up a fellow Airman, she was returning to base when she spotted a box in the road. She swerved to avoid hitting the box, lost control of her vehicle and hit the base's "welcome" sign.
Her vehicle's airbags deployed, and she sustained a slight abrasion to her face and bruising on her right arm and leg. The passenger suffered no injuries.
