Houston — 1 Person Dead, Another Critically Injured in T-Bone Collision on West 34th Street

Posted on Sunday, July 14th, 2019 at 8:38 pm    

At around 12:10 a.m. on Sunday, June 30, 2019, a driver was killed and another was injured in a T-bone collision that occurred in Houston, Texas.

According to initial reports, the male driver of a white Toyota Tundra pickup truck was traveling southbound on Golf Drive and was about to leave a stop sign at the intersection of West 34th Street. As he was about to do that, his vehicle was struck by a black Ford F-150 pickup truck that was traveling westbound on West 34th Street.

The driver of the Toyota was brought to Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Meanwhile, the 31-year-old male driver of the Ford was brought to Ben Taub General Hospital in critical condition.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the victims in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

A particular kind of car accident that is fairly common and also incredibly dangerous is the broadside collision, also known as the T-bone or side impact collision. This kind of car accident involves a vehicle being hit on its side by the front end of another vehicle. Crash research and analysis of accident data have shown that broadside accidents represent 13% of all car accidents in the United States and that 18% of all fatal car accidents are broadside-style collisions.

Additionally, the NHTSA reported that about 8,000 people are killed every year in this type of accident. And more often than not, if someone is lucky enough to survive this collision, they might suffer from other severe injuries, such as brain injuries, broken bones, internal injuries, and back, neck, and spine injuries. Passengers on the struck side of the vehicle often sustain injuries far worse than those received in rear-end crashes.

Car accidents, especially broadside collisions, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/broadside collisions, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Spring — Woman Found Dead After House Fire on Friar Lake Lane

Posted on Sunday, July 14th, 2019 at 8:19 pm    

Just after 3 a.m. on Friday, July 12, 2019, a woman was found dead after a fire broke out at a house in Spring, Texas.

According to initial reports, the fire broke out at a house on Friar Lake Lane and Bellchase Drive, in the Lexington Woods subdivision, and upon the arrival of the firefighters, they found fire and smoke coming from the back on the home. They were able to put out the fire within 10 minutes, and during a search of the home, they found a woman’s body just inside the back door.

Investigation is still ongoing for this fire.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unidentified woman. Alas, she is not the only one whose life is taken away by a fire accident. Fire accidents like this are alarmingly common in the United States. Statistics show that in 2017, there were about 1,319,500 fire accidents that occurred in the country, and from that number, 3,400 people died and 14,670 were injured. It has also been noted that in terms of gender, more men die and get injured in fires than women, while in terms of race, African American males and American Indian males have the highest death rates per million population.

Moreover, in 2016, there were three states that had the most number of fire deaths, and these states were California, Texas, and Georgia.

Some of the common causes of fire for both residential buildings and non-residential buildings are cooking, unintentional/careless, intentional, and electric malfunction.

Fires can be incredibly appalling in all aspects for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers out there who specialize in accidents like this. So, if you are a victim of a fire accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help.

Houston — Child Drowned in Pool at Apartment Complex in Valley Forge Drive

Posted on Sunday, July 14th, 2019 at 8:05 pm    

At approximately 10:50 a.m. on Sunday, July 14, 2019, a child was killed in a drowning accident that occurred in west Houston, Texas.

According to initial reports, the 6-year-old child was swimming in a pool at the apartment complex in the 10500 block of Valley Forge Drive when all of a sudden, he was found unconscious. The child was then brought to an area hospital with CPR in progress but was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unidentified child. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Drowning accidents like this are relatively common, not just in the United States but also all over the world. According to both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning is a major public health problem all over the world. They reported that about 360,000 people died from drowning in 2015.

Even just in the U.S. alone, the statistics for drowning fatalities are alarming. From 2005-2014, it was reported that there were an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional drownings annually in the country. That is about ten deaths every day. Additionally, about 332 people died every year from drowning in boating-related accident, and about 1 in 5 people who die from drowning in the U.S. are children 14 years old and younger. And for every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.

Moreover, statistics have shown that nearly 80% of people who die from drowning are male while children ages 1-4 have the highest drowning rates. The fatal unintentional drowning rate for African Americans was also significantly higher than that of Caucasians between 1999-2010.

Drowning accidents are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in accidents like this, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers.

San Antonio — 22-Year-Old Man Crushed, Killed in Forklift Accident at True Blue Granite

Posted on Thursday, July 11th, 2019 at 9:47 pm    

A man was killed in a workplace accident that occurred in San Antonio, Texas on Wednesday, July 3, 2019.

According to the San Antonio Police Department, Demonte Fisher, 22, was working late at True Blue Granite located on Binz-Engleman Road. He was operating a forklift when all of a sudden, the forklift flipped over him. One of his co-workers then found him trapped under the machine and attempted to save him. Fisher was then brought to SAMMC where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Demonte Fisher. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Workplace accidents are relatively common in the United States. According to statistics, 5,147 workers were killed on the job in 2017 in the country (3.5 per 100,000 full-time equivalent workers). This can be interpreted as more than 99 deaths a week or more than 14 deaths every day.

In addition to this, there were 4,674 worker fatalities in private industry in the calendar year 2017, with 971 from that number (or 20.7%) being in construction. In other words, one in five worker deaths in 2017 were in construction. The leading causes of private sector deaths in the construction industry — which are referred to as the “Fatal Four” — are falls, struck by object, electrocution, and caught-in/between. These “Fatal Four” were responsible for about 59.9% of the construction worker deaths in 2017.

Workplace accidents are undeniably terrible for the victims and their respective families. That is why, if you are a victim of a workplace accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help.

Amarillo — Man Dies After Motorcycle Crashes into Flooded Underpass at Southeast 3rd Avenue

Posted on Thursday, July 11th, 2019 at 9:36 pm    

At approximately 7:10 p.m. on Saturday, July 6, 2019, a man was killed in a motorcycle accident that occurred in Amarillo, Texas.

According to initial reports, Anthony Wayne Norton, 53, was driving a Can Am Spyder westbound on Southeast 3rd Avenue, near South Grant Street, when he disregarded traffic barrels and a large road closed sign. As a result, he struck a crossing arm that was used to restrict traffic from entering the underpass when it is flooded.

Norton was not wearing a helmet at the time of crash. As a result, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Anthony Wayne Norton. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Vehicular accidents like this are awfully common nowadays.

This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

Motorcycle accidents, a type of vehicular accident, are common despite the fact that motorcycles are initially believed to be far less crashworthy than closed vehicles. In 2016, the NHTSA reported that 5,286 people died in motorcycle accidents. In the same year as well, it is reported that motorcyclists were 28 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle mile traveled.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unidentified driver. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate.

Temple — Woman Killed in Head-On Collision on Texas State Highway 317

Posted on Thursday, July 11th, 2019 at 9:16 pm    

A head-on collision occurred in Temple, Texas on Monday, July 8, 2019, and it claimed the life of one woman.

According to initial reports, a 2007 Honda passenger car was traveling southbound on Texas State Highway 317 while a 2012 Chevrolet passenger car was traveling northbound. The Honda then drove onto the northbound side of the roadway in an attempt to pass another southbound vehicle. However, the Honda then drove into the path of the Chevrolet, and both vehicles collided head-on.

The driver of the Honda was identified as Tatiana Wolff, and she was brought to Baylor Scott and White Medical Center where she later died. Meanwhile, the driver of the Chevrolet was identified as 37-year-old Earl Johns, and he sustained non-capacitating injuries. The passenger in the Chevrolet, 63-year-old Clara Nail, suffered serious injuries, and she and Johns were both transported to Baylor Scott and White Medical Center.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the victims in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

A specific kind of car accident that is incredibly deadly is a head-on collision. The reason why a head-on collision is said to be incredibly deadly is because of the increased force that is sustained by both vehicles. Reports estimate that head-on collisions only comprise 2% of reported crashes, but they account for over 10% of driving fatalities. Some of the common outcomes of a head-on collision are spinal injuries, brain injuries, catastrophic injuries, broken bones, paralysis, and of course death.

Posted on Thursday, July 11th, 2019 at 8:55 pm    

At approximately 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, a man was killed in an unfortunate tree-trimming accident that occurred in Nacogdoches, Texas.

According to initial reports, the landowner of a private property in the 300 block of County Road 554 hired a man to cut some trees in the property. However, as a tree was about to be cut down, it fell on the man instead. The man was soon identified as 48-year-old Weston Charles Wheeler by the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Weston Charles Wheeler. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Workplace accidents are relatively common in the United States. According to statistics, 5,147 workers were killed on the job in 2017 in the country (3.5 per 100,000 full-time equivalent workers).

El Paso — Semi-Truck Crashes on Interstate 10, Causes Major Traffic Delays

Posted on Thursday, July 11th, 2019 at 8:29 pm    

At approximately 3 p.m. on Thursday, July 11, 2019, a crash involving a semi-truck in El Paso, Texas caused major traffic delays on the area.

According to initial reports, the semi-truck was traveling along Interstate 10 east, near Crockett Street and Buena Vista, when all of a sudden, it crashed. The accident caused major delays in the area, and the lanes were only opened hours later after the crews finished cleaning up the scene.

There are no reports of injuries as of right now.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is great to hear that no one was injured in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who are not as lucky. Vehicular accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

Additionally, an accident involving a tractor-trailer is a kind of vehicular accident, and it is a deadly one just because of the fact that a tractor-trailer is one of the largest and most dangerous vehicles in the world. It is estimated that there are more than 2 million tractor-trailers roaming in the United States, and each year, they get involved in about 500,000 accidents. And since the size of a tractor-trailer is enormous, the results of this kind of accident are catastrophic, from a severe injury to death.

Vehicular accidents, especially those involving trucks, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in truck accidents, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers.

Mathis — Woman Killed, 4 Children Injured in Rollover Crash on Interstate 37

Posted on Thursday, July 11th, 2019 at 8:13 pm    

At approximately 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 6, 2019, a woman was killed and four children were injured in a rollover crash that occurred near Mathis, Texas.

According to initial reports, a 2004 Ford Expedition driven by 32-year-old Sonya Estrella Munoz was traveling along Interstate 37 when all of a sudden, the vehicle experienced a rear left blowout. The blowout then caused the vehicle to lose control, travel onto the median, and roll over several times.

Munoz was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. There were four children with her, and two of them were ejected. Three of the children were transported to Driscoll’s Children’s Hospital and are in critical condition. The fourth child was transported to Christus Spohn Hospital Shoreline in stable condition.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the victims in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

A particular kind of vehicular accident that is considered to be one of the deadliest is a rollover. A 2010 statistics showed that rollovers comprised only 2.1% of nearly 9.1 million vehicular accidents, but they did account for well over 35% of all deaths. According to numerous studies, about 69% of the people who died from rollovers were not wearing any seatbelts at the time of the accident.

Vehicular accidents, especially those involving rollovers, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families.
