San Antonio — Child Dies After Getting Struck by Vehicle on Ranch View While Riding Bicycle

Posted on Friday, February 21st, 2020 at 12:13 am by Williams Hart   

At approximately 8 a.m. on Thursday, February 20, 2020, a child was killed in a car vs. bicycle collision that occurred on the Far West Side of San Antonio, Texas.

According to initial reports, the ten-year-old girl was riding a bicycle near Ranch View and Remrock Valley on her way to school when all of a sudden, she lost control of her bike and veered into oncoming traffic. As a result, she was struck by a passing vehicle.

The young girl was then taken to University Hospital in critical condition. Unfortunately, she was later pronounced dead.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the young girl. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Vehicular accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and 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.

An accident involving a bicycle is a particular kind of vehicular accident, and it is one that is more common than anyone is inclined to think. In fact, the NHTSA reports that roughly 677 people died and about 38,000 were injured in bicycle crashes in 2011. However, since bicycle riders are not required to register their bicycles or get a license, the number of fatalities and injuries may actually be bigger. Additionally, about 90% of all bicycle injuries are never officially reported by police agencies. Because of this, the exact percentage of bicycle accidents, fatalities and injuries because of bicycle accidents will be difficult to determine.

Vehicular accidents, especially bicycle accidents, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/bicycle 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. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

If someone you love was seriously hurt or killed in an accident, you may be unsure of where to turn.

Waxahachie — Midlothian Council Member Dies After Fatally Struck by 18-Wheeler on Interstate 35 East

Posted on Thursday, February 20th, 2020 at 11:57 pm by Williams Hart   

At around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 19, 2020, a Midlothian City Council member was killed in a tragic auto-pedestrian accident that occurred in Waxahachie, Texas.

According to initial reports, Art Pierard’s Ford Mustang was stuck in the median of Interstate 35 East, near the U.S. Route 77, while an 18-wheeler was struck in the mud near a northbound exit. Pierard then got out of his vehicle after getting stuck and was standing near it when the 18-wheeler left the roadway and struck him.

Pierard was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Art Pierard. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Car accidents are a problem in this day and age, and yet, they still continue to happen on a regular basis. In statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and 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.

Car accidents are reported to be deadly for pedestrians particularly. The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) estimates that the number of pedestrian deaths in the U.S. is 6,000 in 2017. This is a 27% increase from 2007 to 2016, and it is said that the number in 2017 is a 25-year high.

Additionally, there are five states that had the most number of pedestrian fatalities in 2017, and these are California, Florida, New York, Arizona, and Texas. These states accounted for about 43% of pedestrian fatalities during the first half of 2017 despite the fact that they are home to only 30% of the U.S. population. The GHSA also claims that children and the elderly are the most vulnerable to this kind of accident.

Moreover, an accident involving a tractor-trailer is another 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 the auto-pedestrian ones and those involving trucks, are quite difficult for 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. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

According to initial reports, a red 2002 Mercury Mountaineer was traveling southbound on FM 1420, near Rio Hondo, when the driver, 30-year-old Sandra Patricia Diaz, failed to negotiate the speed entering a curve. As a result, she lost control of the vehicle, and the vehicle then veered off the roadway, went airborne, and struck a utility pole.

Diaz was pronounced dead at the scene. Meanwhile, the three children with her were transported to Valley Baptist Hospital in Harlingen. One child is in critical condition at this time.

The crash still remains under investigation.

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 are a problem in this day and age, and yet they still continue to happen on a regular basis.

Moreover, statistics show that about 16% of these car accidents are crashes where the vehicle leaves the road. In this type of car crash, a car would usually collide into a lamppost, a tree, or a building, etc. Lamppost and tree collisions comprise about 31% of fatalities in this type of vehicular accident.

There are a lot of possible causes and factors for this kind of vehicular crash. Some of these are drunken/distracted driving, traffic accidents, medical emergencies, age, and even the weather (for example, the fog making the roads not visible, or the rain making the road slippery, etc.).

Car accidents are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families.

Reagan — Man Dies After Rollover Accident on FM 413

Posted on Thursday, February 20th, 2020 at 11:23 pm by Williams Hart   

A man was killed in a rollover accident that occurred near Reagan, Texas on Wednesday, February 19, 2020.

According to initial reports, Allen Ray Carthel, the 54-year-old owner of Reagan Roundup Bar & Grill, was traveling along FM 413 when all of a sudden, he lost control of his vehicle. As a result, the vehicle left the roadway and rolled over until it came to rest on its roof in the Little Brazos River.

Carthel was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash still remains under investigation.

A particular kind of vehicular accident that is considered to be one of the deadliest is a rollover.

El Paso — Man Dies After Motorcycle Accident on West Paisano Drive

Posted on Wednesday, February 19th, 2020 at 11:48 pm by Williams Hart   

On the evening of Saturday, February 8, 2020, a motorcycle accident occurred in El Paso, Texas, and it claimed the life of one man.

According to initial reports, Arturo Lopez Jr., 58, was driving a motorcycle eastbound on West Paisano Drive when in the 700 block, he was unable to negotiate a curve. As a result, he crashed into the center median curb and was thrown from the motorcycle.

Lopez was not wearing a helmet, and he suffered head injuries. On the morning of Monday, February 10, he was pronounced dead.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Arturo Lopez Jr. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Vehicular accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and 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.

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.

Pecos — 2 People Killed, Another Injured in Head-On Collision Involving 18-Wheeler on Interstate 20

Posted on Wednesday, February 19th, 2020 at 11:40 pm by Williams Hart   

At around 12 p.m. on Saturday, February 15, 2020, two people were killed and another was injured in a head-on collision involving an 18-wheeler that occurred in Reeves County, Texas.

According to initial reports, a Honda Accord was traveling eastbound on Interstate 20, about nine miles west of Pecos, while an 18-wheeler was traveling westbound. For an unknown reason, the Accord struck a guardrail and crossed over the center median into the westbound lanes where it crashed into the 18-wheeler.

The driver and the passenger of the Accord, identified as 53-year-old Xiaojun Zhou and 54-year-old Tiezan Wang, were both pronounced dead at the scene.

Meanwhile, the driver of the 18-wheeler was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The crash still remains under investigation.

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.

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.

Additionally, an accident involving a tractor-trailer is another 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.
