Fort Worth — Man Killed in Pickup Truck vs. Bus Collision on Angle Avenue

Posted on Thursday, August 15th, 2019 at 8:45 pm by Williams Hart   

Just before 5 a.m. on Wednesday, August 14, 2019, a man was killed in a bus collision that occurred in Fort Worth, Texas.

According to the Fort Worth Fire Department, a pickup truck and a bus were traveling near Angle Avenue and West Long Avenue when the two of them collided into each other along the intersection. A man, 60-year-old Luis Daniel Hernandez, was pronounced dead at the scene. Two other people were reported to be injured in this accident.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Luis Daniel Hernandez. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Vehicular 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 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.

An accident involving a bus is a particular kind of vehicular accident, and it is fairly common even though buses are often deemed as a safe mode of transportation. According to the NHTSA, between 2000 and 2007, there have been 1,093 fatal bus accidents, and from this number, about 1,315 people died, and 3,471 were injured. In other words, about 137 bus-crash-related fatalities occur every year.

Vehicular accidents, especially bus accidents, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in bus 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.

Garland — Multi-Vehicle Crash Causes on Walnut Street Bus to Flip Over

Posted on Thursday, May 2nd, 2019 at 10:33 pm by Williams Hart   

At approximately 9:15 a.m. on Thursday, May 2, 2019, a multi-vehicle collision occurred in Garland, Texas.

According to initial reports, a school bus, an 18-wheeler, and several other vehicles collided into each other near the intersection of North 1st Street and East Walnut Street, not far from Garland High School. This collision caused the bus to flip over to its side.

There are no reports yet with regards to any injury. However, Garland Police did say that there were no children inside the bus at the time of the accident.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the vehicles in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Vehicular accidents are a problem in this day and age, and yet, they still continue to happen on a regular basis. 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.

In other words, about 137 bus-crash-related fatalities occur ever year.

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. 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 bus and truck accidents, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families.

A student inside the SUV was also transported to the hospital.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the children in this accident. Alas, they are not the only ones who are affected by a vehicular accident.

The National Transportation Safety Bureau (NTSB) also notes that 87% of rear-end collisions happened simply because the driver was not paying attention to the road.

Furthermore, an accident involving a bus is another particular kind of vehicular accident, and it is fairly common even though buses are often deemed as a safe mode of transportation. According to the NHTSA, between 2000 and 2007, there have been 1,093 fatal bus accidents, and from this number, about 1,315 people died, and 3,471 were injured. In other words, about 137 bus-crash-related fatalities occur ever year.

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.
