A man from Jasper died on Wednesday, January 30, 2019, after he sustained injuries from a 3-vehicle crash that happened on the U.S. Highway 190 in Jasper County on Sunday, January 27, 2019.
According to initial reports, Rex Bryan, 67, was driving a 2001 Dodge Ram pickup north on FM 777. Around at the same time, Carrie Wilburn, 45, was driving a 2007 Chrysler SUV east on Highway 190. Bryan stopped at the stop sign and then pulled out into the path of the Chrysler. He struck it in the back-right quarter panel, which caused the Chrysler to veer off the road and the Dodge to spin into the westbound traffic lane of Highway 190. At this point, the Dodge was struck by a 2014 Dodge Durango SUV driven by 32-year-old Jerri Moore.
Eight people were injured in the crash while Bryan was airlifted to the hospital. Unfortunately, on Wednesday, Bryan was pronounced deceased.
It is unfortunate to hear of Rex Bryan’s death. Alas, he is only one of the very many victims whose lives are taken away by a car accident. Car 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. This can be translated to about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.
A particular kind of vehicular accident that is fairly common in the United States is a rear-end collision. It has been reported that there are about 1.7 million rear-end collisions in the U.S. every year, and from that number, roughly 1,700 people die while another 500,000 are injured. 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.
Car accidents, especially rear-end collisions, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families.
