Jasper — Teenage Girl Injured After ATV Accident on County Road 256

Posted on Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 at 9:23 pm by Williams Hart   

Shortly before 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, a teenage girl was injured in an ATV accident that occurred near Jasper, Texas.

According to initial reports, Aimee Coleson, 15, was driving a Polaris ATV eastbound on County Road 256, near County Road 249, when she struck a sand bed and overcorrected, which resulted in the ATV rolling over. Coleson was thrown out of the vehicle and sustained serious injuries.

Coleson was initially transported to Jasper Memorial Hospital, but she was later airlifted to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston.

The girl’s father, 52-year-old Eddie Coleson, was a passenger in the vehicle and sustained minor 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. 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.

All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are small, single- or dual-person vehicles that are used for recreational purposes on off-road courses or areas of wider land. They are not legal to be used on the streets in the United States, but people still do use them, and so accidents involving this kind of vehicle happen. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, ATVs were responsible for 125,500 injuries and 621 deaths in 2003. The number of injuries rose to 146,000 in 2006 and to 150,900 in 2007.

Statistics also show that one-third of all ATV-related fatalities reported and recorded between 1982 and 2002 were riders under the age of 16.

Vehicular accidents, especially those involving ATVs, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/ATV 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.

Jasper — Man Hospitalized After Rollover Accident on Hopkins Drive

Posted on Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 at 9:16 pm by Williams Hart   

Shortly after 9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, a man was hospitalized after a rollover accident occurred in Jasper, Texas.

According to initial reports, a 1991 Jeep SUV was traveling along Hopkins Drive when all of a sudden, the vehicle lost control and rolled over. The driver, 69-year-old Harold Reed, was transported to Jasper Memorial Hospital for treatment.

A blood specimen was collected from Reed at the hospital and investigating troopers are waiting for the results of tests to determine if alcohol or some other substance was in his system.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to Harold Reed 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 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 for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/rollover 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.

Jasper — Man Injured After Car vs. Motorcycle Collision on Texas State Highway 63

Posted on Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 at 8:55 pm by Williams Hart   

Just before 9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, a man was injured in a car vs. motorcycle accident that occurred in Jasper, Texas.

According to initial reports, David Grogan, 27, was operating a 2017 Harley Davidson motorcycle eastbound on Texas State Highway 63 while Harold Reed, 69, was driving a 1991 Jeep SUV southbound on FM 1408. Reed pulled out in front of the motorcycle, and the two vehicles collided. Grogan was thrown over the hood.

Grogan was wearing a helmet and suffered only minor injuries.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to David Grogan. 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.

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

Jasper — 3 People Injured in Head-On Collision on U.S. Route 190

Posted on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020 at 9:56 pm by Williams Hart   

Just before 8 p.m. on Monday, March 2, 2020, three people were injured in a head-on collision that occurred near Jasper, Texas.

According to initial reports, a 2002 Chevrolet was traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes of the U.S. Route 190. As a result, it crashed into a 2013 Volvo SUV that was traveling westbound. The impact of the collision caused the Chevrolet to roll over several times.

The driver of the Chevrolet, 24-year-old Reginald Jones, the driver of the Volvo, 48-year-old Barbara Moorehead, and her passenger, Wayne Moorehead, were all taken to Christus Jasper Memorial Hospital where they are undergoing treatment.

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. 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.

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.

Car accidents, especially head-on collisions, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families.

Jasper — Man Dead After Car vs. Tractor-Trailer Collision on U.S. Route 190

Posted on Thursday, January 2nd, 2020 at 10:24 pm by Williams Hart   

At around 1:45 p.m. on Thursday, January 2, 2020, a man was killed in a car vs. tractor-trailer collision that occurred in Jasper, Texas.

According to initial reports, a 2014 Lincoln passenger car was traveling westbound on the U.S. Route 190, near FM 1408, at an unsafe speed when all of a sudden, the vehicle slid off the roadway to the left and struck a tractor-trailer that was unoccupied and parked off the edge of the roadway in the grass.

The driver, 54-year-old Curtis Jackson, was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Curtis Jackson. 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.

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 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.

Jasper — 3-Vehicle Wreck Kills Man on U.S. Highway 190

Posted on Wednesday, February 13th, 2019 at 6:13 am by Williams Hart   

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.
