Odessa — Teenage Girl Critically Injured After Getting Struck by Car on Texas State Highway 191

Posted on Thursday, January 16th, 2020 at 4:16 pm by Williams Hart   

On the evening of Tuesday, January 14, 2020, a teenage girl was critically injured in an auto-pedestrian accident that occurred in Odessa, Texas.

According to initial reports, the 15-year-old girl was with other people as they were trying to cross the busy eastbound lanes of Texas State Highway 191, just east of Loop 338. However, an oncoming vehicle struck the girl.

The girl sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.

The driver of the vehicle stopped after the accident and cooperated with authorities.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the unidentified teenage girl. 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.

Car accidents, especially the auto-pedestrian ones, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/auto-pedestrian 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.

Odessa — Man Dies After Rollover Accident on West Highway 80 East

Posted on Monday, January 6th, 2020 at 6:33 am by Williams Hart   

On the early morning of Saturday, January 4, 2020, a man was killed in a rollover accident that occurred in Odessa, Texas.

According to initial reports, Dustin Junior Garcia, 19, was driving a white Ford F-150 westbound on West Highway 80 East when for an unknown reason, he left the roadway and rolled over.

Garcia was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators revealed that alcohol is a possible factor that caused the accident.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Dustin Junior Garcia. 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 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.

Odessa — 25-Year-Old Man Dies After T-Bone Collision on Interstate 20

Posted on Tuesday, December 17th, 2019 at 10:16 pm by Williams Hart   

A man was killed in a T-bone collision that occurred in Midland County, Texas on Monday, November 25, 2019.

According to initial reports, Joshua Warren, 25, was traveling eastbound on Interstate 20, near Odessa, when all of a sudden, Wesley Compton, 21, pulled out in front of him from County Road 1310.

Warren was pronounced dead at the scene. Meanwhile, Compton was uninjured in the crash.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Joshua Warren. 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 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 for 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.

According to initial reports, Joanna Ruiz, 41, was driving along FM 2020, just two miles outside of Odessa, when she struck a pedestrian, identified as 20-year-old Julian Molinar.

Molinar was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ruiz initially fled the scene, but she was later found and arrested.

The crash still remains under investigation.

Odessa — Man Killed in Multi-Vehicle Accident on West University Boulevard

Posted on Monday, December 2nd, 2019 at 8:43 pm by Williams Hart   

Just before noon on Monday, November 4, 2019, a man was killed in a multi-vehicle accident that occurred in Odessa, Texas.

According to initial reports, a pickup truck, driven by 64-year-old Jose Carrasco, was stopped at a red light in the intersection of West University Boulevard and North County Road West when 73-year-old Ronald Green hit the pickup from behind.

Green then backed up and exited the vehicle while it was still in reverse. His own vehicle knocked him over and then ran into a third car. The third car left the scene before officers arrived.

Green was taken to Medical Center Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The crash still remains under investigation.

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

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 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.

Vehicular accidents, especially rear-end collisions, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/rear-end 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.

At approximately 6:20 p.m. on Wednesday, August 21, 2019, a man was killed in a rollover crash that occurred in Upton County, Texas.
