Victoria — Drivers Hospitalized After Semi-Truck Collision on U.S. Route 59

Posted on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019 at 9:36 pm by Williams Hart   

At around 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, August 27, 2019, drivers were hospitalized after a multi-vehicle accident occurred in Victoria, Texas.

According to initial reports, two semi-trucks were traveling northbound on the U.S. Route 59 when one of the semi-trucks was turning eastbound on County Road. The other semi-truck failed to control their speed and struck the rear of the first semi-truck. Then a passenger vehicle ran over the debris on the roadway, which caused damage to the vehicle.

The drivers of both semi-trucks were transported to local hospitals 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. 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.

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.

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

At approximately 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 14, 2019, a woman was killed in a bus accident that occurred in Live Oak County, Texas.

According to initial reports, Jamie Beatriz Trevino, 33, was driving a small sedan with a small child passenger along the U.S. Route 59, between Freer and George West, while a charter bus was traveling along FM 624. Trevino ran a stop sign, and as a result, she crashed into the bus and ended up underneath the bus.

Trevino was pronounced dead at the scene. Meanwhile, the child was in a safety seat and was brought to Driscoll Children’s Hospital in serious condition.

There were about 35 people on the bus at the time of the crash. Two passengers were checked out by medics on the scene. They are expected to be okay.

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.

Houston — Woman Injured After Falling Out of Car on U.S. Route 59

At approximately 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 3, 2019, a woman was injured in a vehicular accident that occurred in Houston, Texas.

According to initial reports, the woman’s car was stolen by her boyfriend, and during the theft, she fell out of the car and onto the U.S. Route 59. Because of this, she sustained some injuries, and another person was injured as well. Both of them were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The police reported that their injuries are not life-threatening.

This accident still remains under investigation.

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.

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.

At approximately 3:55 p.m. on Monday, July 29, 2019, two drivers were injured in a multi-vehicle accident that occurred in Sugar Land, Texas.

According to initial reports, an 18-wheeler was traveling southbound on the main lanes of U.S. Route 59 when all of a sudden, it made an inappropriate lane change to the right, which forced the car next to it to fall over the outside pillar wall. As a result, the car flew over the concrete barrier and flipped on its side. The semitrailer also went over the concrete wall.

The two drivers of the vehicles were injured, but they were both expected to be okay.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is great to hear that no one was seriously injured in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who are not as lucky. Vehicular accidents like this are awfully common nowadays.

Victoria — Motorcyclist Dies After Rear-Ending Tractor-Trailer on U.S. Route 59

Posted on Thursday, May 16th, 2019 at 10:21 pm by Williams Hart   

At approximately 9:40 p.m. on Monday, May 6, 2019, a man was killed in a motorcycle accident that occurred in Victoria, Texas.

According to initial reports, Jose Luis Garcia, 34, was operating his 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle when he crashed it into the rear of a tractor-trailer, driven by 45-year-old John Denton, on U.S. 59 Business. Garcia was pronounced dead at the scene.

An investigation is still ongoing for this accident, and as of right now, the police believed that speed was a factor in this crash.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to Jose Luis Garcia. Alas, he is not the only one whose life is taken away by a vehicular accident. 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 for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident.

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.

Another 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.

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 motorcycle/truck accidents and rear-end collisions, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families.

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.
