Victoria — Pilot Killed After Plane Carrying UPS Packages Crashes on Benbow Road

Posted on Tuesday, December 10th, 2019 at 7:29 pm by Williams Hart   

Shortly after 8 p.m. on Monday, December 9, 2019, a pilot was killed in an aviation accident that occurred near Victoria, Texas.

According to initial reports, Martinaire flight MRA 679, a Cessna 208 small feeder aircraft that was carrying UPS packages took off from the Victoria Regional Airport and was heading to Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. For an unknown reason, the plane crashed on Benbow Road, which is roughly 9 miles from the Victoria Regional Airport.

The pilot of the plane, 61-year-old Yutae Kim, was pronounced dead at the scene. Kim was the only person on board.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Yutae Kim. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Aviation accidents are not as common as the other kinds of vehicular accidents, but it should be noted that though that is the case, airplane and helicopter crashes are significantly a lot more dangerous and devastating when they do happen. This is simply because of the extreme heights and speeds that are involved with them. Serious physical injuries and emotional and psychological damage are the expected outcomes of an aviation accident.

Some of the common causes of aviation accidents are air traffic controller error, negligence by the airline, airplane or helicopter pilot error, pilot intoxication, and helicopter or airplane defects and malfunction.

Aside from the devastating nature of aviation accidents, cases involving them are substantially complex, and as a result, a trusted attorney is needed to help the victim and their family. So, if you are a victim of an aviation accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help. Aviation accident lawyers are more than willing to 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.

Victoria — Teenage Girls Killed in Auto-Pedestrian Accident on U.S. Route 59

Posted on Tuesday, November 26th, 2019 at 8:32 pm by Williams Hart   

Two teenage girls were killed in a tragic vehicular accident that occurred in Victoria, Texas on Friday, November 8, 2019.

According to initial reports, Za’Kerania “KeeKee” Collins-Lee, 19, and Jayde Thomas, 17, were traveling to Three Rivers to pick up a friend. They were traveling back to Houston on the U.S. Route 59 in Victoria when their vehicle stalled out and started smoking.

An 18-wheeler that was traveling along the highway didn’t see their car pulled over onto the shoulder until the last second. The 18-wheeler managed to swerve out of the way, but an SUV traveling behind the semi swerved in the opposite direction and hit Collins-Lee and Thomas who were trying to flee from the burning vehicle.

Collins-Lee was airlifted to a hospital in San Antonio where she was on life support. Seven days later, she was pronounced dead due to severe brain damage. Thomas was also pronounced dead.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the teenage girls. 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.

Posted on Tuesday, November 26th, 2019 at 8:15 pm by Williams Hart   

At around 2:45 p.m. on Saturday, November 23, 2019, a driver was killed in a single-vehicle accident that occurred in Victoria, Texas.

According to initial reports, a 2011 Nissan Xterra was traveling southbound on the U.S. Route 59, near mile marker 642, when all of a sudden, the SUV left the roadway and traveled down the grassy embankment and continued through a barbed-wire fence. The SUV then struck a tree with its left front quarter, thus causing significant damage.

The driver of the SUV, 53-year-old Sean Cody, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Sean Cody. 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.

Moreover, statistics show that about 16% of these car accidents are crashes where the vehicle leaves the road. In this type of car crash, a car would usually collide into a lamppost, a tree, or a building, etc. Lamppost and tree collisions comprise about 31% of fatalities in this type of vehicular accident.

Victoria — Driver Hospitalized After T-Bone Collision on North East Street

Posted on Thursday, September 5th, 2019 at 9:14 pm by Williams Hart   

At approximately 8 p.m. on Wednesday, September 4, 2019, a driver was hospitalized after a T-bone collision occurred in Victoria, Texas.

According to initial reports, a car was traveling southbound on North East Street and failed to stop at a stop sign. As a result, it was struck by a car that was traveling east on East Nueces Street.

One driver was transported to DeTar hospital in an unknown condition. Meanwhile, the other driver refused to be transported.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the driver 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 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 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.

At approximately 1:07 p.m. on Monday, September 2, 2019, three people were injured in a T-bone collision that occurred in Victoria, Texas.

According to initial reports, a Subaru was at the stop sign of the intersection of Texas 105 Loop and the U.S. Route 87, and it failed to yield the right of way and pulled out in front of a pickup truck. The truck was unable to slow down, and the Subaru then struck the driver’s side door of the pickup.

All three passengers were brought to Cuero Community Hospital in stable condition while the driver of the pickup refused EMS and was released at the scene.

The driver of the Subaru was issued a citation for failure to yield right of way at a stop sign.

The crash still remains under investigation.

Posted on Monday, September 2nd, 2019 at 8:50 pm by Williams Hart   

At approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 1, 2019, a woman and her two children were injured in a single-vehicle accident that occurred in Victoria, Texas.

According to initial reports, a mother was driving with her children, a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old, along the U.S. Route 77 when all of a sudden, she lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a guardrail. All three of them were brought to the hospital, and they are expected to be okay.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is great to hear that the victims in this accident are expected to recover. However, there are countless other victims who are not as lucky. 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 for every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident.

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.

Moreover, the NHTSA reports that from 1997 to 2006, accidents involving vans led to the deaths of more than 1,000 occupants, with 120 occupants dying in 2004 alone. It has also been noted that vans with more than 10 occupants showed a greatly increased risk of an accident, and in about 83% of the van accident fatalities, the occupants were not wearing any seatbelt at the time of the accident.
