San Antonio — 1 Person Killed, 2 Others Injured in Rollover Accident on North Loop 1604 West

Posted on Thursday, March 26th, 2020 at 10:33 pm by Williams Hart   

Shortly before 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, one person was killed and two others were injured in a rollover accident that occurred in San Antonio, Texas.

According to initial reports, an SUV was traveling along North Loop 1604 West, near Tradesmen Drive, when all of sudden, it struck the wall and rolled over.

A male occupant was pronounced dead at the scene. Another male occupant was hospitalized in critical condition, and a woman was in stable condition.

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 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. 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.

Canton — 1 Person Killed in Rollover Accident on Interstate 20

Posted on Thursday, March 26th, 2020 at 10:02 pm by Williams Hart   

Just before 4 a.m. on Saturday, February 29, 2020, one person was killed in a rollover accident that occurred in Van Zandt County, Texas.

According to initial reports, a 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio was traveling westbound on Interstate 20, about five miles west of Canton, when it failed to maintain a single lane as it entered the center median. The vehicle then went into a side skid and then traveled back onto Interstate 20 crossing both lanes entering the outside median. The vehicle then rolled over several times, ejecting the driver.

The driver, 30-year-old Brandy Rene Tovar, was transported to Kaufman Presbyterian Hospital. Tovar was pronounced dead.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Brandy Rene Tovar. 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.

Refugio — Pedestrian Dies After Getting Struck by 18-Wheeler on U.S. Route 77

Posted on Thursday, March 26th, 2020 at 9:18 pm by Williams Hart   

At around 5 a.m. on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, a man was killed in an auto-pedestrian accident that occurred near Refugio, Texas.

According to initial reports, Rayhaan Traboulay, 36, was driving a 2013 Hyundai southbound on the U.S. Route 77 when he ran out of gas. He then got out of his car and stood by the driver’s side door on the improved shoulder when he was struck by a 2007 Kenworth semi-trailer truck.

Traboulay was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Rayhaan Traboulay. 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.

Moreover, 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 the auto-pedestrian ones and 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. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

According to initial reports, Federico Flores Jr., 44, was driving a 2007 Ford Ranger southbound on the U.S. Route 54 and was merging onto Border Highway when, for an unknown reason, he veered across the lanes and struck the center median.

Flores was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash still remains under investigation.

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.

The crash still remains under investigation.

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

Longview — 1 Person Killed, 2 Others Injured in Head-On Collision on Dundee Road

Posted on Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 at 9:37 pm by Williams Hart   

Just before 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 22, 2020, one person was killed and two others were injured in a head-on collision that occurred in Longview, Texas.

According to initial reports, a 2009 Chevrolet Impala passenger car was traveling westbound in the eastbound lane of Dundee Road at a high rate of speed. Meanwhile, a 2008 Kia Amanti had just turned eastbound onto Dundee Road and was traveling in the eastbound lane. Eventually, the two vehicles collided head-on into each other.

The driver of the Kia Amanti was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Chevrolet Impala was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The front seat passenger of the Chevrolet Impala was pronounced dead at the scene.

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. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/head-on 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, Lindsey Woods was traveling southbound on FM 700 while John Lyons was parked on the side of the road behind a DPS patrol car.
