Orange — 2 Men Killed in Drunken Multi-Vehicle Accident on Interstate 10

Posted on Thursday, November 14th, 2019 at 9:25 pm by Williams Hart   

At around 5 a.m. on Wednesday, October 30, 2019, two men were killed in a multi-vehicle accident that occurred in Orange, Texas.

According to initial reports, the westbound traffic on Interstate 10 was stopped due to an earlier crash. The driver of a GMC pickup truck was traveling westbound on the interstate, but he failed to control his speed and sideswiped a Hyundai passenger vehicle. The GMC then rear-ended a Ford pickup truck, which caused a chain-reaction crash involving three additional vehicles.

The driver of the Ford, 40-year-old Vernon Morris, and the passenger, 45-year-old Alvin Beck, were both pronounced dead at the scene.

The drivers of all other vehicles were not seriously injured but were transported to local hospitals for observation.

The driver of the GMC, 29-year-old Jesse Griffin, was discovered to have been intoxicated at the time of the crash. As a result, he was placed under arrest and charged with intoxication manslaughter after he was medically cleared.

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.

There are three common causes of car accidents, and these are speeding, driving while distracted, and DUI (driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol). DUI, in particular, is quite appalling. The NHTSA reports that about 28 people die every day because of drunken driving crashes, and in 2010, 10,228 people died in DUI accidents while about 345,000 were injured. All these numbers paint a terrible picture indeed.

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

Beaumont — Man Dies After Car Rear-Ends 18-Wheeler on Texas State Highway 347

Posted on Thursday, November 14th, 2019 at 9:09 pm by Williams Hart   

At approximately 6:45 a.m. on Wednesday, October 30, 2019, a man was killed in a rear-end collision involving an 18-wheeler that occurred in Beaumont, Texas.

According to initial reports, James Lee McClendon, 52, was driving a car southbound in the inside lane of Texas State Highway 347 when all of a sudden, he drifted in the center turn lane and struck the back of an 18-wheeler that was making a left turn.

McClendon was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of James Lee McClendon. 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 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.

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.

Santa Fe — Man, Dog Killed in Crash Involving Bus on 7th Street and Avenue J

Posted on Thursday, November 14th, 2019 at 8:38 pm by Williams Hart   

At around 10 p.m. on Sunday, October 20, 2019, a man and his dog were killed in a bus accident that occurred in Santa Fe, Texas.

According to initial reports, Joseph Reyna, 30, was driving a Honda westbound on Avenue J and was about to make a left turn south on 7th Street when he struck a Galveston Island Transit trolley bus in the intersection. As a result, his vehicle became pinned underneath the trolley.

Reyna was transported to John Sealy Hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after. The dog was discovered on the passenger side floorboard and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to Joseph Reyna and his dog. 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.

This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

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. In other words, about 137 bus-crash-related fatalities occur every year.

Vehicular accidents, especially bus accidents, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families.

Carthage — Student Dies After ATV Accident on Private Property

Posted on Thursday, November 14th, 2019 at 8:23 pm by Williams Hart   

On the afternoon of Wednesday, November 13, 2019, a student was killed in an ATV accident that occurred in Panola County, Texas.

According to initial reports, Panola County Sheriff’s dispatch received a 911 call reporting a possible ATV accident just outside the city of Carthage. The accident occurred on private property, and it resulted in the tragic death of a Carthage ISD student.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unidentified student. 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 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.

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.

Car 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.

At approximately 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 13, 2019, one person was killed and two others were injured in a multi-vehicle accident that occurred in Whitesboro, Texas.

According to initial reports, a vehicle was traveling southbound the U.S. Route 377 when all of a sudden, it ran into the back of a car that was stopped at the intersection of Gunter Road. As a result, the struck vehicle was pushed into the northbound lane of the highway, where it was struck by a second vehicle.

One driver, 67-year-old William Gray, was pronounced dead at the scene. Meanwhile, two of the other three drivers were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the vehicle that made the initial contact was not injured.

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.

Canyon Lake — 3 People Killed in Head-On Collision on FM 306

Posted on Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 at 8:33 pm by Williams Hart   

Just before 7 p.m. on Sunday, November 10, 2019, three people were killed in a head-on collision that occurred in Canyon Lake, Texas.

According to initial reports, Dave Michael Estes, 40, was driving eastbound on FM 306 when all of a sudden, he veered onto the westbound lane and struck a car with three people inside. The occupants of the struck vehicle — 41-year-old Melissa Leigh Edwards, 93-year-old Walton Cleburne Walker, and Edwards’ 11-year-old son Brendan — were all killed in the crash.

Meanwhile, Estes suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Ascension Seton Hays Medical Center for treatment.

The crash still remains under investigation.

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.

According to initial reports, a 2011 Isuzu Flatbed was traveling eastbound on Texas State Highway 64 and was about to make a left turn into a private driveway when it was struck from behind by a 2015 Acura TLX.

The driver of the Acura, 40-year-old April Marie Cameron, was pronounced dead at the scene. Meanwhile, the driver of the flatbed did not appear to be injured in the crash.

Winona — 1 Person Killed in Motorcycle Accident on County Road 345

Posted on Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 at 7:34 pm by Williams Hart   

At approximately 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, November 10, 2019, one person was killed in a motorcycle accident that occurred in Winona, Texas.

According to initial reports, a motorcycle was traveling on County Road 345, just west of Wildcat Drive, when all of a sudden, it crashed. The driver of the motorcycle was pronounced dead at the scene.

Other information is limited at this time.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unidentified motorcyclist. 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.
