Austin — Teenager Dead After Car Crashes into Telephone Pole

Posted on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019 at 11:46 pm    

At around 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 9, 2019, a car crash in east Austin left one teenager dead and a woman critically injured.

According to Austin-Travis County EMS medics, a car with three passengers crashed into a telephone pole at the intersection of Springdale Road and Rogge Lane. A teenage boy was pronounced dead at the scene while a woman in her 30s suffered critical injuries and she and an infant were transported to Dell Seton Medical Center for treatment.

The cause of the crash is still unknown, but it was reported that there were sleet-induced icy patches throughout the region during the time of the accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the victims of this car crash. Alas, they are not the only ones who are affected by a car accident. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a 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.

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. Lamppost and tree collisions comprise about 31% of fatalities in this type of vehicular accident.

Car accidents are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car 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.

Schertz — Motorcyclist Dead After Interstate 35 Collision

Posted on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019 at 11:30 pm    

At around 2 in the afternoon on Sunday, February 17, 2019, a collision on Interstate 35 North in Schertz left one motorcyclist dead.

According to police reports, Zachary Ryan Hartley, 22, was driving erratically along Interstate 35, north of FM 2252, when he suddenly struck a vehicle. The impact threw him off the motorcycle and into the median between the highway and the access road where he was found. He was brought to the San Antonio Military Medical Central where he was pronounced dead at 2:41 p.m.

According to medical examiner investigators, Hartley died from craniocerebral injuries as he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

Investigation is still underway for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of Zachary Ryan Hartley. Alas, he is not the first victim whose life is taken away by a vehicular accident. Vehicular accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a 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 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 to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in motorcycle 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.

San Antonio — Woman Dead After Single-Car Crash Near Government Canyon

Posted on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019 at 11:16 pm    

At around 2 p.m. on Tuesday, February 19, 2019, a woman was found dead after her vehicle left the road and crashed into a stone wall near Government Canyon.

According to police reports, the unidentified woman was found by a passing motorist in the 12000 block of Texas State Highway 211. The motorist found her in the middle of the road with extensive injuries, but it was not clear yet whether she was thrown from her vehicle and whether she was wearing a seatbelt.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found that the woman was dead because of the accident. They also believed that she was traveling southbound on the road prior to the crash.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the unidentified driver. Alas, she is not the only one whose life is taken away by a car accident. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a 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.

Freer — San Antonio Woman Dead After Collision with 18-Wheeler

Posted on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019 at 8:40 pm    

At around 5:44 p.m. on Sunday, February 10, 2019, a San Antonio woman was killed in a collision involving an 18-wheeler truck in South Texas.

According to police reports, Elysia Neylan Leos, 21, was the passenger in a 2011 Mercedes-Benz that was traveling north on U.S. Route 59, near Freer. Route troopers said that this road was dark and unlit at the time, and when the driver veered from his lane, an 18-wheeler Freightliner truck traveling south struck the Mercedes-Benz. Leos was pronounced dead at the scene while the condition of the driver is unknown.

Investigation is still underway for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to Elysia Neylan Leos. Alas, she is not the only one whose life is taken away by a car accident. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a 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 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.

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.

Car accidents, especially head-on collisions and truck accidents, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/head-on 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.

The police are still trying to determine why the driver lost control of his vehicle, and they do not believe that alcohol was a factor. They are still continuing their investigation.

Comanche — Rollover Crash Kills Two Teenagers

Posted on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019 at 4:49 am    

At around 1:15 p.m. on Monday, February 18, 2019, a rollover crash that occurred in Texas State Highway 36 claimed the lives of two teenagers who were out of school for Presidents’ Day.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), Patricia Daelynn Tubbs, 16, was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado pickup south on Texas State Highway 36, four miles southeast of Comanche, when the vehicle veered off the roadway to the right, overturned and came to a rest on the driver’s side. The passenger of the vehicle, 16-year-old Felicity Kidd, was pronounced dead at the scene while Tubbs was brought to Comanche County Medical Center where she unfortunately died.

Investigation for this accident is still undergoing.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to Patricia Daelynn Tubbs and Felicity Kidd. Alas, they are not the only ones who died because of a car accident. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a 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 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 rollovers, are quite difficult to 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.

Houston — Man Charged with the Deaths of 2 People in Grand Parkway Accident

Posted on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 at 7:22 pm    

A 54-year-old man has been charged with two counts of manslaughter for causing the deaths of two people in a devastating wrong-way car accident on the Grand Parkway on Wednesday, December 12, 2018.

According to the reports, Charles Glaze’s vehicle crossed from the westbound lanes of Texas State Highway 99, over the median, and into oncoming traffic, hitting at least four vehicles. The collision caused twisted metal and shattered glass to be scattered across all lanes of the road. Two people died in this accident: Michael Brown, who was the driver of the silver Chevy crossover, and Linda Fuggiti, the driver of the Lexus.

Five other people, including Glaze, were brought to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Glaze was charged later for causing the deaths of Michael Brown and Linda Fuggiti. Prosecutors also noted that he has had previous crashes.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to Michael Brown and Linda Fuggiti. Alas, they are not the only ones whose lives are taken away by a car accident.

Pasadena — Man Survives After Being Impaled by Pole in Car Accident

Posted on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 at 7:20 pm    

A Marine man survived after he was impaled by a pole during a car accident that occurred over the Christmas holiday break in 2018.

According to reports, Fernando Dominguez, 20, was driving on Texas State Highway 225, near Scarborough, heading home to spend time with his family and friends when he suddenly fell asleep behind the wheel. The next thing he knew was that he could not move and that he was pinned to his car seat, impaled by a metal pole. Using his feet to get his phone, he called 911 and was eventually flown to the hospital.

Dominguez has had multiple surgeries, but thankfully, he has now been discharged from the hospital and is surrounded by his family.

It is great to hear that Fernando Dominguez survived this horrific accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who are not as lucky. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In a 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.

There are three most common causes for car accidents, and these are DUI (driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol), speeding, and driving while distracted. The latter seemed to be the case for Dominguez.
