Houston — Fire Damages Home in Greater Inwood

Posted on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019 at 8:04 pm    

At around 1 a.m. on Wednesday, February 13, 2019, a fire damaged a house in Greater Inwood, Houston.

According to the Houston Fire Department, the fire began in the kitchen area of a one-story home at Shady Moss Lane and Woodland Trails Drive. Chris Chavez, a 19-year-old resident of the house, said he was sleeping, but he woke up when his sister shouted into his room that there was a fire. He then helped his teenage sister, his toddler nephew, and his parents out of the house. Their four dogs also managed to get out of the house safely.

Though the family was safe from this accident, the house suffered extensive damage. The Houston Fire Department Arson Division is still investigating this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the family in this accident. Alas, they are not the only ones whose lives are affected by a fire. Fire accidents like this are alarmingly common in the United States. Statistics show that in 2017, there were about 1,319,500 fire accidents that occurred in the country, and from that number, 3,400 people died and 14,670 were injured. It has also been noted that in terms of gender, more men die and get injured in fires than women, while in terms of race, African American males and American Indian males have the highest death rates per million population.

Moreover, in 2016, there were three states that had the most number of fire deaths, and these states were California, Texas, and Georgia.

Some of the common causes of fire for both residential buildings and non-residential buildings are cooking, unintentional/careless, intentional, and electric malfunction.

Fires can be incredibly appalling in all aspects for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers out there who specialize in accidents like this. So, if you are a victim of a fire accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help. Fire accident lawyers/explosion accident lawyers will be more than willing to help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Houston — Man Dead After Crashing into Tree

Posted on Wednesday, February 20th, 2019 at 7:46 pm    

At approximately 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday, February 19, 2019, a man was dead after a single-vehicle crash that happened in northwest Houston.

According to police reports, the unidentified driver was heading north on Northborough Drive when he suddenly veered over into the oncoming lane of traffic and overcorrected until he collided into a tree in the 13300 block. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

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.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the unidentified driver. Alas, he 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.

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.

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. 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.

Car accidents, especially head-on collisions, are quite difficult to 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.

Houston — Driver Dead After Fatal Crash on Gulf Freeway

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

A man was killed after he crashed his vehicle into an exit ramp on Interstate 45 in southeast Houston at around 11:30 in the evening on Saturday, January 12, 2019.

According to reports, an unidentified 50-year-old man was driving a black Ford F-150 truck, heading south on the Gulf Freeway service road when he suddenly lost control of his vehicle. The truck then collided into a part of the HOV exit ramp, causing it to spin back out in the feeder lanes. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the unnamed victim. Alas, he is only one of the very many victims 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.

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. Moreover, the NHTSA reports that 15% of fatal car accidents occur near intersections while 85% occur on the open road.

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.

Houston — 2 Officers Injured After Chase Ends in Fiery Crash

Posted on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 at 4:11 am    

Two Houston police officers were hospitalized after a chase ended in a fiery crash in the Third Ward in Houston on Monday, February 18, 2019.

The chase began at approximately 12:15 a.m. when the officers attempted to pull over what they thought was a stolen vehicle at Hutchins Street and Holman Street. Instead of pulling over, the driver of the alleged stolen vehicle took off on a nearly hour-long chase throughout the South Central area. The officers tried to end the pursuit with a PIT maneuver, but instead, they ended up crashing into a tree at Highway 288 and Blodgett Street, causing their vehicle to burst into flames.

The suspect then ditched his vehicle and fled on foot, but an officer’s K-9 caught up with him. He was taken into custody and charged with failure to stop and render aid and evading arrest.

Both the officers suffered neck and back pain and were brought to the hospital. They have since been released.

It is great to hear the officers are now recovering from their injuries. Unfortunately, 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 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.

In addition to this, a police car chase is not uncommon in the United States. In fact, in 2012, about 68,000 vehicle pursuits were reported. It is also common for police chases to end in death or injury. The Bureau of Justice Statistics reported that from 1996 to 2015, an average of 355 people were killed every year in pursuit-related accidents. A third of the number consist of innocent bystanders, and a USA Today investigation has noted that chases kill black people — both as innocent bystanders and as the target of the pursuit — 3 times more than anybody else.

Police car chases that end in a crash are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers who are experts in cases like this. That is why, 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.

Houston — Train Jumps Tracks in East Harris County

Posted on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 at 3:00 am    

At approximately 1:20 in the afternoon on Monday, February 18, 2019, a train derailment was reported to happen on Industrial Road near 100 Street in east Harris County.

According to Harris County deputies, the train was hauling what appeared to be wind turbine blades, and it failed to make a turn, thus causing some box cars to jump the tracks. A video from SKY2 revealed that one of the blades came off of the train and crashed through a fence, and it seemed to be touching a nearby power pole as well.

There were no reported injuries, and the accident also did not affect traffic.

It is great to hear that no one was critically injured in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who are not as lucky. An accident involving a train is a particular kind of vehicular accident, and though it is not as common as the other kinds, it can still be quite deadly. The National Transportation Safety Bureau has reported that almost every 2 hours, a person or a vehicle is hit by a train in the United States. A few of the common scenarios in this kind of vehicular accident include derailment, train-train collisions, train-car collisions, train-person collisions, and damage to property.

Studies have shown that nearly 1,000 people die every year in the U.S. due to a train accident.

Train accidents are undeniably tragic and devastating to the victims and their respective families. They can also be highly complicated. Thankfully, there are lawyers who are experienced in cases like this, so if you are a victim of a train-related accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask help from these lawyers. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Houston — Rear-End Collision Kills One on South Loop West

Posted on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 at 2:20 am    

A man who was critically injured in a crash at 1000 block of South Loop West (also known as South Interstate Highway 610 West) at approximately 9:10 p.m. on Saturday, January 19, 2019, was pronounced dead two days later.

The unidentified 45-year-old victim was in a gold Saturn L20 that was stopped in a moving lane of traffic westbound when his vehicle was struck from behind by a gray Toyota Tundra pickup truck. The victim was then brought to Memorial Hermann Hospital, but unfortunately, he died from his injuries on Monday, January 21, 2019.

It is unfortunate to hear of the passing of the unnamed victim. Alas, he is only one of the very many victims whose lives are taken away by a car accident. Car accidents are a problem in this day and age, and yet, they still continue to happen on a regular basis. 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 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 rear-end collisions, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/rear-end 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. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

Houston — DUI Accident Kills Two on West Loop South

Posted on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 at 2:03 am    

A fatal crash that happened at the 8500 block of West Loop South (also known as West Interstate Highway 610 South) at approximately 1:50 a.m. on Sunday, January 20, 2019 left two people dead.

According to the Houston Police Department, a white Lexus GS 300 was disabled in a northbound moving lane of traffic after it was struck from behind by a silver Ford Taurus. The collision caused the Lexus to veer to the left where it was struck by a black Ford F-150 pickup. The Lexus then crashed into a concrete barrier while the Ford F-150 struck another vehicle that was parked in the emergency lane of the freeway.

The male driver of the Lexus was pronounced dead at the scene. The female passenger in the Lexus was brought to Memorial Hermann Hospital, but unfortunately, she later died there.

The driver of the Ford F-150, 27-year-old Jacob Austin Emery, was found to be intoxicated, and as a result, he was charged with driving while intoxicated.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the victims of this particular accident. Alas, they are not the only ones whose lives are 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.

The three common causes of car accidents 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 drunk-driving crashes, and in 2010, 10,228 died in DUI accidents while about 345,000 were injured. All these numbers paint a terrible picture indeed.

Car accidents, especially the DUI ones, are quite difficult to 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.

Houston — Driver Crashes into Elderly Woman’s House

Posted on Monday, February 18th, 2019 at 2:33 am    

A driver is now on the run after they crashed into a home in northeast Harris County on Friday, February 15, 2019.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office reported that the accident happened at approximately 2 a.m. at a house near Ciceter Road and Hollybrook Lane. Lillie Faulkner, 82, was sleeping in her home when she heard a loud bang. When she got to the garage area to check what caused the bang, she found parts of her garage in pieces along with the car that had crashed, leaving extensive damage.

The driver of the vehicle fled on foot, and a search of the license plate revealed that the vehicle was registered to a home just a mile away from the scene of the accident.

Investigation is still underway for this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the house of Lillie Faulkner. Alas, this is not the first time that a car accident has left extensive damage to the victim. 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 about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them annually.

One type of car accident is a crash involving buildings or walls. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) reported that in 2016, there were 266 of such crashes in Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam counties. This number increased from 2014’s 255 and 2015’s 240.

Rob Reiter and Mark Wright provided another statistics, and it is shown that of the crashes into buildings that they gathered between 2014 and 2017, 24% of those involved retail stores, 23% commercial buildings, 19% restaurants, and the remainder being convenience stores, offices, and other buildings.

The two primary causes of this kind of car crash are said to be operator error and pedal error. The former means that the drivers accelerated too much or were speeding or were in the wrong gear, while the latter usually means the driver made the mistake of stepping on the gas pedal instead of the brake. Other possible causes include drunken driving, traffic accidents, medical emergencies, the age of the driver, and even the weather (i.e. the rain making the roadway slippery, etc.).

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.

Houston — 1 Dead, Another Injured, in Collision in Meyerland

Posted on Monday, February 18th, 2019 at 2:06 am    

At around 7:02 p.m. on Saturday, February 16, 2019, a deadly crash killed one woman in her 80s and injured another driver in the 4998 block of West Bellfort Avenue in Meyerland.

According to investigators, the woman was coming from a stop sign on the corner of Balmforth Lane and West Bellfort Avenue when she was struck by a car that was traveling westbound. The woman and the driver of the other vehicle were brought to the hospital, but the woman was pronounced dead upon arrival. The other driver was injured, but the extent of the injuries are unknown as of now.

It is unfortunate to hear of the death of the woman, but sadly, she is only one of the very many victims of a car accident. Car accidents like this are awfully common nowadays.
