Fort Worth — TCU Administrator Killed in DUI Accident on Rosedale Street

Posted on Tuesday, March 19th, 2019 at 10:48 pm    

At approximately 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 10, 2019, a Texas Christian University administrator was killed in a drunken driving crash in Fort Worth, Texas.

According to police reports, Jamie Dulle, the 41-year-old TCU’s assistant dean of campus life, was driving on West Rosedale Street, near Forest Park Boulevard, when she was rear-ended by another vehicle driven by Cristen Hamilton, 33. Dulle was brought to John Peter Smith Hospital, but unfortunately, she later died there.

Hamilton was arrested and charged with intoxication assault.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to Jamie Dulle. 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.

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 drunken 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.

Furthermore, another 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 and rear-end collision ones, are quite difficult to the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/DUI 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.

Van — 2 People Hospitalized After Rear-End Collision on Interstate 20

Posted on Thursday, March 14th, 2019 at 12:13 am    

At approximately 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, two people were injured after a rear-end collision that happened on Interstate 20 in Van Zandt County, Texas.

According to initial reports, an 18-wheeler rear-ended a car on Interstate 20, just west of the overpass at FM 314. Two people were trapped inside the car, and firefighters had to extract them. The unidentified driver of the car was brought to a Tyler hospital with serious injuries while the passenger was brought to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the 18-wheeler was uninjured.

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers are still investigating this accident.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the victims in this accident. Alas, they are not the only ones who are affected by a vehicular 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.

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 to 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.

A man was dead after he got involved in a fatal collision with an 18-wheeler in Orange, Texas at around 10:15 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.

According to initial reports, a 2008 Honda passenger vehicle was stalled in the outside traffic lane of Interstate 10, near FM 1136, when an 18-wheeler rear-ended it. Upon impact, both vehicles were engulfed in flames. The driver of the Honda, 24-year-old Nicholas Alan Blanchette of Beaumont, died at the scene.

The driver of the 18-wheeler was uninjured.

Investigation is still ongoing for this accident.

Hillsboro — Christian Rock Band Members Escape Serious Injury in Interstate 35 Crash

Posted on Wednesday, March 6th, 2019 at 11:41 pm    

At around 4:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 3, 2019, members of the touring Christian rock band Seventh Day Slumber escaped serious injury when their bus rear-ended a fire truck on Interstate 35 in Hillsboro, Texas.

According to initial reports, the fire truck, with emergency lights flashing, was stopped at the scene of a car fire on Interstate 35. Meanwhile, the bus that was carrying the band attempted to swerve to miss an 18-wheeler, but in doing so, it ended up slamming into the rear of the fire truck. A firefighter who was rolling up a hose at the back of the fire truck escaped injury, but the impact of the collision knocked the bus 200 feet. The bus driver and the members inside were slightly injured. They were treated at a local hospital and were eventually released.

It is great to hear that no one was critically injured in this accident. 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.

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 ever year.

Furthermore, another 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.

Posted on Tuesday, March 5th, 2019 at 10:07 pm    

At around 7 a.m. on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, a sanitation worker was injured after a vehicular accident that occurred in Orange, Texas.

According to Orange Police, a 2018 white Ford F-150, driven by a 58-year-old man from Orange, struck the rear of the 2017 green Freightliner garbage truck in the 4700 block of Old Highway 90, near Lindenwood Drive.

As a result, he sustained a severe injury to his lower leg and was brought to a hospital.

On the morning of Tuesday, February 12, 2019, an Ennis resident was killed in a two-vehicle crash that happened on Interstate 45.

Wixon Valley — Distracted Driver Crashes into Bryan ISD Bus

Posted on Monday, February 18th, 2019 at 6:39 am    

At around 4 p.m. on Friday, February 15, 2019, a car crashed into the back of a Bryan ISD school bus in east Brazos County.

According to initial reports, the driver of the pickup was on his phone, distracted, while he was driving along Texas State Highway 21, between Wixon Valley and Kurten. Because of this, he was not paying attention to the road, thus causing him to rear-end a Bryan ISD school bus that was stopped and was unloading elementary students.

The students inside the bus were uninjured, and the driver of the pickup was unharmed as well.

Investigation is still underway for this particular accident.

It is great to hear that no one was seriously injured in this accident. However, 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. This can be translated to roughly 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.

Distracted while driving is actually considered to be one of the most common causes of car accidents. The other two popular causes are DUI (driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol) and speeding.

Jasper — 3-Vehicle Wreck Kills Man on U.S. Highway 190

Posted on Wednesday, February 13th, 2019 at 6:13 am    

A man from Jasper died on Wednesday, January 30, 2019, after he sustained injuries from a 3-vehicle crash that happened on the U.S. Highway 190 in Jasper County on Sunday, January 27, 2019.

According to initial reports, Rex Bryan, 67, was driving a 2001 Dodge Ram pickup north on FM 777. Around at the same time, Carrie Wilburn, 45, was driving a 2007 Chrysler SUV east on Highway 190. Bryan stopped at the stop sign and then pulled out into the path of the Chrysler. He struck it in the back-right quarter panel, which caused the Chrysler to veer off the road and the Dodge to spin into the westbound traffic lane of Highway 190. At this point, the Dodge was struck by a 2014 Dodge Durango SUV driven by 32-year-old Jerri Moore.

Eight people were injured in the crash while Bryan was airlifted to the hospital. Unfortunately, on Wednesday, Bryan was pronounced deceased.

It is unfortunate to hear of Rex Bryan’s death. 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.

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.
