Two vehicles collided on a service road just south of Interstate 20 on Sunday, April 26. A news release issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety states that the wreck occurred east of Midland at approximately 3:30 a.m.
Head-on Collision Between Two Pickups
The report states that an eastbound 1999 Chevrolet Silverado was in a head-on collision with a westbound 2010 GMC Sierra. A 37-year-old Carthage man was driving the Sierra at the time. He did not survive the collision. His 19-year-old male passenger from Midland received treatment at the hospital before his release.
One Driver in Stable Condition
The 18-year-old male motorist from Midland, who was driving the Silverado at the time of the accident, subsequently required transport to Midland Memorial Hospital. The TDPS release states that the man was in stable condition. According to the authorities, the deceased man was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
Although this fatal event is the subject of an ongoing investigation, it is possible for those that suffer injury due to the negligent actions of a motorist to seek redress in the state’s civil courts. Victims sometimes seek compensation for unpaid medical expenses, pain-and-suffering and lost wages. The injured also seek monetary damages for long-term rehabilitation costs when appropriate.
If you or a family member suffers adverse effects from a traffic accident, it is possible to review your case with an auto accident attorney. A free consultation with an attorney focused on appropriate areas of the law sometimes leads to civil litigation filed on your behalf. In other cases, it may result in a monetary settlement with an insurance company.
