Accident on 175 Just Before Rush Hour Leaves One Dead, Several Injured

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – At least one person was killed early Friday in a car crash involving three vehicles. It happened just before the morning rush hour along the northbound side of Highway 75 near the Midpark Road exit in Dallas.

Details of the crash remain under investigation, but it included a pickup truck and two cars. One of those cars was completely upside down on the highway when emergency workers arrived at the scene. According to a witness, the driver of that flipped vehicle was ejected during the crash.

The other car came to a rest near the upside down vehicle, turned around in the opposite direction in the leftmost lanes, while the pickup truck also ended up turned around, but in the righthand lanes.

All of the victims have all been removed from the wreckage, but none have been identified and their conditions are not known. Authorities have not even confirmed how many individuals were injured during this incident, other than to say that the crash was fatal.

Investigators were on the scene collecting evidence until around 11:00 a.m. and during that time has the northbound side of the highway closed. Traffic was diverted onto the frontage road. Check the traffic map for current highway conditions and the latest updates.

Meanwhile, two other vehicles were involved in a second, separate crash at that same location, but on the southbound side of the highway. The driver of a Jeep smashed into the rear end of an SUV as they both approached the initial crash scene. Those two drivers were both uninjured and the scene was cleared quickly.

However, the onlooker crash did result in some guardrail damage to the left hand HOV lane of the highway.

Commentary:

A truism that all personal injury attorneys know is that an auto accident is not really an “accident”. Typically it is the result of someone being irresponsible or negligent in their driving. It is not an “accident” if you were texting and driving, reading, changing the radio, looking at someone and talking, driving while intoxicated, falling asleep at the wheel, or virtually doing anything that distracts you or keeps you from being able to competently and safely drive your vehicle. That is negligence. Plain and simple.

If you or a loved one have injured in an accident, or the results have been more tragic and there has been loss of life, you need to know what your rights are against that person who harmed you and your loved ones.

This is where a experienced, competent, and recognized attorney can help you in this time of trouble. We help to make things right for you and your family. Whether it be a negligent driver claim, a wrongful death claim, 18 wheeler accident, negligent entrustment, dram shop-liquor liability, or any other negligence based claim out there, you need someone who can not only identify your claims but pursue them. Not only pursue them, but pursue them vigilantly.

Don’t Sit Around and Let Medical Bills and Cost Mount, Call Today!

If you think you have a claim, don’t wait! You need to call today! The longer you wait, the more evidence begins to disappear, the more bills that pile up, and witnesses memories get foggy. In 18 wheeler accidents, we need to work fast to make sure that the black box has not been destroyed. Waiting too long can be devastating to your case.

In addition, the limitations period on personal injury cases in the state of Texas is two years. So many of our clients come in with only weeks until that time period ends, and that’s okay, but it means that we have to file suit immediately.
