STEPHENVILLE (November 26, 2015) — A single vehicle accident took the life of one Huston Academy student and nearly took the life of his brother.
According to DPS Sr. Trooper Dub Gilliam, unsafe speeds and wet roadways were to blame in the death of Quincy Ethan Edwards, 17, of Stephenville. His younger brother, Brayden Lane Edwards, 15, was also in the Dodge car and was taken by Erath County EMS to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital in Stephenville with life-threatening injuries.
Reports from the crash state, “the vehicle was headed northbound on US Highway 67, approximately five miles from the city limits, when the unsafe speed caused the vehicle to leave the roadway, striking a parked one-ton pickup truck. The driver was killed on impact.”
Accidents will happen, no matter how careful a driver you are or where you are. The best thing to do when driving is to expect the unexpected. Even if you are following the rules of the road perfectly. There only has to be one person speeding, one person not in control of their car for an accident to happen. Accidents can happen at any moment for whatever reason. For example, you might have experienced a rollover accident while in Spain (or as the Spanish would say “vuelco del vehiculo“).
This might not be something that you want to hear, but it is something that you have to understand. Getting into a car accident doesn’t always mean death. It can maybe just be a small bump to a bruise. The car might just take all the damage. That’s why if you ever get into a car accident that wasn’t your fault you may want to look into law firms like these car accident lawyers Burnaby. If a car crashes due to a distracted or intoxicated car driver then that is bad enough but if it is involving a car and a truck then the accident is even more serious. If you have been in an accident that involved a truck then you might want to take a look at using someone like these Norman truck accident lawyers to help you with your case. If you do decide to start up a lawsuit, then hopefully you’ll get the compensation that you deserve.
