Posted on Friday, August 9th, 2019 at 6:37 am
A suspected speeding collision killed a teenage driver on US 287, southeast of Clarendon, according to a local news source.
DPS officials said that the incident occurred on the northwest lane of the highway last August 3. A preliminary investigation indicates that a 2006 Chevrolet Z-71 was traveling along the highway when, for reasons that had not yet been determined, it drifted into the center median, across a cross over, and hit a post. The truck then overturned, struck a large tree and ended up upside down in the center median.
The force of the impact threw the driver, identified only as a 14-year-old Amarillo driver, off the vehicle. He was pronounced deceased at the scene. Her two passengers sustained various injuries and were transported to a hospital in Amarillo where they received medical treatment.
No identification has been released at this time.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the friends and families of the injured victims. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the Donley County Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
Injuries caused by vehicle collisions can vary from crash to crash. Some injuries may heal within a span of days while others could paralyze a victim’s body for a month. The most commonly known car accident injuries include neck and chest and head and back injuries. Broken and ligament damages are also quite common.
Sometimes, a car accident can cause serious injuries to multiple parties—and filing a claim can get complicated. To make sure your claim is successful, you need to gather supporting evidence and documents that can back up your claim. It could be a detailed account of the accident you are involved in or documents indicating the extent of injuries you sustained. These may include a video or photograph of the scene, police reports, and medical records, to name a few.
