A Friday morning crash which involved multiple vehicles on Texas 359 caused the death of one person, a local news source said.
According to the report released by the Laredo Police Department, the incident took place on Highway 359 near the Laredo Flea Market. How the crash happened was not immediately determined by responding officers but it was confirmed that two cars and a trailer somehow collided with each other. When emergency crews arrived at the scene, they found one person still trapped inside the wreckage. They had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate the victim.
Based on a preliminary investigation, one of the vehicles involved ignored a red signal which prompted a collision with a tractor-trailer.
Both east and westbound lanes were temporarily closed to give way for clearing and investigation.
No further details are available at this time.
We believe that when someone loses a loved one from a car accident, they do not only suffer emotionally but financially as well. If you or your loved one is a victim of a car accident caused by wrongful actions or due to negligence, you may have the right to file for legal claims. Most of the time, families who are left behind after a tragic loss are not aware of their rights and the legal processes needed to obtain fair and just compensation. In times like this, you would need a professional who can provide you with all the support you need as you go through this difficult time. Talk to your personal injury or car accident lawyer for assistance.
According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of the day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. So that is about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone. Despite the government’s aggressive efforts to keep these cases down, Texas remains the worst state in the country for alcohol-involved car crashes.
