A deadly vehicle crash on Highway 81 took the lives of three people and injured one person in Bowie, Saturday night.
The fatalities were identified as 29-year-old Andrew Gardener, 29-year-old Bobbi Johnson, and 72-year-old James Dewveal.
According to initial reports, Gardener was driving a 2015 Chevy Cruz along the northbound lanes of Highway 81 when, for reasons that had not yet been determined, it crossed the center line and crashed into a southbound 2015 Nissan Pathfinder. The impact of the collision killed Gardner, his passenger, Bobbi Johnson, and an occupant in the Pathfinder, James Dewveal.
Another occupant in the Pathfinder, identified as Kay Deweall, sustained serious injuries from the collision. She was immediately taken to JPS Hospital for treatment. Her condition was not disclosed at this time.
No further details were released as the investigation is still in progress.
With sincerest sympathies, we would like to express our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased. We strongly believe that the Bowie Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
Some of the deadliest counties for car accidents in Texas are Harris, Dallas, and Tarrant. Among the 620,000 reported fatalities and injuries in the state, more than 4,000 cases were caused by a driver traveling at an unsafe speed.
Meanwhile, operators who tested positive for some type of drug are responsible for more than 500 cases that resulted in injuries.
