Longview law enforcement officials have identified the two victims who were sent to a hospital after a vehicle collision on West Loop 281 last August 6th.
The injured parties were identified as Victor Velasquez, 28, and Jenny Ledesma Resendiz, 21.
According to initial reports, Velasquez and Resendiz were in a southbound 2005 Toyota Camry when it collided with a 2004 Dodge truck that was heading northwest on West Loop 281. Police said that the Dodge was avoiding another vehicle but ended up hitting the Camry. The force of the impact sent the Camry into the path of a 2014 Nissan Altima.
As a result, Velasquez and Resendiz, and a one-year-old passenger sustained injuries. They were transported to the nearest hospital for treatment. Another child was airlifted to a hospital in Dallas with fatal injuries. His condition was not immediately disclosed.
We offer our sincerest sympathies to the family and friends of those who sustained fatal injuries. May God grant you the strength to go through this difficult time in your life. We believe that the Longview Police will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.
In the United States, Texas is one of the leading states in the number of traffic collisions involving fatalities. In fact, in 2015 alone, the state recorded more than 1,300 deaths caused by reckless drivers. Despite the government’s aggressive efforts to keep these cases down, Texas remains the worst state in the country for alcohol-involved car crashes.
If you have been involved in a car accident with a hit-and-run or reckless driver, the first thing you need to do is call the police. Once the investigation is completed, you can file a lawsuit against the suspected driver. A successful case could help you cover your medical expenses and compensate for your emotional and physical suffering. Speak with your personal injury lawyer to know more about your rights to fair compensation.
