New Caney – Truck vs Sedan Crash Leaves Woman Dead on FM 1485

Posted on Tuesday, August 13th, 2019 at 8:45 am    

A 64-year-old woman was pronounced deceased after the vehicle she’s driving collided with a truck on Farm to Market Road 1485 in New Caney, Saturday evening.

The fatality was identified as Irma DeLangel Gonzalez, 64.

According to initial reports, Gonzalez was driving a Toyota Corolla when a southbound F-150 pickup truck, for yet unknown reasons, drifted into her path and collided head-on with her Toyota. Police said that the pickup initially crossed the center turn lane and into the northbound lane where it struck the sedan. The impact of the crash trapped Gonzalez insider the wreckage. She had to be extricated by East Montgomery County Fire Department. Unfortunately, despite life-saving measures, she succumbed to her injuries at the scene.

The driver of the pickup truck, identified as Barry Lee Tarver of Cleveland, 51, was rushed to Conroe Regional Hospital where he was listed in stable condition.

Investigators have yet to determine the reason why Tarver crossed the center line.

We offer our sincerest sympathies to the family and friends of the deceased victim. May God grant you the strength to go through this difficult time in your life. We believe that the XXX 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.
