Texas Department of Public Safety officials recently named the person who was hospitalized following a fatal vehicle crash on State Highway 154 in Wood County.
The victim was identified as Christian Diane Marshall, 22, of Weatherford.
According to initial reports, the incident happened just after 9:00 p.m. 5.4 miles northwest of the city of Quitman in Wood County. Police said that a 1995 Ford F-250 pickup truck was seen traveling along SH 154 when, for reasons that had not been determined yet, it suddenly drifted to the right side of the road. When the driver tried to overcorrect, the truck ended up in the northbound ditch after hitting a driveway and overturning a number of times.
The driver was ejected following the crash. He was pronounced deceased by Judge Parker and was taken to Lowes Funeral Home in Quitman. His passenger, Christian Marshall, was rushed to UT Health where he was listed in stable condition.
No other injuries were reported.
An investigation has begun.
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 Wood 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.
