A deadly single-vehicle killed one person and injured another on State Highway 154 5.4 miles northwest of the city of Quitman.
According to the report released by the Texas Department of Public Safety, a 1995 Ford F-250 was heading southwest on SH 154 when it suddenly drifted to the right side of the road. When the driver, identified as Brett Alan Kennemer, 31, of Quitman, attempted to overcorrect, the vehicle ended up rolling a number of times and landed on the northbound ditch. Police said the pickup truck struck a driveway before coming to rest.
The impact of the collision ejected Kennemer from the vehicle. He was not wearing a seatbelt. His passenger, identified as Christian Diane Marshall, 22, of Weatherford, was hurt and transported to UT-Health in Tyler where she is in stable condition.
No one else was injured.
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.
