At least two people, including a child, died after getting involved in a solo-vehicle collision on State Highway 121, northeast of McKinney Monday night.
At around 7:30 p.m., local emergency crews responded to SH 121 near Anna after receiving a call reporting a car accident. According to initial reports, a Chevrolet Camaro was traveling along the northbound lanes of SH 121 when, according to one of the witnesses, it lost control after attempting to overtake another car. The Camaro then veered off the roadway and eventually crashed into a tree.
The impact of the collision killed the driver and his passenger. They were both residents of Whitewright.
Officials from the Texas Department of Public Saftey were called onto the scene to determine what caused the driver to lose control.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the friends and families of the victims. May God grant you the strength you need to get through this difficult moment in your life.
In Texas, car collisions happen on a regular basis. Most of the time, these events result in injuries and fatalities. Victims involved in crashes are left to deal with life-threatening injuries, damages to property, and worse—emotional trauma. While accidents are fortuitous events that cannot be foreseen, they can be prevented if only drivers had simply put their complete attention on the road and taken their responsibility as drivers more seriously. This is why, despite conscious efforts by government to combat the increasing number of fatalities and injuries every year, crashes due to negligence is still on the rise.
Most of the time, families who are left behind after a tragic loss are not aware of their rights and the legal processes needed to obtain fair and just compensation. In times like this, you would need a professional who can provide you with all the support you need as you go through this difficult time.
