The Bastrop Police Department has released the name of the high school student who died in a car accident on Texas 95 on Sunday.

The fatality was identified as 18-year-old Bailey Butler. She was a resident in Bastrop.

A preliminary investigation shows that Butler was driving a 2008 Chevy Cobalt along the southbound lanes of Texas 95 near Mesquite Street. For some reasons, Butler veered onto oncoming lanes and crashed into a 2011 GMC Sierra truck.

Butler was killed by the force of impact. The driver of the GMC Sierra, identified as 47-year-old Danni Anderson, sustained minor injuries and was taken to St. David’s hospital for treatment. Anderson is expected to recover.

Police have not released more details surrounding the crash as the investigation is still in progress.

We express our deepest condolences to the family and relatives of the deceased victim. May God grant you the strength you need to get through this difficult moment in your life. We strongly believe that authorities will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.

According to statistics, at least one person dies from a car accident every two minutes. Most common causes of Texas car accidents include unsafe lane change, following too closely or tailgating, failing to yield, and speeding.

Bad driving habits are the greatest cause of a fatal crash. It can be lethal to the person behind the wheel, as well as the drivers on the road. Drivers who do not use their signal to change lanes or those who do not secure their blind spots before shifting direction are more likely to be involved in an accident. Some of the most dangerous driving habits include speeding, unsafe lane change, tailgating, and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you or someone you love has been a victim of a car accident with a negligent driver, you have a right to fair compensation for the trauma you experienced and the injuries you have suffered.
