Posted on Monday, February 4th, 2019 at 12:04 am    

At least one person was pronounced dead after getting struck by a vehicle on State Highway 36, three miles north of Bellville, last Friday morning.

The fatal crash took place at around 12:15 a.m. According to police reports, a man was standing on the northbound lanes of SH 36 when a passing a 2011 Nissan Rogue struck him. The impact of the collision killed the pedestrian at the scene. He was identified as 25-year-old Jonah Spahn.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as 58-year-old Maria Villarreal of Brenham. It was not confirmed if she sustained injuries from the crash.

Investigators have yet to determine why Spahn was standing at the middle of the highway but based on a preliminary investigation, conditions were foggy and roads were wet during the time of the accident.

No charges were made at this time.

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.

Car collisions are extremely prevalent in Texas. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, one person is getting injured in approximately two minutes. Unfortunately, despite the government’s aggressive efforts to educate drivers about safety, the cases of speeding, driving under the influence, and negligence are still on the rise. In fact, most of the common causes of accidents in the state are due to the driver’s lack of awareness and precaution.

Knowing the statistics helps us to be more aware of how our choices can affect other people’s lives. For instance, driving while under the influence of alcohol and illegal drugs dramatically increases your risk of being involved in a crash by roughly 16% and 24%, respectively. While these cases are extremely dangerous, these can be prevented by making the right decisions. So before hitting the road, know that car accidents leave scars and trauma that can be devastating for the victims. For this reason, it is important that you take all the necessary precautions to avoid it.
