Bogata—Teens Died on Highway 37 Collision

Posted on Monday, February 18th, 2019 at 12:08 am    

At least two teenagers lost their lives after getting involved in a car accident on Texas Highway 37 last Friday afternoon.

According to initial reports, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to a collision at around 3:30 p.m. Two vehicles, identified as 1997 one-ton pickup and three-quarter ton Dodge pickup, were heading north on the highway when they somehow collided. A preliminary investigation shows that one of the vehicles involved unexpectedly took a U-turn slot in the middle of the highway which may have caused the crash. However, this has not been confirmed by local authorities.

Both drivers of the vehicles, 17-year-old Brandon Earley of Reno and 18-year-old Kolby Fletcher, were pronounced dead at the scene. They were reportedly Rivercrest ISD students, as per reports.

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.

We believe that when someone loses a loved one from a car accident, they do not only suffer emotionally but financially as well. If you or your loved one is a victim of a car accident caused by wrongful actions or due to negligence, you may have the right to file for legal claims. 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. Talk to your personal injury or car accident lawyer for assistance.

According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of the day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. So that is about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone. Furthermore, the NHTSA also reports that 15% of fatal car accidents happen near intersections while the whopping 85% happen on the open road, which is the case for  this particular vehicular accident.
