According to a local news source, the victim of the fatal wrong-way collision on East Ledbetter Drive in South Dallas last Monday was a former Dallas City Council Member.
At around 7:45 p.m., responding officers arrived at the 2400 block of East Ledbetter Drive to assist in a collision. A preliminary investigation shows that a sedan and a sports utility vehicle were involved with one of them going on the opposite side of the road. The impact of the collision killed one person who was identified as Carolyn Davis.
Three people sustained unknown injuries and were rushed to an area hospital for treatment. Their identification has not yet been released at this time.
No one else was injured.
Investigators believed that speed may have played a factor in the crash.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the friends and families of the deceased victim. We also pray for the full recovery of the injured parties as we hope that the Dalllas 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.
