Posted on Tuesday, February 26th, 2019 at 3:37 am    

A 25-year-old Forney man passed away following a fatal head-on crash State Highway 34 near Farm-to-Market (FM) 1390, in between Scurry and Rosser, last February 19.

At around 4:00 p.m., the Texas Department of Public Safety officials were requested on SH 34 for a major crash involving two vehicles. According to their initial investigation, a yellow Chevrolet pickup truck was heading north on the highway when it collided with an oncoming Chevrolet Camaro that was traveling along the southbound lanes. Authorities are yet to release which vehicles drifted on the wrong lane.

The force of impact killed the driver of the Chevy pickup truck. He was identified by police as 25-year-old James Fortner of Forney, Texas.

The driver of the Camaro and two occupants, only identified as children, sustained various injuries. The children were rushed to Children’s Medical Center of Dallas while the driver was taken to Dallas Presbyterian Hospital for treatment. Their injuries were considered non-life threatening.

We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the families and relatives of the injured victims. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the Forney Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.

Sometimes, a car accident can cause serious injuries to multiple parties and that filing an insurance claim for injury compensation after an accident can get complicated. To ensure that you are properly compensated, you would need to gather enough evidence and documents that will support your claim. You also want to file this with either your insurance provider or the insurer of the responsible party as soon as possible. It could be details pertaining to the accident you are involved in or legal records of the extent of injuries you sustained. These may include a video of the scene or a photograph of the damages to the vehicles, police reports stating the facts of the accident, and medical records indicating the severity of your injury, to name a few.
