Galveston — 1 Dead After Fatal Crash on Highway 87

Posted on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019 at 11:50 pm    

On Monday afternoon, January 21, 2019, one person died after a fatal crash that occurred in Galveston County on Highway 87, near Bolivar Peninsula and Highway 124.

According to officials, the driver was traveling westbound on Highway 87 when he suddenly hit a construction vehicle. Unfortunately, the driver was pronounced dead subsequently after the crash.

As a result to this terrible accident, Highway 87 was closed for a few hours, and it was only opened around 9:30 in the evening.

It is unfortunate to hear of the passing of the unnamed driver. Sadly, he is not the first victim whose life is taken away by a car accident. Car accidents like this are alarmingly common in this day and age. In fact, in a statistics done by the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and there is always a car accident that results in death every 16 minutes. This can be translated to roughly about 6 million car accidents every year and about 90 people dying in car accidents every day just in the U.S. alone.

In addition to this, the NHTSA also reports that 15% of fatal car accidents occur near intersections, while the whopping 85% happen on the open road. This seemed to be the case for this particular vehicular accident.

If you are a victim of a vehicular accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, please don’t hesitate to ask for help. The police will always be there for you, but more than that, car accident attorneys are always willing to help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.
