Around 4:20 p.m. on January 9, 2019, two vehicles collided in northeast Harris County, which then resulted to 1 death and 2 injuries.
According to the officials of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, the 2-vehicle crash happened near FM 2100 and Fairway Crossings Drive, and upon their arrival on the scene, they discovered a man, later identified as David Moser who was a driver in one of the cars, dead.
Two other victims in the other vehicle, who are unnamed juveniles, were also injured and rushed to the nearby hospital.
Deputies said that around 4:20 p.m., Moser was driving a Jeep Patriot, heading west on Fairway Crossing Drive, approaching FM 2100. He stopped at a stop sign and turned left, thus crossing in front of a Jeep Wrangler heading north. Instantly, the Wrangler hit Moser’s car, and Moser died from his injuries.
Deputies claimed that the Wrangler had the right of way; there was no stop sign on the cross traffic where the Jeep Wrangler was driving. The intersection only had the stop sign on Fairway Crossings Drive.
Despite the error on Moser’s part, it is still unfortunate to hear of his death. However, vehicular accidents likes this occur quite often on a daily basis. According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. So that is roughly 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 85% of fatal car accidents happen on the open road while 15% happen near intersections, which is the case for this particular vehicular accident.
