Houston — Victim of Two-Car Crash on Gulf Freeway ID’d

Posted on Tuesday, March 26th, 2019 at 8:24 am    

The Houston Police Department has released the name of the man who died in a rollover collision on Gulf Freeway, Saturday morning.

The victim was identified as 25-year-old Juan Antonio Vasquez. He was operating one of the vehicles involved in the crash.

According to initial reports, the crash took place at around 4:30 a.m. A pickup truck was traveling along the southbound lanes when it collided with a Cadillac. A preliminary investigation indicates that the Cadillac was stalled in the middle of the freeway after it encountered a mechanical issue.

The impact of the collision killed the driver of the Cadillac, Juan Vasquez, with life-threatening injuries. He was pronounced by responding officers. The pickup driver was not hurt.

Police believe the driver of the truck did not see the stalled vehicle, and they do not believe alcohol was a factor.

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.
