Posted on Friday, March 15th, 2019 at 5:08 am
At least three people were sent to a hospital after a head-on collision on US Highway 190, Tuesday afternoon.
The Texas Department of Public Safety troopers responded to a two-vehicle crash on US 190, five miles west of Jasper, after receiving a report of a wreck on said highway. According to initial reports, a 1998 Chevrolet pickup truck was traveling along the westbound lanes of the highway when it crossed over the center line and collided with a 2017 Chevrolet passenger car.
Two medical helicopters arrived at the scene to transfer injured victims to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Beaumont. Authorities identified the pickup driver as Anthony Wilson, 58, of Beaumont, while the driver of the passenger vehicle was named Emmalee Hopkins, 33, of Zavalla. Another female passenger was rushed to the same hospital via ambulance. Their conditions were not immediately known at this time.
The wreck is still under investigation by local police.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the friends and families of the injured victims. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the Jasper 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.
