A 24-year-old woman dies after getting involved in a car accident at the intersection of Texas 274 and US 175 over the weekend.
Last Sunday, local emergency crews responded to a pond near Texas 274 after a witness reported a crash at around 3:00 p.m. When police officers arrived at the scene, a 2019 Volkswagen Jetta was found in a pond which was then retrieved with the driver’s body still inside. How the crash exactly happened is yet to be determined by the Texas Department of Public Safety.
The driver was later identified as 24-year-old Kaitlin Leanne Lawrence. According to reports, she worked at Subway where she was a manager.
Anyone who has information relevant to the case is encouraged to get in touch the Texas DPS officials.
Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of the deceased victim.
Car collisions are extremely prevalent in Texas. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, one person is getting injured in approximately two minutes. Unfortunately, despite the government’s aggressive efforts to educate drivers about safety, the cases of speeding, driving under the influence, and negligence are still on the rise. In fact, most of the common causes of accidents in the state are due to the driver’s lack of awareness and precaution.
Knowing the statistics helps us to be more aware of how our choices can affect other people’s lives. For instance, driving while under the influence of alcohol and illegal drugs dramatically increases your risk of being involved in a crash by roughly 16% and 24%, respectively. While these cases are extremely dangerous, these can be prevented by making the right decisions. So before hitting the road, know that car accidents leave scars and trauma that can be devastating for the victims. For this reason, it is important that you take all the necessary precautions to avoid it.
