The Liberty County officials have released the names of the victims who died in a collision on Farm to Market 163 Road in Tarkington Prairie, reports say.
Last January 23, a major wreck has been reported near FM 163 and CR 2282 at around 7:00 p.m. When local officers arrived at the scene, two vehicles somehow collided which resulted in three fatalities and three more injuries.
The three victims who died were identified as Mark Henson, 16-year-old Jessee Henson, and a 4-year-old Lilly. The boy was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital via Life Flight but was pronounced dead on the way to the hospital.
Three more occupants were rushed to a hospital for treatment. Their identification was not released.
The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating the collision.
Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of the deceased victims. We are hoping and praying for a fast recovery of both parties.
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 increase 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. 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.
