Posted on Thursday, February 14th, 2019 at 4:36 am    

The Lubbock Police Department is looking into a car accident that happened on 27th Street, Monday midnight.

Just after 2:00 a.m., police officers were alerted of a wreck in the 5100 block of 27th Street near Slide Road. Based on a preliminary investigation, it appears that a Dodge Stratus went out of control as it heads north on the 2700 block of Slide Road. The Dodge then struck a boulder, traveled across the sidewalk where it crashed into two vehicles parked nearby. Two more vehicles were damaged from the impact of the collision.

The driver of the vehicle, who is also the sole occupant, sustained serious injuries and was immediately taken to EMS to University Medical Center for treatment. He was only identified as a 24-year-old male driver.

Fortunately, no one else was hurt.

Investigators are determining the factors that led to the crash.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of the injured 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 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.
