According to initial reports, a red Dodge Ram was heading north on FM 491 when a Nissan Sentra, driven by Irma Cerda, drifted onto its path, resulting in a collision. The impact of the collision killed Cerda on scene. She was pronounced dead by emergency crews who responded to the crash.

Meanwhile, the driver driver of the Dodge was rushed to McAllen Medical Center for further care. The extent of his injuries remains unknown at this time.

No further details are available.

The crash remains under investigation.

We offer our sincerest sympathies to the family and friends of the deceased victim. May God grant you strength to go through this difficult time in your life. We also pray for a fast recovery of the injured driver. We believe that the Mercedes Police will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.

In the United States, Texas is one of the leading states in the number of traffic collisions involving fatalities. In fact, in 2015 alone, the state recorded more than 1,300 deaths caused by reckless drivers. Despite the government’s aggressive efforts to keep these cases down, Texas remains the worst state in the country for alcohol-involved car crashes.

If you have been involved in a car accident with a hit-and-run or reckless driver, the first thing you need to do is call the police. Once the investigation is completed, you can file a lawsuit against the suspected driver. A successful case could help you cover your medical expenses and compensate for your emotional and physical suffering. Speak with your personal injury lawyer to know more about your rights to fair compensation.
