A fatal vehicle accident on Big Spring Street in Midland caused the death of one person last Friday night.
Just before 10:00 p.m., Midland responding officers were dispatched to the 300 block of North Big Spring Street following a crash report involving two vehicles. A sport utility vehicle was seen traveling along the northbound lane of the street when, for reasons that had not been determined, it traveled across the center line and onto the southbound lane where it collided head-on with another vehicle.
The force of the impact killed the driver of the SUV. His identification has not yet been released.
Investigators have yet to determine what caused the driver to drive the vehicle into the opposing lanes. They believed alcohol may have played a role in the accident.
The crash remains under investigation.

We believe that when someone loses a loved one from a car accident, they do not only suffer emotionally but financially as well. If you or your loved one is a victim of a car accident caused by wrongful actions or due to negligence, you may have the right to file for legal claims. Most of the time, families who are left behind after a tragic loss are not aware of their rights and the legal processes needed to obtain fair and just compensation. In times like this, you would need a professional who can provide you with all the support you need as you go through this difficult time. Talk to your personal injury or car accident lawyer for assistance.
According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of the day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. So that is about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone. Despite the government’s aggressive efforts to keep these cases down, Texas remains the worst state in the country for alcohol-involved car crashes.
