Posted on Wednesday, July 31st, 2019 at 11:12 am    

A solo-vehicle accident which took place on Interstate 20 in Southwest Odessa leaves one person dead, early Sunday morning.

Just before 6:00 a.m., Odessa police officers received a notification of a crash on I-20 near Farm to Market Road 1936. A preliminary investigation indicates that a black Ford F-150 pickup truck was seen on the westbound lanes when, for reasons that had not been determined yet, it traveled through all traffic lanes, and struck a median barrier. The truck continued on, overturned a number of times, ejecting its driver in the process.

The driver, identified only as a 25-year-old resident of Kermit, was pronounced deceased by the Ector County Medical Examiner.

No other vehicles were involved, as per responding officials.

The Odessa Police Department arrived at the scene to investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash.

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.
