A fatal car accident on Interstate Highway 20 took the life of one person last Monday night, a local news source says.

At around 1:00 a.m., local officers were requested at I-20 near East Loop 338 following a major wreck. According to initial investigation, a silver 2013 Ford Escape was heading east on the highway when, for yet unknown reasons, it rear-ended a white 2002 Nissan Altima. The impact of the collision killed the Nissan driver instantly. He was identified as Gerald Winsor.

The Ford driver was identified as 48-year-old Johnny Cochran II. He did not sustain any injury from the impact.

Investigators arrived at the scene to determine liability and the factors that led to the crash.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the family of the deceased victim. We strongly believe that the Odessa Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.

Injuries caused by vehicle collisions can vary from crash to crash. Some injuries may heal within a span of days while others could paralyze a victim’s body for a month. The most commonly known car accident injuries include neck and chest and head and back injuries. Broken and ligament damages are also quite common.
Being a victim of a collision is an overwhelming experience. If you are a passenger in a car involved in crash, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention for yourself and anyone who needs it. After this, you’ll want to alert your insurance provider regarding damages or injuries you sustained from the collision. To submit a claim, you would need to gather documents supporting your claim. These may include a video of the scene or a photograph of the damages to the vehicles, police reports stating the facts of the accident, and medical records indicating the severity of your injury, to name a few.
