The Plainview Police Department is investigating a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 27 which caused injuries to two people, Monday morning.
According to officials, the incident happened at the Panhandle Popcorn building, in the 1300 block of South I-27. A truck was heading north on the highway when it crossed the center median, traveled through the southbound lanes, and struck a parked car. The vehicle then crashed into a storage shed and a dumpster before coming to a complete stop at the establishment.
The driver of the truck, identified as 50-year-old Joeshannon Leroy White, was taken to Covenant Plainview with minor injuries. Meanwhile, a person inside the building was transported to UMC in Lubbock via AeroCare with incapacitating injuries. She was identified as 50-year-old Jill Marie Degon.
Based on a preliminary investigation, White’s vehicle had a blowout prior to the accident.
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the friends and families of the injured victims. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the Plainview 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.
Sometimes, a car accident can cause serious injuries to multiple parties—and filing a claim can get complicated. To make sure your claim is successful, you need to gather supporting evidence and documents that can back up your claim. It could be a detailed account of the accident you are involved in or documents indicating the extent of injuries you sustained. These may include a video or photograph of the scene, police reports, and medical records, to name a few.
