At least two people were sent to a hospital following a fatal car accident on U.S. 81/287 last Wednesday evening in Rhome.
Based on an initial investigation conducted by the Rhome Police Department, the collision involved a motorcycle and a Toyota passenger vehicle. Details surrounding the collision remain unclear at this time, but local police officers confirmed that an occupant in the Toyota, as well as the motorcyclist, sustained injuries from the impact. Emergency crews transported both victims to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth for treatment. The extent of their injuries was not immediately made public.
Authorities identified the victims as Weston Fesperman (motorcyclist) and Jose Gonzalez-Sanchez (Toyota occupant).
Aside from Rhome Police Department and Wise County EMS, Rhome Fire Department, Boyd Police Department and Texas Department of Public Safety were also dispatched to the crash.
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 Rhome 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.
