The Texas Department of Public Safety has named the man who died in a fatal car accident on Farm to Market Road 95 north of Mount Enterprise, last Monday night.
According to reports, a vehicle driven by Johnny Ray Taylor Jr., 24, was seen heading northwest on FM 95 when it failed to navigate a slight curve as it approaches a hilltop and went off the roadway. The car then traveled through the grass and crashed into a large tree before coming to rest.
Taylor sustained life-threatening injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by Rusk County Pct. 3 Justice of the Peace Jackie Risinger and taken to Crawford-A. Crim Funeral Home in Henderson. Meanwhile, a female passenger, identified only as a 15-year-old girl was rushed to Christus Mother Frances Hospital where she received medical treatment. Authorities said that she was listed in serious condition.
An investigation is still underway.
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.
