Posted on Sunday, January 20th, 2019 at 11:53 pm    

A fatal car accident took the life of two people on Highway 103, last Friday morning.

Just after 10:00 a.m., the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to a major accident on Highway 103 near Farm to Market 1277. According to initial reports, a 2015 Chevy SUV was heading east on the highway when a 2002 Nissan vehicle drove into its path and struck it. The Nissan reportedly failed to give way at the intersection which caused the collision.

The 64-year-old driver of the Chevy, identified as Ireece Nutt, sustained injuries from the collision. She was rushed to a hospital in Lufkin with unknown injuries. Her condition remains unknown.

The Nissan driver and his passenger died from the impact. They were identified as 79-year-old Ronald Otis and 79-year-old Bobbie Otis. Authorities said that they were a couple from Broaddus.

The crash remains under investigation.

We express our deepest condolences to the family and relatives of the deceased victim. May God grant you the strength you need to get through this difficult moment in your life. We strongly believe that authorities will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.

According to statistics, at least one person dies from a car accident every two minutes. Most common causes of Texas car accidents include unsafe lane change, following too closely or tailgating, failing to yield, and speeding.

While on the road, it is important to avoid any form of distractions and be completely aware of our surroundings. We have to be reminded of how our choices while behind the wheel can affect other people’s lives.
