Weatherford – Justin Mills Seriously Injured Following FM 51 Collision

Posted on Friday, March 8th, 2019 at 1:31 am    

The Weatherford local authorities have identified the victim was fatally injured in a vehicle collision on Farm to Market 51 Road near Veal Station Road, according to a local news source.

The victim was identified as Justin Taylor Mills. He was a 21-year-old driver from Azle.

A preliminary investigation shows that Mills was driving a 1996 Ford Ranger pickup along the southbound lanes of FM 51 when he failed to negotiate a curve and drifted to the side of the road. After trying to overcorrect, his vehicle then traveled across the southbound and northbound lanes where his vehicle was struck by a tractor-trailer on its side. According to local responders, the truck was a 2013 Peterbilt truck tractor that was towing a flatbed trailer.

Emergency crews airlifted the pickup driver to John Peter Smith Hospital for treatment. He was later identified as Justin Mills. Luckily, the driver of Peterbilt, 41, of Atoka, Oklahoma, was not injured.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the injured victims. We strongly believe that the Weatherford Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.

Texas is among the states in the US that have the most car accidents which involved injuries and fatalities every year. Some of the common factors contributing to the rising cases of collisions in the area include the worsening traffic situation, weather conditions, and poor driving habits.

Bad driving habits are the greatest cause of a fatal crash. It can be lethal to the person behind the wheel, as well as the drivers on the road. Drivers who do not use their signal to change lanes or those who do not secure their blind spots before shifting direction are more likely to be involved in an accident. Some of the most dangerous driving habits include speeding, unsafe lane change, tailgating, and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you or someone you love has been a victim of a car accident with a negligent driver, you have a right to fair compensation for the trauma you experienced and the injuries you have suffered.
