Three Injured and One Dead in Trucking Accident Lubbock, TX

By Williams & Brown LLP on October 31, 2017

Lubbock, TX

On Tuesday, October 31th a multiple vehicle left three injured and one dead in Terry County.

A multiple-vehicle car crash happened around 4:30pm between a truck-tractor, semi-truck, and a minivan at the intersection of CR 200 and U.S. 385. The minivan driven by Martha Depoyster was traveling southbound on U.S. 385 when she reportedly drove across the center line into oncoming traffic. A semi moving northbound attempted to avoid the minivan but was hit broadside while swerving.

This multiple vehicle collision sent three children to the hospital, injures stable, and tragically killed Martha Depoyster. The cause of the initial crossover is unknown.

The wreck is under investigation.

Commentary

When someone loses their life in a car accident it is a tragedy. It can be easy to initially assign the blame of an accident like this on driver error because we don’t have all the facts, but the truth of the matter is there are so many other factors that could have led to an accident like this. Poor road conditions, mechanical failure, or other drivers can all be factors outside of the driver’s control that cause something like a crossover to occur.

These factors may not show up on an initial investigation. When someone loses their life or is seriously injured in a car wreck, it is important that a thorough investigation occurs by trained professionals.
