Duval County, TX – 4 Killed and 3 Injured in Vehicle Accident on Farm-to-Market 339
Duval County, TX (March 24, 2019) On the afternoon of March 24th, a fatal vehicle accident happened on Farm-to-Market 339, just north of Concepcion.
According to the reports, a black SUV containing undocumented occupants was traveling on the road when a Duval County deputy officer attempted to pull the vehicle over. The driver chose to speed off and turn on County Road 245, which caused him to lose control of the vehicle. The SUV flipped over and landed on its side, ejecting some of the passengers out of the vehicle.
When emergency crews arrived, they found one man trapped inside of the SUV and extricated him. Unfortunately, three of the men and one woman suffered fatal injuries at the scene. Three other injured victims were transported to a nearby hospital via an emergency helicopter. Two of the injured victims are in suffering from serious injuries.
We would like to offer our sincerest condolences to the deceased victims’ families. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Texas
Unfortunately, statistics reveal that one person was killed every two hours in Texas in 2017. Most fatal accidents are a result of negligent driving, which includes reckless driving, distracted driving, drunk driving, and fatigued driving. Because negligence doesn’t have to occur, most vehicle accidents could be prevented if drivers made better choices on the road.
