Corpus Christi, TX – 1 Dead and 1 Injured in Fatal DUI Crash on Holly Road
Corpus Christi, TX (April 7, 2019) – On the early morning of April 7th, a fatal DUI crash happened at the intersection of Holly Road and Everhart Road. According to the reports, a vehicle ran a red light and crashed into another vehicle around 3:00 a.m. The impact of the accident caused a man in his 20s to eject from his vehicle and land onto the pavement.
When the paramedics arrived, they transported the injured man to a local hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, he died at the hospital. Another man in his 40s sustained injuries and was also transported to a nearby hospital.
The accident is currently under investigation, but the police confirmed that it appears some contributing factors were a failure to give the right of way, alcohol, and speed.
We send our condolences to the deceased man’s family at this time. We hope the other injured man fully recovers from all injuries.
DUI Accidents in Texas
Some of the leading causes of all fatal accidents in Texas include driving under the influence, speeding, and violating traffic laws. Those who are under the influence are more likely to speed and violate traffic laws because they stop gaining a sense of the reality around them and don’t realize how fast they’re going. For those who have sustained injuries or lost loved ones in DUI accidents, it’s important to contact a personal injury car accident or wrongful death attorney for help.
