Man crashes truck into police car, firetruck

Police authorities reported that 26-year-old Armando Rodriguez crashed his truck into a parked patrol car last Monday, March 23 along Interstate 35W at Golden Triangle Boulevard in Fort Worth, Texas.

Rodriguez’s truck overturned and rested squarely on top of the police cruiser, damaging it extensively. Fortunately, the police cruiser was unoccupied when the accident happened. The patrol car was then forced into a nearby fire truck, injuring three firefighters. The firefighters were brought to Harris Methodist Hospital to treat their neck and back pains.

Rodriguez was thereafter taken into police custody for traffic safety violations which included failure to vacate a lane and failure to control speed to avoid collision. Police suspect that he was intoxicated at the time of the accident and are awaiting the results of a blood test.

One dies in Dallas-Fort Worth airport car accident

A man who was yet to be identified by police authorities was killed in a car accident on October 31 along the Texas State Highway 183 near the south entrance to the Dallas/Fort Worth airport, the Star-Telegram reported.

According to preliminary investigations, the operator of a Chevrolet sedan was traveling westbound along the highway at around 6:50 p.m. when he suddenly swerved left across traffic lanes, eventually colliding with a Chrysler and sliding along a highway barrier. The Chevrolet driver was killed in the incident. The driver of the Chrysler was brought to a local hospital to treat the victim’s non-life-threatening wounds, a police spokeswoman reported. Neither vehicle held any passengers.

The westbound lanes of Texas 183 were temporarily closed to traffic to contain the situation and were resumed to public use at around midnight.

The attorneys of the Woodson Law Firm extend their sincere condolences to the friends and family suffering during this difficult time.

Teenage boy dies in Grand Prairie car accident

A 13-year-old boy, identified by police authorities as Carson Parr, was killed after sustaining mortal injuries in a motor vehicle accident on August 1 in Grand Prairie, The Dallas Morning News reported.

Police investigators said Parr was thrown out of the back window of a 1999 Honda Civic that was heading south on New York Avenue. The vehicle he rode in, which was driven by Parson’s 17-year-old sister, Allie Parr, did not stop at a red light on State Highway 360, and it was struck by an armored car.

The younger Carson was airlifted to the Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth. He died at 1:20 p.m. the day after the accident. The siblings’ 39-year-old mother, Teddi Parr, was also in the vehicle when the accident occurred; she was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth the same day for treatment of her non-life-threatening injuries. The two armored car passengers were not injured. Investigation continues to discern the details surrounding the crash.

Efforts to relax trucking laws opposed by family of trucking accident victims

The family of the North Texas teens who died last year when an 18-wheeler struck their vehicle is fighting against the proposal of lawmakers in Washington, D.C. to relax trucking laws in the country, KDFW Fox 4 reported on June 16.

Police investigation regarding the accident that killed 17-year old AnnaLeah Karth and 13-year-old Mary Karth  showed that the truck driver who hit the Karths’ vehicle was fatigued from long hours driving, which the police said can be as serious as driving drunk.

A point of contention in United States trucking laws is the number of hours truckers can drive at a time. Truckers frequently work twice the hours that an average person does, and citizens are concerned that fatigued drivers are more likely to cause accidents.
