Tarrant County Crash Ends Three Lives
High-speed highways are convenient in many ways. They allow us to travel efficiently. They grow business and trade, and–generally–they are safer than smaller country roads.
But when things go wrong on a high-speed highway, especially one with medium or heavy traffic, the results can be catastrophic, for you and your family.
Last Monday, a woman lost control of her vehicle, resulting in the loss of her own life and that of her two small children.
Apparently, she was traveling east on Texas 199, driving her 2007 Ford Edge. Her two children, aged 7 and 4, were in the vehicle with her.
A moment of surprise, as a 2017 GMC pickup suddenly slowed to turn, catching the mother, 25, off guard. It seems she tried to swerve to the left, but too late as she stuck the GMC anyway.
Now out of control, the Edge spun clockwise into the westbound lane of Texas 199. A 2016 Ford F-150 was heading west, and it struck the Edge.
The 25-year-old woman and her two children were killed in the accident, as the pickup struck the passenger compartment at high speed.
The driver of the Ford F-150, 72 years old, was transported to a Fort Worth area hospital with undisclosed injuries.
In the blink of an eye, this three-vehicle collision in Tarrant County, ended the lives of three, caused unknown injuries, in addition to costly vehicular damage.
