Angel Nazario Zamarripa from San Angelo, Texas died from fatal injuries sustained in a car accident. According to reports, the accident occurred at about 2 AM on U.S. 87 north near the Grape Creek Road intersection. A Hyundai Elantra was travelling north in the southbound lanes when it collided head-on with a Chevrolet Malibu who was travelling the other way. The driver of the Hyundai was 18-year-old Jamie Celeste Sawyer from San Angelo. The driver of the Malibu was 21-year-old Angel Zamarripa.
There were three victims in total, including a passenger in the Malibu, Vicktoria Marie Williamson, 19, of San Angelo. Zamarripa died from fatal injuries while Williamson and Sawyer were taken to the hospital and are in serious condition.
Law enforcement believes that it is too early to state whether drunk driving is the cause of this accident.
Was the cause of the accident drunk driving? If it wasn’t, why was the driver of the Hyundai driving in the completely wrong direction on a highway at 2 o’clock in the morning? Perhaps the passenger of the Malibu or the families of those who were in the Malibu may want to file a wrongful death claim.
As you can imagine, fatal car accidents are not uncommon in Texas.
There were three victims in a car crash in northeast Dallas. Two women were killed and a third grievously injured. Law enforcement believes that a Chevrolet Impala crossed the center median lane and drove into the way of a Toyota Camry at the intersection of Jupiter Road and Northwest Highway at around 7 AM. Those in the Chevrolet died from the injuries sustained in the accident. The driver of the Toyota was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
The cause of the accident is yet unknown.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the victims of these accidents and their families and communities. We imagine that they were deeply impacted by the tragedy. We understand that they may have many questions.
Was the driver of the Chevrolet paying attention? Did they misjudge the amount of time it would take to cross the desired distance? Since it was early in the morning, is it possible that the drivers could not see each other? Were their headlights on? Did the driver of the Chevrolet use their turn signal?
