Angie Neldine Smith of Longview, Texas was involved in a fatal single-vehicle accident. Law enforcement believes that the accident occurred at around 12:30 AM in the 1600 block of George Richey Road. Smith was driving a Chevy Trailblazer. Police believe that that the car veered off of the road and landed in the front yard of a home. The car hit a tree forcefully. Smith died from the injuries she sustained in the accident. The cause of the accident is unknown as of yet.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the victim’s family. We imagine that they may have many questions. What may have caused the accident? Was there a vehicle malfunction? Did the driver fall asleep at the wheel? Was this a case of distracted driving?
Car accidents are not uncommon in Texas.
Reports coming out of Houston state that a Harris County sheriff’s deputy was injured in a car accident while on duty. The deputy was driving towards a chase area in order to catch a car thief. On the way to the area, a car pulled out from a side street, causing the deputy to swerve in order to avoid it. This caused the deputy’s car to veer off the road and crash into a power pole. The car rolled over and crashed into a few trees. The deputy was injured but not grievously so. We sincerely hope that the deputy will have a speedy recovery.
