Sarah Ryan, Ryan, and Carl Hammerly are dead after a head-on crash in Lufkin, Texas. The incident occurred on October 26, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially if evidence proves that the other driver was at fault.
Carl Hammerly was driving on Highway 103 and tried to cut in front of another car by briefly driving in the other lane. He ended up colliding head-on with a car driving the opposite direction. Hammerly ended up passing away because of his critical injuries. Sarah Ryan and her husband, Ryan, were in the car that he collided with head-on and they both died as well. Our hearts and prayers go out to their family and friends.
It is always sad to hear about car collisions, and this accident is equally as sad. The roads are always a place where unpredictable moments take place. That is why it is important to always drive safe and properly estimate actions before taking them.
Did Hammerly not see the car of the Ryan’s? Was he passing in a passing allowed zone?
There are some questions that may still need answers and some actions that may need explanations. Personal injury lawyers do not always rely on the police reports. They often hire private investigators to find the answers to additional questions. Investigators often obtain helpful information that is not included in the police report, information that family members sometimes want to know.
The facts of this case may support a wrongful death lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death lawsuits.
