Anastasia Elizabeth Hillard died in a head-on car accident in Tyler, Texas. Jesus Gonzales and Rodolfo Mendoza were injured in the accident also. This unfortunate incident occurred on November 18, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially if the truck that veered over is shown to be at fault.
Hillard was traveling north down SSW Loop 323 in her car. Gonzales was driving a truck in the opposite lane with Mendoza as the passenger. Suddenly, Gonzales veered over the median and into the lane Hillard was in. Gonzales’ car collided head-on with Hillard’s vehicle. Gonzales and Mendoza, had to be carried to the hospital. Their condition is not known. Hillard died as a result of her injuries. Our hearts and prayers go out to Hillard’s family and friends.
This car crash is truly saddening and it leaves so many questions. Why did Gonzales cross the median? Was Gonzales under the influence? Was Gonzales distracted? What are the other factors that are not being reported?
Police are still investigating into the cause of the accident. Although the police are looking for more information, they cannot always be fully relied upon. 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.
