Billy Howard was hurt and Robert Clemenson was killed in a car crash in Bowie County, Texas. This fatal incident occurred on the night of November 1, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially if evidence proves that the truck driver was at fault.
Billy Ray Howard was driving his truck on County Road 1379. Robert Clemenson was driving a tanker containing fuel on Highway 59 in an area that was under construction. Howard turned onto Highway 59 in front of Clemenson’s tanker and collided with it. Clemenson’s tanker flipped over and rolled before catching on fire. Howard was taken to the hospital for treatment for his injuries. Clemenson died at the scene as a result of his critical injuries. 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 safety and adhering to the road signage is very important. It is also important to proceed with caution in areas under construction.
Although the police have their own reports, 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.
