Austin Rodgers died in a car accident with a train in Pampa, Texas. Daniel Ortiz died in the accident as well. The fatal incident occurred on March 3, 2016. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
According to reports, Ortiz was driving a vehicle on and Rodgers was his passenger. The author believes Ortiz went around a train stop barrier at the Starkweather intersection. Reports indicate that this was when Ortiz’s vehicle was hit by a train. Ortiz and Rodgers both died as a result of the extreme injuries they sustained. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to the family and friends of those involved
It is always sad to hear about fatal car accidents, and this accident is equally as sad. The roads are always a place where unpredictable moments take place. That is why driving safely is so important.
Why did the driver reportedly go around the train stop barrier? Was the driver distracted? Are there any other factors missing from this report?
Although the police are doing their own investigating, 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.
