Karol Rank died in a Tyler, Texas car accident. Ted Rank and Skyler Harper also died in the crash. Adam Ward and Anthony Rankin were also hurt in the collision. The unfortunate incident occurred on May 7, 2016. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
According to reports, one vehicle was driving in front of another vehicle on Toll 49 headed south. It was also at this same another vehicle was driving headed north. Reports indicate that the vehicle behind the vehicle in the south lane tried to pass it and hit the northbound car. After that initial incident, that same vehicle proceeded to crash into another vehicle in the northbound lanes.
Ward and Rankin were injured, but reportedly they were both released. The Rank’s and Harper died as a result of the extreme injuries they sustained in the accident. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to the friends and families of the Rank’s and Harper.
What was the cause of the fatal accident? Was anyone distracted or under the influence? Are there any other factors missing from this report?
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 driving safely is so important.
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 or personal injury lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits.
