Garland Peterson died in a car accident in Lubbock, Texas. Daniel Sandoval died in the accident as well. Ronald Cotton and Fabian Rios were hurt in the collision. The unfortunate incident occurred on July 16, 2016. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
According to reports, two trucks were headed in the same direction on FM 179 when another vehicle tried to pass them. One of the two trucks attempted to turn left and the two trucks crashed with each other. Cotton was injured and his condition is reportedly serious. Rios was injured also and his condition is stable. Peterson and Sandoval died as a result of the extreme injuries they sustained. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to the friends and families of Peterson and Sandoval.
What was the cause of the car 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 and personal injury lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits.
