A wrong-way auto accident seriously injured two men in Garland, Texas. The accident happened on Saturday evening when an unidentified male was operating a BMW and traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of 635. The BMW collided head-on with a Toyota SUV and the impact caused the Toyota to overturn. Emergency crews had to extricate both male drivers from their vehicles and they were transported by ambulances to the hospital in serious condition. Authorities closed the 635 for several hours while they reconstructed the accident and the investigating is ongoing.
The majority of the thousands of auto accidents that occur each year share a common component in that they are caused by a form of negligence. Dangerous roadways, mechanical defects, design flaws, and reckless driving are the most common causes of car accidents where a negligent party is responsible. Individuals that are involved in car accidents may sustain physical injuries, property damages, and mental anguish. Fortunately, victims of auto accidents may be entitled to compensation for their damages if another party is liable for the crash. The party responsible could be the driver of the vehicle, the automaker, engineers of the roadways, or other parties.
