Posted By Stephen Stewart || 3-Dec-2014

Three individuals lost their lives on the roads of Texas after a head-on automobile collision near Lamesa. The accident occurred on Nov. 24 on State Highway 349 in Dawson County around 10 miles southwest of the city.

The car accident happened at approximately 6:45 a.m. when a northbound 2014 Chevrolet Cruze LT crossed into the southbound lanes of S. H. 349 and into the path of a 2003 Toyota Avalon. The two cars struck each other head-on, causing injuries to the drivers of both vehicles and a passenger in the Avalon. Although both drivers had been wearing their seat belts at the time of impact, neither survived the accident. They were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, along with a 36-year-old Midland resident who had been riding as a passenger.

A 51-year old man from Irving who had also been a passenger in the Avalon survived with serious injuries. He was transported to the University Medical Center of Lubbock for treatment. There were no reports as to whether or not he had been wearing a seat belt at the time of the wreck.

The unexpected death of a person can be a severe hardship to the family that they leave behind. The loss of their loved one can cause serious damage to their emotional and economic lives. For example, if a family had depended upon the decedent for financial support, the monetary loss could be substantial. An Austin wrongful death lawyer might be able to assist a family in such a situation seek compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.
