Fatal Car Accidents in Texas

Odessa, TX – Man Loses Life in Crash on FM 866 near RM 2020Every year, auto accidents in the state of Texas take the lives of more than 4000 people.

  • Motorists who are impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Motorists who turn at intersections without looking
  • Motorists who failed to yield the right of way to others
  • Motorists who are traveling above the posted speed limits
