A man was killed after a rollover crash on Highway 158 Thursday afternoon.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, around 2:24 p.m., 29-year-old Jeffrey Monroe was driving west on the highway when for unknown reasons his pickup left the roadway before losing control and rolling several times.
Rescue personnel arrived on scene to find Mr. Monroe had been killed on impact. Mr. Monroe was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that nearly three of every four fatal rollovers occur on a rural road with a posted speed limit of 55 mph or higher, and excessive speeding is cited as a contributory factor in about 40 percent of fatal rollovers.
Seeing a copy of the Texas accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Texas Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An Texas accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
