Calvin Kuykendall Killed in 2-Vehicle Crash

A 69-year-old resident of Telferner died this week after his car and a truck collided at the corner of Farm-to-Market Road 1686 and U.S. 59. He is Calvin Kuykendall. In cases like these, the victim’s relatives often seek advice from a car accident lawyer.

Spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Ruben San Miguel shared preliminary details of the fatal crash.

He said Kuykendall was driving a 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer when he was struck by 58-year-old Tammie Hermans who was heading north in a 2012 Chevrolet Colorado.

Hermans, of Ganado, hit the driver’s side door, San Miguel said.

DPS responded to the crash at 5:08 p.m. and Kuykendall was declared dead at the scene.

Hermans was taken to Citizens Medical Center and San Miguel said her injuries were not life-threatening.

No further details were immediately available.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, vehicular accidents caused 3,642 deaths in Texas in 2018. On average, ten people died every day on the state’s roads.

California was the only state with more fatalities. Most of the incidents occurred in urban streets and highways.

The number of traffic fatalities in Texas continues to be of concern. The capital of Austin recorded a spike in road deaths in 2019 following three straight years of decline.  There were 88 deaths in 2019 compared to 74 in the previous year.

Meanwhile, in the first month of 2020, there were 11 traffic fatalities compared to an average of four between 2007 and 2015.

Survivors can often receive damages when they lose loved ones in fatal crashes. However, they often need help from a car accident lawyer.
