Robert Howard Brock, a 35-year-old man from Marshall, died after a single-vehicle crash that happened on Blocker Road, just outside of Marshall, Texas. According to accident reports, the collision occurred on late Monday night, May 25.
Reports from the Texas Department of Public Safety state that officers responded to distress calls about the crash around 11 p.m. and rushed to the scene. There, they found the victim whose vehicle, a 2018 Jeep struck a tree.
From preliminary investigations carried out, the officers discovered that Brock was driving northbound on Blocker road at the time of the crash. He was traveling at an unsafe speed and soon lost control of his vehicle. He soon left the roadway, going across a creek, and finally slammed into a tree.
Judge John Oswalt pronounced Brock dead at the crash scene, after which his body was taken to Meadowbrook Memorial Home. There are still ongoing investigations into the crash.
Driving at high speeds, asides being against the law, is also dangerous to both a driver of a vehicle and other motorists. When motorists go at excessive speeds, they run the risk of causing collisions that could end up being fatal.
A driver that drives at unsafe speed could end up going off the road and crashing into harmful objects. Such a driver may also crash his or her vehicle into the cars of other road users. This could lead to death, life-threatening injuries, and traffic jams.
Accident reports reveal that speeding is a major cause of road collisions in the state of Texas, and hence authorities always caution drivers from doing such.
