The Bexar County Examiner’s Office has identified the man who died in a two-vehicle collision in West Bear County, Texas. In updated reports of the car accident released on Friday, June 26th, the ME revealed the victim’s name as Jeremiah Penland, 31.
The preliminary investigation disclosed that Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies found the victim dead inside his Honda Civic around 6 a.m. on Wednesday, June 24th. The car was along Loop 1604 near Pue Road north of Macdona.
The vehicle was heading south on the highway when a northbound truck suddenly veered into its lane and collided with it head-on. The impact caused the second vehicle to roll over, and Penland’s Honda went off the road. The man died at the scene from fatal wounds and medics transported the driver of the pickup to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
The BCSO is investigating to discover what caused the truck to veer off the road, and they have not brought any charges yet. There is no additional information.
Several factors that are human-made or external cause motor vehicle crashes. While negligence is one of the primary reasons cars crash, sometimes, events that a motorist can’t control results in collisions. Some of them include animal sightings, adverse weather conditions like rain, snow, or fog, manufacturer’s defects, or underlying medical conditions.
Drivers can mitigate the above factors by practicing safe road behaviors and obeying traffic rules and regulations. Additionally, pay attention to the roadway, and seek alternative means of transportation if feeling impaired in any way.
