The expertise of experienced auto accident attorneys would come in handy following the death of a motorist who ran a red light and got hit by another car in Vidor, Texas. The Vidor Police Department recorded the incident on Saturday night, June 20.
As stated in the reports, Vidor police dispatched officers to the scene on reports of a traffic collision that left one person pinned inside his vehicle on Highway 90 and North Dewitt. Responding officers found the victim, Justin Lynn Sturrock, 32, of Beaumont unresponsive, with major injuries when they arrived.
Onsite investigations determined that Sturrock was driving his vehicle southbound on North Dewitt. The motorist reportedly failed to obey a stop sign at the road’s intersection with Highway 90. As a result, he drove directly into the path of another car, traveling west on 90.
The westbound vehicle, which had the right of way at the time, collided with the driver’s side door of Sturrock’s car, causing major damages. The Orange County Justice of Peace Joy Dubose-Simonton pronounced Sturrock deceased at the scene.
The occupant of the second vehicle declined transportation to a hospital for treatment. Their injuries were not life-threatening, the Vidor Police confirmed.
The accident reports failed to ascertain whether the victim was under the influence of drugs or alcohol when the accident happened. The Orange County authorities have ordered an autopsy on the victim. The results are pending.
Auto accident attorneys can help victims of car accidents and their families, in fatal cases, to secure compensation for damages if the liability lies with a third party.
