Two people were injured when one vehicle rear-ended another near Curtis on Wednesday evening, February 2, 2022.
According to Sergeant Shana Clark of the Texas Department of Public Safety, the two-vehicle crash occurred shortly before 8:00 p.m. on Highway 63.
A 2006 Dodge SUV traveling west on Highway 63 slowed to make a turn onto County Road 114 and was rear-ended by a 2006 Kia sedan.
According to Clark, Emma C., 63, the SUV’s driver, and Betty S., 74, a passenger, both of Jasper, were taken to Jasper Memorial Hospital for treatment.
The severity of their injuries has yet to be determined.
The Kia’s driver, Addison C., 20, of Newton, was not hurt in the crash but was cited by troopers for changing lanes in an unsafe manner, according to Clark.
Two-Vehicle Crash Statistics
In the United States, there are far more car accidents than you might expect. Every 60 seconds, a car accident occurs, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In the United States, approximately 5.25 million people are injured or killed in car accidents each year.
That Texas is the country’s most populous state is due in large part to the fact that it has the highest percentage of legally licensed drivers and public roads. Although the country’s busiest highway system is located here, it doesn’t really matter. As a result, every year, a large number of car accidents occur in Texas.
The Texas Department of Transportation estimates that 3,500 Texans die, and 246,000 are injured each year in car accidents in the state.
Following a car accident, soft tissue injuries, lacerations, fractures, headaches, and migraines are common.
