Texas driver dies of injuries from crash on bridge

Any accident on the roads of Texas is dangerous, with the potential for drivers and passengers of the vehicles to suffer injuries. In the worst cases, those injuries may even result in death for one or more individuals. That is what happened in a recent crash in northeast Denton County, Texas.

The accident happened on a recent Wednesday night. According to police, it occurred at around 7:30 p.m. The location was an icy bridge that is a part of U.S. Highway 380 between Paloma Creek and Providence Village. The Little Elm Assistant police chief confirmed that it resulted in U.S. 380's westbound lane being shut down while officers addressed the situation. The Texas Highway Patrol was asked to help block the scene in order to ensure the safety of the ensuing investigation.

Denton County's chief death investigator confirmed that one man in the crash had died. The man, 41, was from Savannah, which is in Denton County. The man's identity was released to the press after his next-of-kin was notified.

The accident involved six cars in the original pileup, with a seventh car colliding into the accident scene some time later. It is believed that the icy conditions contributed directly to the crash, with that area having been described as being very slick.

There may have been additional injuries amongst the drivers and passengers of the other cars involved as well. This case illustrates the importance for all Texas drivers to be very aware of road conditions, particularly during inclement weather. If the roads, are icy, wet or have other problems, accidents can be much more likely. By maintaining a high level of awareness of their surroundings, drivers can maximize safety for themselves and for their passengers.
