Head-On Crash Left Three Dead in Tarkington

Tarkington, TX (9/27/2020) – Three people were killed in a head-on crash that occurred Sunday night.

The accident happened on State Highway 105 near FM 2518. A black Chevrolet pickup was attempting to pass an 18-wheeler when it collided with another black Chevrolet pickup coming from the opposite direction. 

Three people were killed as a result of the wreck. The driver of the first black Chevrolet was identified as 33-year-old Francisco Rivera-Rosas. The driver of the pickup that was hit was identified as 56-year-old Timothy Gannon. A passenger in Rivera-Rosas’ vehicle was also killed and he was identified as Juan Salgado. 

Another passenger in Rivera-Rosas’ vehicle, 43-year-old Juan Salgado-Alvarez,  was seriously injured.

Gannon’s wife, 57-year-old Kimberly Gannon, also suffered serious injuries.

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

Because two victims were killed in a fatal car accident, the surviving families of those that were killed may have rights to file wrongful death claims against Rivera-Rosas and his insurance company. In Texas, a wrongful death claim allows victims to recover many different types of damages, including the death of their deceased family member’s income and financial support, the loss of the deceased family member’s companionship, the loss of an expected inheritance, and mental anguish and suffering.
