Archer County, TX (4/29/2021) – A single-vehicle wreck left one dead and another injured Thursday morning.
The accident happened on Highway 79 around 5:30 a.m. when a Ford pickup truck hydroplaned, causing the pickup to side skid across the roadway and enter a low-lying barrow ditch and rollover. The vehicle came to rest on its roof in the water-filled ditch.
Driver Xavier Phoenix Ventura, 19, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The passenger of the vehicle, Tristan James Arvanis, was transported to United Regional with serious injuries. Their current condition is unknown at this time.
The report said roads were wet due to rain, and neither the driver nor the passenger of the vehicle were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the wreck.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
Car Accident Lawyers
Car accidents happen on highways, freeways, and county roads every day, whether it be due to road conditions, traffic, construction, weather conditions, or even debris. In the case above, wet roads caused a pickup truck to hydroplane. Hydroplaning occurs when the combination of a slippery road, speeding, and tire pressure causes a driver to lose control.
Car accidents caused by hydroplaning are the reason many people suffer injuries, even accidents that cause people to be hospitalized in the intensive care unit at the hospital, or killed.
