One Dead, One Injured in Archer County Wreck

Archer County, TX (1/10/2020) – One person is dead and another is injured after a head-on collision occurred Thursday afternoon.

The incident happened around 5:20 p.m. on Highway 16 when two vehicles collided head-first into each other.

Joseph Michael Wood, 42, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Spencer Smith was left injured.

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

According to an NTSB report, head-on collisions account for only 3 percent of accidents on roadways, but they are more likely to result in fatal and serious injuries than any other types of accidents. The severity of these kinds of collisions are why hiring an attorney is essential; lawyers will be able to effectively determine who is at-fault, along with taking lead on all matters regarding insurance claims, demand letters, settlements, and other legalities.

It is important to have an experienced lawyer handling the case who understands wrongful death and the objective term of negligence. If you or a loved one were involved in a car accident, immediately contact a legal expert to help you evaluate your options. Call car accident attorneys Sutliff & Stout at (713) 987-7111 or send us an email to discuss your car accident injury case.
