Victoria, TX (10/14/2020) – A car crash in Victoria County left one person dead Wednesday morning.
The accident happened on Business 59 when 28-year-old Bryan Tamayo was driving with passenger Jose Garza. The two then crashed into a van coming from the opposite direction. The van hit the guard rail, flipped over, and fell onto the road beneath.
The driver of the van, 36-year-old Dominique Joiner, was killed at the scene.
Tamayo and Garza were not injured.
Tamayo was later arrested and charged with Intoxication Manslaughter. He now resides at the Victoria County Jail.
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, also identified as wrong-way 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 oncoming collisions, much like the case above, is why hiring an attorney is essential; lawyers will be able to effectively determine who is at-fault, along with taking the lead on all matters regarding insurance claims, demand letters, settlements, and other legalities. Call car accident lawyers Sutliff & Stout so you can be fairly represented for your car accident case.
