One Person Left Dead after Multi-Vehicle Wreck

El Paso, TX (5/12/2020) – A three-vehicle wreck between a motorcycle, a vehicle, and a tractor-trailer left one person dead in El Paso.

Jesus Enrique Herrera, 19, was on his motorcycle traveling westbound on I-10 when he attempted to pass a Chrystler 200 driven by Araceli Duran, 46. He struck the Chrystler’s rear and slid across the interstate after separating from his motorcycle. A tractor-trailor driven by 36-year-old Tahirt Tasfahsayan swerved to avoid Herrera but ultimately struck him.

Herrera suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital, where he later died.

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

Texas Is an At-Fault State

In Texas, drivers involved in car accidents always include someone who is at-fault, meaning that there is an individual who caused the accident to occur. In the case above, the motorcyclist rear-ended a vehicle, resulting in a three-vehicle wreck. Because of this, the insurance company in contact with the motorcyclist could face claims of wrongful death and personal injury. However, insurance companies are only looking out for their best interests.

The best way to make sure you are treated fairly after your car accident is to hire a lawyer who knows the law and who is willing to fight to make sure that you are treated fairly.  An attorney can deal with insurance adjusters for you, negotiate settlements, and represent your best interests if a lawsuit is needed. If you or a loved one were involved in a car accident, immediately contact a legal expert to help you evaluate your options.
