The accident happened on FM 417, west of FM 2694. At around 8:15 a.m., a BMW was traveling west at unsafe speeds when it crossed over the eastbound lane and drove off the road. It then struck a tree. First responders used emergency extrication tools to free the two occupants from the car.

The driver was identified as 19-year-old Jonathon Gomez. He was taken to Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital for treatment. 

A passenger was also taken to the hospital for treatment. He was identified as 16-year-old Adrian Aparicio.

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 the John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center, one out of every five car crashes is a single-vehicle crash. Single-car accidents can be a frustrating, and in some cases, scary situation depending on the occurrence.

Single-vehicle collisions can occur for a variety of reasons. If you were recently involved in a single-vehicle accident, negligence may have played a role. If you are unsure of how to recover compensation for your crash, turn to our trusted car accident lawyers in Houston for help.
