New Summerfield, TX (7/15/2021) – A person was killed and two others were injured in a two-vehicle wreck Thursday afternoon.

One Man Dead, One Other Injured after Fatal Head-on Collision

The accident happened around 4:50 p.m. on State Highway 110. An Impala headed north lost control after passing another vehicle, causing the vehicle to run off the road and overcorrect into the southbound lane. It then struck a Toyota Highlander.

The driver of the Impala, 62-year-old Tonya Tindall, was killed at the scene.

The driver of the Toyota, 25-year-old Joshua Meelkop, and passenger Amanda Meelkop, 39, were taken to the hospital in critical condition. 

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

Head-On Collision Lawyers

Car accidents are extremely serious incidents that can cause a lot of damage and long-term suffering. On the busy highways in and around Texas, there are numerous hazards that can cause severe and even fatal accidents. Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous types of car accidents.

More often than not, losing control while driving leads to wrong-way collisions, which then can lead to untimely deaths. Because a car is heading at you in the opposite direction at dangerous speeds, the consequences are deadly. According to the FHWA, in the United States, WWD crashes result in 300 to 400 people killed each year on average, representing approximately 1 percent of the total number of traffic related fatalities that occur annually.
