Gregg County, TX (8/3/2020) – A man and woman were killed and others were injured after a two-vehicle wreck in Gregg County.
The accident happened Friday night around 7:56 p.m. at the intersection of Texas Street and FM 2275. A Chevrolet pickup truck, driven by a 16-year-old juvenile, was headed west on FM 2275 when it struck a Toyota Camry after the Camry failed to stop at the intersection. The Camry, driven by 35-year-old Adam Benjamin Chadbourne, was hit on its right passenger side.
Chadbourne and his passenger, 35-year-old Sara Elizabeth Chadbourne, were killed at the scene.
Two additional juvenile passengers, a 12-year-old boy and a 1-year-old girl, were taken to a nearby hospital, where they remain in stable condition.
The driver of the pickup and two passengers were treated at a nearby hospital and later released.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
In Texas, the immediate family members of people who were killed are able to seek damages and hold the responsible party accountable by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
Because damages claimed in wrongful death lawsuits are usually significant, insurance companies and lawyers for the at-fault party will do everything they can to avoid being held responsible. For this reason, it’s critical that Chadbourne’s family be represented by their own lawyers who have significant experience handling wrongful death claims.
