Waco, TX (4/21/2020) – A woman was killed and another woman was injured after they crashed into a tree outside of Waco.
A Dodge Ram was headed eastbound on FM 185 around 8:45 p.m. when it left the road and struck a tree.
The front-seat passenger, 64-year-old Mary Harcrow, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver was taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center in Waco with non-life-threatening injuries.
The cause of the crash is still unknown. Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
Pending the result of the investigation, it will be revealed what exactly was the cause of the accident. Because the driver was driving at the time of the wreck, there could be a possibility that he remains at-fault for the accident. If that is the case, then the surviving family of Mary Harcrow may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim against the driver’s insurance.
