Nacogdoches, TX (11/22/2020) – A two-vehicle wreck in Sabine County left one woman dead Sunday evening.
The accident occurred on State Highway 87 around 5:30 p.m. A Toyota SUV headed north crossed over into the southbound lane for unknown reasons and struck a Ford SUV head-on.
The driver of the Toyota, 63-year-old Cindy Perkins, was killed at the scene.
The driver of the Ford, 53-year-old Catherine McGue, was taken to Sabine County Hospital for treatment.
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 an NTSB report, head-on collisions, also identified as wrong-way collisions, account for only 3 percent of accidents on roadways, but they are more likely to result in fatal and serious injuries than any other types of accidents. The severity of oncoming collisions, much like the case above, is why hiring an attorney is essential; lawyers will be able to effectively determine who is at-fault, along with taking the lead on all matters regarding insurance claims, demand letters, settlements, and other legalities. Call car accident lawyers Sutliff & Stout so you can be fairly represented for your car accident case.
