Fatal East Arlington Car Accident
The Texas Law Dog
On the morning of August 20th, a Dallas woman was struck and killed in a motor vehicle accident. Although many details about the collision are still unclear, initial reports indicate that the 27-year-old woman’s vehicle was struck by a box truck while leaving a business parking lot.
The accident occurred in the 1900 block of East Division Street south of Global Life Park in East Arlington. The driver attempted to turn east onto Division Street, and her vehicle was hit by the truck heading westbound in the opposite direction.
Arlington Fire/Emergency Medical Services and police were dispatched shortly after. Arlington police pronounced the woman dead at the scene. The occupants of the truck were unharmed and are cooperating with law enforcement.
Parking lot accidents occur frequently and can cause significant damage. Even at low speeds, severe car accidents could still occur. A duty of care is owed to all motorists on the road. This means that all drivers are required to operate their vehicles safely and abide by the rules of the road. Drivers must pay extra attention to changing traffic signs, the right of way, pedestrians, and everyone else on the road. It is especially important to pay attention when merging onto a busy street. Motor vehicle drivers must also exercise extreme caution when merging onto busy streets.
