Jeff Rasansky, managing partner of Rasansky Law Firm, is an aggressive Dallas personal injury lawyer with 25 years of legal experience.

Two people are dead, two injured children are orphaned, and one person faces a decade of probation following a head-on, wrong-way car accident in Midland. The crash, which involved an intoxicated driver heading west in the eastbound lanes of a highway, has affected countless lives and robbed two little girls of their parents.

How can we help prevent wrong-way accidents in Texas?

  • Call 911 if you see a wrong-way driver. A wrong-way driver is absolutely an emergency and should be reported to police as quickly as possible. Just be sure to have a passenger in the car call, pull over somewhere safe, or dial and use your cell phone with care while driving.
  • Never, ever drink and drive. This is common sense – and it’s an idea that is often beaten over drivers’ heads. But a significant number of fatal car accidents involved alcohol, and more wrong-way driving accidents are caused by alcohol and drugs than any other factor. Remember: drinking and driving doesn’t just hurt you, it can kill others.
  • Report dangerous or confusing on-ramps and intersections. If there is a lack of signage or a poor road design near your home, report it to the Department of Transportation or your local government. If you are confused by a roadway, chances are that others are as well, especially those who don’t live in the area.

Because wrong-way accidents are usually head-on accidents, the collisions often result in fatalities and serious injuries. If you have been involved in a Texas wrong-way car crash, it is important to speak with an accident attorney about your case.
