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

According to the Killeen Daily News, one man was killed and two others were injured in a two-car accident allegedly caused by a wrong way driver.

Local news and the Killeen Police Department report that the head-on accident took place just after midnight on South Fort Hood Street when one driver proceeded down the wrong side of the street, striking an oncoming car. The 36-year-old driver of the wrong way vehicle was airlifted to Scott & White Hospital in Temple but was pronounced dead a few hours later. The driver’s passenger, a 24-year-old man, suffered only minor injuries in the crash and has been treated and released from Metroplex Hospital. The driver of the car with the right of way, a 26-year-old man, remains in serious condition.

It is unclear what caused the driver to go the wrong way down the street, though alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. The accident is under investigation.

Many Texans do not realize how common – or how dangerous – wrong way highway driving is. Some of the common causes of wrong way driving are alcohol, drugs, elderly drivers, and poor road design.

If you have been injured in a Texas car accident that involved a wrong way driver, you should speak with a Dallas auto wreck lawyer as soon as possible. The Rasansky Law Firm offers injury victims a free, private meeting to discuss their case and get the answers they need.
