CLEBURNE, TX — A single-vehicle crash left one man in the hospital in Cleburne, Texas on Saturday, March 22nd, 2014, according to a news report from The Cleburne Times Review.
Police with details of the crash investigation have reason to suspect 29-year-old Joshua Holt was hurt when the Jeep Grand Cherokee he was driving rolled after hitting the curb while driving on West Westhill Drive. The accident happened around 3:30 in the afternoon on Saturday.
Scene of the Accident
Joshua Holt was taken by EMS personnel to a nearby hospital in a helicopter where an update on his condition was not made available by hospital personnel.
The investigation into the crash is currently ongoing by personnel from both local and state agencies.
While we don’t know what caused the accident, but there are a few details in the news report that raise a few questions. First and foremost, what were the conditions at the time of the accident? If the weather or roads were in poor condition, did the driver adjust their speed and following distance to avoid an accident? I have never once seen a vehicle crash or roll that was driving at a speed that was safe and appropriate for conditions. Keep in mind that this accident could have been caused by any number of factors, be it a tire blowout, or another driver swerving, the bottom line is assigning fault based on a news article would be a pretty big assumption.
