Micah Camron Neal Killed, 3 Injured in Fort Worth, TX Single-Vehicle Accident
Fort Worth, TX -- November 30, 2019, Micah Camron Neal sustained fatal injuries after an accident where his vehicle crashed off the side of the highway.
Investigators said that the crash happened at around 1:00 a.m. near the East Loop 820 and US 287 interchange.
According to police, 19-year-old Micah Camron Neal was driving a vehicle along the southbound lanes of the highway. For reasons unclear, his vehicle traveled off the side of the road where it crashed at an overpass.
As a result of the crash, Neal succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene. Three people in the car went to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
At this time, the exact cause of the crash remains under investigation. Additional details are unavailable.
Something that always concerns me with a crash like this is whether or not police are giving it the attention it deserves. When a teenager crashes their car, sometimes the police report doesn't say anything more than the basic facts. They'll say the victim lost control of their car and crashed. But that's obvious. The question is why did they crash? If police just assume the driver screwed up, then important details might slip through the cracks. Especially considering this young man lost his life, that's not good enough. The family deserves to know they're getting the full story. Like many other similar wrecks, getting those answers may require more thorough, independent investigations.
