Jose Buenrostro Resendiz Injured in Car Accident in Little Elm, TX

Little Elm, TX -- June 7, 2022, Jose Buenrostro Resendiz was injured due to an accident where two vehicles collided on the highway.

Authorities reported that the crash took place at around 10:15 p.m. along Eldorado Parkway/FM 720 at Oak Grove Parkway.

In reports, officials said that 30-year-old Jose Buenrostro Resendiz (also identified in sources as "Jose Fernando Recendez") was in a Ford Expedition traveling eastbound on Eldorado. While attempting to turn left onto Oak Grove, an oncoming Ford F-250 crashed into Resendiz's vehicle.

Resendiz had incapacitating injuries due to the crash, reports said. No other injuries were reported. The cause of the crash remains unclear, though authorities said they're looking into the possibility the pickup driver had been drinking. Additional details are unavailable.

Commentary on Jose Buenrostro Resendiz Car Accident in Little Elm

A crash like this can be rather complex depending on what the evidence ultimately reveals. There is some consideration that the victim didn't have the right-of-way here, but there is also the possibility the other driver was drunk. Hypothetically, let's say both of those turn out to be true. What does that mean? Would the drunk driver automatically be at fault because drunk driving is so dangerous? Or does right-of-way trump everything else? Texas law is a bit more nuanced than that.

Ultimately, things come down to whose actions were more likely than not the cause of the injuries. A potential jury would be tasked to determine if a sober driver would have reasonably been able to avoid the crash. If so, then they could say that alcohol was the proximate cause of the crash. Not only could that lead to consequences for the drunk driver involved, it could even involve a local establishment if they illegally over-served that driver and are liable under dram shop law. However, if evidence shows that even a sober driver would have hit the other vehicle, then it's likely a potential jury would say the failure to yield was the proximate cause.

Like I said, there's no way to say based on these reports who or what ultimately caused this crash. It's simply important folks understand why this isn't the sort of crash that can be taken lightly. Getting to the bottom of things and getting people the help they need will no doubt require further attention from more experienced professionals.
