Jorge Perez-Brana Killed in Cooke County, TX Car Accident on FM 922

Cooke County, TX — May 29, 2022, 25-year-old Jorge Perez-Brana died in a car accident on Farm to Market Road 922 in Cooke County.

According to reports the incident happened around 8:00 p.m. on FM 922 near County Road 235. Preliminary investigation suggests a RAM 1500 pickup was traveling east on the roadway when the driver allegedly failed to notice another vehicle ahead had slowed to make a turn. He saw the other car when the Ram came close to it, then took faulty evasive action by steering into the oncoming lane. The pickup then crashed head-on with a Ford Mustang driven by Perez-Brana.

Perez-Brana suffered fatal injuries in the collision. The Ram's two occupants received minor injuries.

No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Jorge Perez-Brana Accident in Cooke County

Police noted in their report that the victim of this accident had a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of .158, almost twice the legal limit, at the time of the crash. However, that seems to be more or less a coincidence since the wreck's main cause was the other driver swerving left of center.

Alcohol might still have some relevance if the victim's level of impairment meant he couldn't react properly to the pickup ahead. If it played a significant part in making him unable to avoid the truck, then it would be important to find out where he drank it. Why? Because Texas dram shop law says an alcohol vendor that over-serves its customers may be liable for damage they cause or suffer while under the influence.

Again, it seems like the crash's main cause was the other driver's bad evasive maneuver. I'm not pointing fingers at any local bars, just saying that it's a possible factor that shouldn't be overlooked. Will police be thorough and consider all the possibilities, or would an independent investigation stand a better chance of finding more answers?
