Paula Brewer Killed, Shelly Fore Injured in Car Accident on US-175 in Eustace, TX

Eustace, TX — January 19, 2022, 58-year-old Paula Brewer died and 46-year-old Shelly Fore was injured in an auto accident on U.S. Highway 175 in Eustace.

Authorities say the incident happened around 9:15 a.m. on US-175 near Farm to Market Road 316. Preliminary investigation suggests Fore was driving a Chevy Malibu west in the highway's left lane as a Chevy Silverado was eastbound nearby on the other side of the road.

Investigators believe the Malibu left its lane for unknown reasons, then crossed through the center turn lane and entered the eastbound lanes. The Silverado driver tried to steer clear of the Malibu but the vehicles crashed at an offset. After the impact they spun away in opposite directions.

Brewer was ejected from the Malibu during the crash and suffered fatal injuries. Fore and the Silverado driver both reportedly received serious injuries and were transported to an area hospital.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Paula Brewer, Shelly Fore Accident in Eustace

Police seem to lay most of the fault for what happened in Eustace on the crossover driver; they cited distraction and failure to maintain a single lane as key factors in the crash. I have no particular reason to doubt their finds, but at the same time I've long since learned to take preliminary reports with a grain or two of salt. I've lost count of the times when our firm's investigators looked again at a wreck and found crucial details that slipped through the cracks during a "by the numbers" police once-over.

So what if there's more to the story here? Police blamed the car's driver, but did they check into other possibilities as well? Bad road conditions? A sudden medical emergency? Malfunctions or defects in the Malibu sending it off-course and out of control? None of those are as common as driver errors, but they all cause wrecks every day all over the world and they must be accounted for during a thorough investigation. Did police take the time and care to learn the whole story in Eustace?
