Driver Critically Injured in Single-Vehicle Crash on Franklin Ave in Waco, TX

Waco, TX — September 3, 2022, a 37-year-old woman was seriously injured in a single-vehicle accident on Franklin Avenue in Waco.

Authorities say the incident happened around 2:10 a.m. on Franklin Ave near South 28th Street. Preliminary investigation suggests the victim was driving a Buick LeSabre east on the road when she lost control for unknown reasons. The car ran off the road and hit several metal bollard posts, then crashed into a concrete pole. It spun away from that impact and came to rest in a parking lot nearby.

The driver suffered serious critical injuries in the wreck and was taken to an area hospital.

Commentary on Waco Car Accident on Franklin Avenue

Investigators seem to think two key factors in this accident were the vehicle's speeding and the possibility that the driver had consumed alcohol. Before anyone accepts those as gospel truth and blames the victim for her injuries, though, it's important to remember that preliminary reports are mostly just officers' best guesses about what happened based on what they found at the scene. Moreover, sometimes having reached a conclusion they move on without questioning if there's more to the story.

I've been contacted many times by people hurt in these wrecks who told me police reports didn't tell the whole truth of what happened--or in the worst cases, they were just completely wrong. Obviously an "official" record of what occurred that doesn't even have the facts straight can be problematic for victims and families in search of answers or help. That's why in cases of confusion or doubt I often recommend that independent experts step in and take another look. Many times their assessment lines up with what police said, but in plenty of others experienced professionals with the right tools and training have located vital evidence that slipped through the cracks in a "by the numbers" police effort. Will someone confirm how things happened here--and if someone should be held responsible, will they find the proof needed to do so?
