UPDATE (January 5, 2023): Tarrant County officials released details identifying the victim as 59-year-old Martin Rodriguez. There is currently no further information regarding the crash.

Fort Worth, TX -- December 26, 2022, at least one person was killed due to a car accident which happened on I-35W near Garden Acres Drive.

Available information says that the incident happened at around 5:30 a.m. along northbound lanes of the interstate at Garden Acres Drive. The cause of the crash and the facts surrounding it are unclear. All that was said was that a pickup was involved, and one person died. While news sources say a man was taken from the scene to a hospital, they did not confirm if he was the one killed due to the crash.

So what does this lack of information mean? Well, it could simply mean police are being tight-lipped until they know more. What concerns me, though, is this is also a possible sign that authorities aren't really giving the crash the attention it deserves. Time and time again, folks come to me for help precisely because they waited on the authorities only to end up more or less empty handed.

That's one of the reasons I frequently use this blog to discuss aspects of accident investigation and Texas law that folks will rarely hear about from the authorities. A crash can be as simple as texting and driving or as complex as an unforeseeable mechanical defect. Without knowing what possible steps there are following such events, how are victims and families going to move forward?
