Kimberly Rowdon Injured in Car Accident on 25th Street in Temple, TX

Temple, TX — November 6, 2022, 46-year-old passenger Kimberly Rowdon was injured in a single-vehicle crash on 25th Street in Bell County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 8:05 p.m. on South 25th at West Avenue H in Temple. Preliminary investigation suggests Rowdon was riding in an Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser, traveling south on 25th Street, when the driver may have lost control for unconfirmed reasons. The car veered left through the Avenue H intersection and crashed into a light pole on the southeast corner.

Rowdon was seriously injured in the crash; the car's 27-year-old driver was reportedly unhurt.

Investigators alleged the driver may have been under the influence of alcohol and collected blood samples for testing.

No further information is currently available.

To be very clear, I don't know more about this accident than what reports say and I can neither confirm nor deny the idea that alcohol played a role. Investigators seem to think so, and if they're right then there may be more work to do in case a local bar is partly responsible for the damage done, but only clear evidence can really say one way or the other if this truly was a matter of drunk driving.

Until blood test results can confirm or disprove that, I hope authorities investigate other possible explanations as well. A lot of things can send a car off-course like this, so a proper and full investigation will consider road conditions, medical emergencies, vehicle malfunctions, blown tires, and dozens of other potential factors instead of getting tunnel vision about one or two plausible explanations.

As I said, only clear facts can tell the real story about what happened--and until they can, it's best not to jump to conclusions or point fingers. As always, the first thing is to investigate carefully and learn the whole story. I think most would agree the people affected deserve no less.
