Hailey Madison Newby Injured in Van Accident in Wilson County, TX

Wilson County, TX -- August 1, 2022, Hailey Madison Newby was injured following an accident where her vehicle and a transit van crashed.

Authorities released information which says that the crash happened at around 7:00 p.m. at the intersection of FM 775 and County Road 344.

18-year-old Hailey Madison Newby was said to be the driver of a Chevy Suburban which was traveling southwest along FM 775. At CR 344, it appears that a Ford Transit van going northwest failed to regard a stop sign, crashing into Newby's vehicle.

Newby had incapacitating injuries, reports say. The van drivers injuries were non-incapacitating. Additional details about what caused the crash are unavailable at this time.

Frankly, I don't understand why this crash didn't get more attention from the public. An 18-year-old girl was nearly killed because someone in a large van couldn't do just about the most basic thing any driver is expected to do: stop at a stop sign. Why is that? Is it just because it's not a big, flashy 18-wheeler? Does someone have to die before news outlets give a serious crash more attention?

What really gets under my skin is that the type of van involved in this crash is often used for work. Was this just an individual owner, or does this belong to a company which would continue putting the community at risk if they didn't face appropriate consequences that got them to clean up their act? Am I the only one who cares that kid almost died in a completely avoidable crash—the only one who wants to be sure others aren't still at risk?
