Luther Pierce Jr. Injured in Car Accident in Fort Worth, TX
Fort Worth, TX -- June 21, 2022, Luther Pierce Jr. was injured due to an accident where two vehicles crashed off an intersection.
Public information was given by authorities whose investigations say the crash happened off the corner of Berry Street and Donalee Street at around 8:13 p.m.
Investigators said that 48-year-old Luther Pierce Jr. was in a Nissan Sentra traveling along Donalee. While crossing onto Berry, a westbound Mazda crashed into Pierce's vehicle, sending both off-road.
Pierce's injuries were described as incapacitating while the other driver's condition wasn't clear. Certain details given suggest that Pierce told officers that westbound traffic looked clear when he started to turn. Authorities also said that the Mazda failed to control its speed. I certainly don't have any reason to doubt that, and it raises some serious questions about what made the victim think the coast was clear.
Was the Mazda driving at excessive speeds? Were its headlights off? Is there something wrong with visibility at this particular intersection? Were there other unusual reasons that westbound vehicle wasn't clearly seen? If nothing else, answering these questions could go a long way toward ensuring this situation reaches a satisfactory conclusion for those involved.
