Donna Lynn Alexander Killed, 2 Injured in Car Accident in Early, TX
Early, TX -- January 22, 2023, Donna Lynn Alexander succumbed to injuries sustained in a car accident that took place earlier in the month.
Recent details given by local media outlet Fox West Texas say the crash happened the evening of January 12. It appears that four vehicles crashed along the 900 block of Early Boulevard at around 5:45 p.m. Three people were transported from the scene following the crash. It appears one of them was Donna Lynn Alexander. She reportedly succumbed to her injuries on January 22. The conditions of others involved in the crash is not clear at this time. No further information about the crash can be confirmed.
One can only wonder why there wasn't more attention on this crash prior to someone losing their life. Even if she had survived, this seems like it was a very serious crash. To be clear, I'm not trying to pry into something that the public doesn't ultimately have a right to know. But my concern is a lack of information in the news about a serious crash can be a sign that investigators themselves aren't really sure what happened.
Whether it's a lack of time, personnel, proper equipment, training, or simply the sheer chaos of a serious crash scene, details can slip through the cracks. One of the reasons why lawyers and authorities alike often consult independent accident reconstructionists is precisely to catch the information that a standard police investigation is likely to overlook. It's not clear whether or not those efforts were made here or even if they'll ultimately be necessary. But I have no doubt there's a family out there that deserves to know they're getting the whole story, and I can only hope they find the answers they're getting right now to be satisfactory.
