Margaret Duran, Raymond Ledesma, 2 Injured in Car Accident in Georgetown, TX
Georgetown, TX -- January 28, 2023, Margaret Duran, Raymond Ledesma, and two others were injured after their car hit a disabled vehicle.
According to initial details, the crash happened at around 1:14 a.m. along I-35 in the area of Northwest Boulevard. There had been a previous collision along southbound lanes, authorities said, leaving a vehicle disabled across the inside lane. Some time later, a Kia crashed into the disabled vehicle.
From the Kia, Margaret Duran and another occupant had incapacitating injuries while Raymond Ledesma and a fourth occupant were said to have non-incapacitating injuries. No one else was listed as injured.
There are no more clear details available, and one that comes to mind immediately is visibility. It appears at least some time passed between these two incidents. I can't help wondering if anyone involved in the first incident was able to ensure the crash site was visible or if they even had the means to do so. Driver should generally be able to see and avoid a vehicle with its hazards on, but there isn't much they would be able to do if that vehicle didn't have its lights on or was angled such that the lights couldn't be seen. Was this all just an unfortunate case of "wrong place, wrong time"?
