Jessica Maria Lazo Killed in Car Accident in Garland, TX
Garland, TX — October 17, 2023, Jessica Maria Lazo was killed due to a single-vehicle car accident at around 1:22 a.m. along Highway 66.
Preliminary information released by authorities says that the crash took place in the area of the Highway 66 and Hebron Drive intersection.
According to officials, 37-year-old Jessica Lazo was in a Mercedes-Benz traveling westbound on the highway. At a curve in the road, the vehicle went off the right side of the roadway, then careened into a tree.
Due to the collision, Lazo sustained fatal injuries. There did not appear to be anyone else involved in the crash. Authorities only mentioned distraction and failure to control speed as contributing factors. But how much of that is based on evidence, and how much is based on gut instinct?
I know better than most that single-vehicle wrecks are often the result of driver error. I've had to inform many families as much after they came to me for a second opinion on their loved one's accident. But I've also seen many situations where authorities ignore things like faulty tires, road defects, seatbelt failures, medical emergencies, and even hit-and-runs. Did they look into that stuff here, or is the victim's family getting as few details as the public seems to be?
