Marissa Newton Killed in Beeville, TX, Single-Vehicle Accident

Beeville, TX -- January 22, 2017, Marissa Newton was killed following an accident where the vehicle in which she was riding crashed off of FM 888.

Investigating officials from the Texas Department of Public Safety say the accident happened around 3:00 p.m. just south of town.

15-year-old Newton was a rear-seat passenger in a vehicle that was traveling down FM 888. For reasons that have yet to be determined, the vehicle in which she was riding somehow lost control. This caused the car to veer off the roadway where it crashed through a fence before striking a group of trees.

Due to the severity of the rash, Newton suffered fatal injuries. EMS pronounced her deceased at the scene. The driver and another passenger both sustained non-life-threatening injuries for which they were taken to a nearby hospital.

Authorities have yet to indicate what factors may have led to the crash. Their investigations are ongoing.

Map of the Area


When it comes to passengers being injured or killed in an accident, I find that not everyone is aware of exactly what they and their families' options are. When it comes to liability for an accident, the rights of passengers may be a bit more simple than one would think. In basic terms, unless the victim somehow directly contributed to the accident, they most likely have a claim against someone.

As with all accidents, this crash needs to be looked at very closely in order to determine what caused the crash. Only once all of the facts have been uncovered can steps forward be taken by those affected.
