Jolene Robinson Killed, Adron Thomas Hurt in Smith Co., TX, Accident

Smith County, TX -- February 24, 2017, Jolene Ellis Robinson was killed and Adron Thomas was injured following a single-vehicle accident.

Officials from the Smith County Sheriff's Department released details surrounding the crash. They say it happened at approximately 5:00 a.m. along Farm-to-Market Road 16 outside of Lindale.

Their preliminary investigations indicate that 42=year-old Robinson was driving westbound along FM 16 in a Nissan Murano. 42-year-old Thomas was riding as a passenger. For reasons that haven't been made clear, the vehicle lost control and veered off the side of the highway. Afterward, it crashed head-on into a group of trees and caught fire.

Thomas was able to escape the accident with unspecified injuries and was taken to a hospital in Tyler. Robinson was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities say the cause of the accident is still under investigation. No additional details are available.

Map of the Area


These early morning, single-vehicle accidents tend to have very few details surrounding them in early reports. A lack of witnesses and evidence that isn't immediately apparent tends to lead to incomplete stories, and this often results in people speculating on what happened. The typical assumptions for an accident like this is that the driver was speeding or they fell asleep at the wheel. While these are pretty common causes of single-vehicle accidents, things aren't always so simple. Until all of the facts come to light, we can't just sit around throwing out baseless claims. There is a particular method for approaching a single-vehicle crash, and it's something I've discussed at length in the article below.
