Tarrant County Car Crash Kills Fort Worth Woman
Posted on Jul 13, 2013
A woman from Forth Worth died in a Tarrant County car crash recently. The accident occurred near Cool, on US Highway 180.
The woman, identified as Jessica Reyes, 38, was driving a grey Saturn SUV, and a white Dodge pickup truck hit her at around 4:30 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of US-180 between the Farm-to-Market Road 113 North and FM 113 South Intersections.
It is unclear as to what exactly caused the wreck, but one witness may have some insight into what happened. Amber Sarver said her 22-year-old daughter was on her way home from work when she saw the accident happen.
"At first she thought the girl in the SUV was trying to back out of a driveway and then, the more she thought about it, she said she thought she was trying to make a U-turn [in the crossover]," Sarver said, speaking of her daughter’s eyewitness account. "She said the impact was so hard that the SUV was literally in the air and flipped more than once. She stopped and other people stopped. She called home and was so upset, my husband went out to calm her down," Sarver added.
It has not been determined if the driver of the pickup truck was injured, but after the impact, it was left in the highway's median with damage to its front. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner Office says that Reyes was pronounced dead at the scene because of the injuries she sustained.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Reyes, and to everyone involved in this car crash.
