A Single Vehicle Early Morning Crash in Bell County Claims the Life of Martin Armando Landin Ariza scaled

At approximately 2:20 a.m., authorities responded to an early morning crash on IH-14 and SH 121 in Bell County. KXAN reports that it happened when a Chevrolet Suburban driven by Martin Armando Landin-Ariza failed to drive in a single lane and ran off the northside of the roadway. The vehicle drove onto the grass and rolled multiple times before igniting and burning. The driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. Justice of the Peace Keith Reed pronouned him dead at the scene.



Frequently, a single vehicle, early crash can be caused by driver fatigue. Officers performing an investigation have to consider all the possible causes including potentially alcohol. While it is true that not every driver involved in a crash just after 2 a.m. has been out drinking, authorities need to rule it out along with distraction, mechanical failure, and a host of other causes. I am not saying that this driver was out drinking. At this point, we don’t know what he was doing prior to the accident. But if it turns out that he was, this information is important for the family from a claims perspective. Most people don’t realize they may be able to file a lawsuit against a bar, restaurant, or other establishment if they overserved a person prior to them injuring or killing themself or someone else. If an investigation determines an establishment was involved in overserving a person, loved ones should reach out to an attorney for a free evaluation of their case. They can assist by preserving evidence and determine how best to move forward.
