A major crash in Van Alstyne has left multiple people injured and at least one person trapped in a vehicle. Grayson County Scanner reported the crash happened November 7, 2022 at approximately 2:14 p.m and stated that Tom Bean Fire, Whitewright EMS, and Whitewright Fire all responded. KXII reported that State Troopers said a truck driven by 44-year-old Corey Crawford was traveling westbound on FM 121 when a pickup truck driven by 27-year-old Cody Parks heading eastbound crossed the centerline and struck the truck driven by Crawford. Six people were injured and transported to the hospital, one by air ambulance. We don’t have complete information about injuries, but we know at this time that Crawford and his passengers Amanda Crawford and an unidentified 16-year-old were transported to Texoma Medical Center. Parks was flown to Medical City Plano. His passengers, an unidentified 8-year-old and 1-year-old, were transported to Medical City McKinney. Troopers said this is an ongoing investigation.
Fortunately, multiple agencies were called to respond to this accident and it seems the injured people received relatively quick medical treatment. Regarding the facts, the interviews of witnesses and photos of the scene, measurements are all important to determine which vehicle crossed the centerline. When possible witnesses are also the injured victims, there can be a delay in obtaining these statements – however, they are very important. Regardless of preliminary reports of fault, further interviews of the occupants and any third party witnesses can determine who is responsible for this wreck. There could also be issues of multiple claimants all trying to recover from one insurance policy so investigation of secondary and supplemental policies must be done. The process can be complicated and the assistance of a lawyer experienced in this type of incident can greatly help your case.
