Alcohol and Speed May Have Caused Pileup That Killed Canyon Man
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 20-Jan-2012
A four-vehicle pileup on I-40 near US 287 that claimed the life of a 21-year-old Canyon man may have been related to factors of speed and alcohol, Texas Department of Public Safety officials said.
Police identified the young man as Kendrick Ray Powell, a resident of Canyon, Texas. Powell was pronounced dead at the scene of the multiple-vehicle accident near Amarillo.
According to witnesses and authorities, a Ford Mustang crossed from the eastbound lanes of traffic into the westbound lanes, causing the Mustang to smash into Powell’s Nissan Frontier.
After crashing into the Nissan, the Mustang went on to hit a Ford Ranger, driven by Canyon resident, 48-year-old Gustavo Ohara. The impact of the accidents caused the driver of a Chevy Cobalt, driven by William Dillehay, to collide with the Ford Ranger.
The driver of the Mustang, Easterday, endured life-threatening injuries as a result of the multi-car collision. He was transported to the hospital.
Dillehay and Ohara were not injured in the auto accident.
