Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 20-Aug-2013
A head-on collision left two Austin residents dead when a pickup truck and a Range Rover collided on Hwy 35, late Sunday afternoon, officials reported.
The two casualties of the Refugio County car accident were identified as 14-year-old Samson Stoffregen and 45-year-old Nicole Lowenberg. They were both wearing seatbelts at the time of the wreck but both were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
Police believe the head-on collision occurred when the Dodge Ram pickup veered into the opposite lane of traffic, slamming into the Range Rover. As a result of the impact, the Range Rover spun, crashing into a nearby guard rail. The pickup truck rolled over as a result of the collision.
Both people killed in the accident were occupants in the Range Rover.
Other occupants in the Range Rover included; Nicholas Lowenberg, 14, and Trey Lowneburg, 10. Both were transported to area hospitals for the treatment of injuries they sustained in the crash.

Some head-on collisions can be tied to distracted or drowsy driving. Even taking one’s eyes off the road for mere seconds can have a detrimental affect on the ability of drivers to react adequately to other vehicles, debris and even animals in the roadway.
Even hands free devices can take driver attention away from the road, even though eyes are focused and hands are available to react and steer.
