One Dead in Hwy 302 Rollover Car Accident Near Kermit, Texas

A rollover car accident near Kermit, Texas left one person dead and injured four others when a Chevrolet SUV overturned on Hwy 302, officials revealed on Sunday.

The driver of the SUV was identified as a fifteen-year-old. Police said the teen veered into the opposite lane of traffic before overcorrecting the SUV. As a result, the Chevrolet Trailblazer rolled multiple times before coming to a stop on the roadway.

The man who was killed in the single vehicle car accident on Hwy 302 was identified by officials as Jose Miguel Montoya, 28, a resident of Kermit, Texas. Montoya was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

Damien Rojo, 29, and Alejandro Contreras, 32, and Marco Humberto Ayala-Rios, 26, were injured in the Texas auto accident. All three men were transported to Medical Center Hospital for the treatment of injuries endured in the car wreck.

Officials do not believe all of the occupants were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. Investigations are still underway as to why the teen veered into the other lane of traffic.

Rollover accidents sometimes leave family and friends with questions regarding their injuries and the details associated with their damages and loss. Despite the blame and initial opinions surrounding a single vehicle car accident, some injuries and death may have been prevented with adequate and properly operating auto equipment. Defective seatbelts, roof crush and inadequate glass can leave occupants at risk of experience serious life-threatening injuries that may have otherwise been prevented if equipment met standards or operated correctly.
