Triple Fatality in Grand Prairie on East Bound I-30 Feb 18th
In the early morning hours at approximately 12:50 AM on February 18, 2022, a tragedy occurred on eastbound Interstate 30 near Belt Line Road when a Ford occupied by a lone driver traveled into the wrong lane and smashed into a vehicle carrying two passengers reported CBS news. Grand Prairie police and emergency services rapidly responded to the situation. Unfortunately, all three of the occupants of the vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene upon the first responder’s arrival at the crash zone.
According to the National Safety Council, less than one-quarter of all driving that takes place happens at night. Despite the lack of time on roads during nighttime hours, night driving accounts for over 40% of all fatal car accidents. This is due to a variety of factors including poor visibility from streetlights, and the headlights of a car not being strong enough to see dangers on the road until it is too late. Also, statistics show that 2/3 of all motor vehicle fatalities that occurred between 12 AM and 3 AM are related to drunken or impaired driving which adds a massive risk to getting on the road in those late hours. Impairment also includes drug usage or even exhaustion from a long day, which could lead to drivers sleeping at the wheel.
Lord as we walk together down the road of life guide us to salvation through our darkest hours, and through them, we may come to find peace and acceptance through you Lord. Please watch over our loved ones, and give us the strength and grace to accept your will, Lord. We pray all these things in your name lord. Amen.
