Fiery crash near Fredericksburg kills 2 people, critically injuries 1

GILLESPIE COUNTY, Texas — A terrible two-vehicle collision on Highway 87 near Fredericksburg claimed the lives of two people Feb. 25 and seriously injured another.

Local authorities responded to the accident near the intersection of Hwy 87 N and RR 2323 at about 6:30 a.m. Both of the vehicles involved were fully engulfed in flames when the first responders arrived.

The two decedents were pronounced dead at the scene. Emergency response personnel transported a third to a hospital with critical injuries.

Authorities have not released any additional information about the people involved or their ongoing investigation into the accident.

Commentary on the fatal collision in Fredericksburg, Texas

This heartbreaking accident has undoubtedly shaken the community and left many families grieving. We have little information based on the reports provided to discern the cause of this accident. However, it is clear that the post-collision fire is unacceptable and warrants further attention.

When unraveling a serious accident, it is important to consider all potential causes of both the accident itself and the resulting injuries. This process can become very complex when we have a different cause of the accident and the injuries. In this case, we know that an accident occurred before the post-collision fire. However, we do not know if the post-collision fire contributed to the injuries. Whether the post-collision fire played a role in this tragic outcome is important because the grieving families deserve justice for their loss from all parties responsible for the resulting injuries.

An independent investigation will need to be conducted before unraveling this accident and finding justice for those wronged. Until that time, I extend my condolences to the families affected and pray for the injured to make a full and speedy recovery.
