Hundreds of Outages Reported After Crash in College StationJune 21, 2021
A single-vehicle crash was reported in College Station, Texas, on Tuesday, June 15th, 2021. The crash occurred on Texas Avenue, near Harvey Mitchell Parkway just before midnight. The College Station Police Department is the lead investigator in the case. A white or gray-colored SUV seemed to have struck an electric pole. The SUV seemed to not be heavily damaged though the same cannot be said about the pole.
The pole is owned by Bryan Texas Utilities. Due to the crash, a few hundred households near Carter Lake reported outages, and it is not known how long they were affected. As for the crash itself, it is unknown how many people were occupying the vehicle nor their current state. The crash, however, created enough disruption for the authorities to temporarily close access to the area. Authorities are still conducting an investigation of the crash.
If You Were Involved in a Single-Vehicle Crash, Will Your Auto-Insurance Cover You?
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, nearly 40% of all crashes that occur in Texas are single-vehicle crashes. If you happen to be part of this percentage, you may be wondering – will your auto insurance cover any injury or loss that you experience from a single-vehicle crash? Unfortunately, the answer isn’t as straightforward as you may think. In general, most basic auto insurance does not provide coverage for single-vehicle crashes. However, if you happen to be a passenger and not a driver, there may be a possibility for you. It is best to consult a lawyer about your case situation to learn more about your options.
