DALLAS, TEXAS (December 26, 2017) – Jonathan Dominguez has been identified as the man struck by a DART bus on Tuesday, according to an article by CBSLocal. (map)
The accident happened just before midnight near Samuell Boulevard and Hunnicut Road. A DART bus was making a turn at the intersection when the driver heard something, so he exited the bus and looked around, only to find 32 year old Jonathan Dominguez underneath the bus.
Jonathan was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was tragically pronounced dead as a result of his injuries. The accident remains under investigation at this time to determine cause and liability. Lexton Law is still investigating this accident and will continue to update this article as more information becomes available.
The Dallas Area Rapid Transit system has been involved in many fatal accidents in the past. The DART system is responsible for the travels of thousands of commuters a day, and it is no surprise that the large, heavy vehicles are often involved in collisions. Buses are hard to maneuver, slow to stop, and their drivers often are overworked and tired. There is a deadline to file a claim against a government entity, so do not hesitate.
“Sadly, there are no words that can comfort all family members and friends as they cope with such tragic loss,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all parties affected in this tragedy as they try to piece together what happened.”
