Patricia Broussard Injured in Orange County Two-Vehicle Crash on Highway 62

Orange County, Texas (September 17, 2021) – According to the Texas DPS, one person was killed, and four others were injured Thursday night in a head-on collision in Orange County.

The fatal crash happened around 7:50 p.m., September 16, in the 17000 block of State Highway 62 near Tulane Road.

DPS said a man was driving a 2017 Nissan Frontier pickup truck southbound while a woman was driving a 1991 Ford Expedition northbound.

The Nissan crossed into the northbound lane, for unknown reasons, and crashed head-on into the Ford.

The Nissan driver was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not been released.

The Ford driver, Patricia Broussard, 39, from Orange, and her three juvenile passengers were taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital. Broussard was listed in serious condition.

The crash remains under investigation.

“When a person has suffered a grave personal injury in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, the most overwhelming emotion they feel is a sense of injustice. They often ask how such a life-altering event could have happened to them,” attorney Joel A. Gordon said. “The next question usually is, who can help me?” Mr. Gordon added.

A legal advocate can represent an injury victim or the family of a deceased victim. The attorney will file a claim on behalf of the victim and will have the responsibility of citing existing codes, laws or statutes which were violated.
