Hit-and-run driver causes fatal motorcycle accident

Even in a hit-and-run situation, there is a personal injury recovery for the victim by tapping into the victim's own uninsured motorists' coverage on his or her auto insurance policy. Underinsured and uninsured motorists' coverage is offered to each Texas vehicle owner to cover those unpredictable situations where the at-fault driver either doesn't have enough insurance, has no insurance, or flees from the accident and disappears. This happened in El Paso at about 9:50 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28 in a motorcycle accident, when a man driving a motorcycle was killed by a hit-and-run driver.

A motorcycle accident takes the life of a Texas man

Understandably, motorcycles can be dangerous pieces of equipment. Even for the most experienced of motorcyclists, bikes are simply not built for absolute safety, primarily due to the lack of protection when a collision occurs with a larger, enclosed vehicle. The negligence of other drivers can result in severe injuries, and even death, for motorcyclists. This, unfortunately, appears to have been the case with a motorcycle accident in Texas recently.

Fatal accident in Texas takes three lives in 2-vehicle wreck

The wrongful or premature left-hand turn has accounted for a huge toll of human suffering in the annals of vehicular accidents in the United States. One such horrific fatal accident occurred recently in Texas on U.S. 290 at Belterra Drive in Hays County, according to Department of Public Safety officials. At about 1:23 p.m. a westbound Honda Accord was turning left onto Belterra when it was struck by a pickup traveling east in the far right lane of 290, a DPS official said.

Fatal accident takes truck driver's life in Texas collision

There's a doctrine in the law of negligence based on a driver being confronted with an emergency. If someone else puts you in an emergency situation where you have to react instantly, the law will not second-guess your choice of action done in a split-second attempt to escape injury. That issue could potentially come up in Texas regarding a fatal accident that occurred in Scurry County on Monday morning, Sept. 9.

Fatal accident kills 20-year-old female in pickup rollover crash

Once a vehicle goes out of control on a highway its movements can't be predicted. When it hits an object, people can be ejected and thrown for distances into the air and the vehicle itself can ricochet and tumble in all directions. In an Aug. 24 fatal accident in Texas, the driver of a Dodge Ram pickup lost control on Loop 375 near Railroad Drive in Northeast El Paso. Police believe that the vehicle was speeding eastbound on Loop 375, and when the driver lost control it hit the concrete median barrier and flipped high enough in the air to cross over the barrier and tumble into the westbound lanes.
