Fatal accident in Texas kills pedestrian

A late-night outing for two young men in Texas was suddenly disrupted by a horrific accident. The pedestrians ended up being victims of a recent hit-and-run incident that occurred in North Austin. The fatal accident left one man dead and another with severe injuries.

The two 20-year-old men were walking near a local intersection when what is believed to be a black SUV slammed into both of them and quickly fled the scene. The hit-and-run incident killed one of the men at the scene of the accident, while the other victim was transported to the local hospital. The survivor's injuries are reported to be life threatening. No other details relating to his current condition have been released.

Local authorities are still looking for the driver responsible. The description of the vehicle involved has been released to the public. Police are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to come forward.

Auto-pedestrian accidents often result in severe injury or death. Survivors of these types of accidents are many times left with life-changing injuries as well as financial and emotional stress. Families that have lost a loved one in a fatal accident like this one are often left looking for answers while grieving over their loss. When the driver of the SUV is located, and if liability is affirmed by a Texas civil court, the surviving victim may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim for monetary damages. The family of the victim killed in this tragedy may also be entitled to file a wrongful death claim to recoup any financial damages as a result of the accident.
