Car accident in Texas results in fatality and injuries

The holiday season -- for many -- is about family time, visiting relatives and traveling. This often leads to an increase in overall traffic, which in turn also means an increase in accidents. While this holiday season is drawing to a close, it unfortunately hasn't been without its fair share of tragedy. A car accident in Texas is considered responsible for the death of a woman from another state and injuries to the others involved.

The accident occurred recently in Midland County. A 65-year-old female was driving eastbound on a local interstate along with a passenger when her car was struck by a sedan in a westbound lane. The driver of the sedan had apparently lost control and went through the median before hitting the victim's car head-on. Both victims were transported to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries. The current condition of the passenger is unknown, but sadly, the driver later succumbed to her injuries.

The driver of the sedan was also taken to a medical center for treatment. Police have not released any information as to the cause of the accident. It is also unknown if any criminal charges are pending in this case.

A car accident can have tragic consequences to everyone involved. The victims and their families are left coping with the loss of their loved one and facing physical recovery. The driver responsible for this incident, aside from possible criminal charges, may also face both a personal injury claim and a wrongful death claim. If negligence is found in the cause of the crash and liability is affirmed, a Texas civil court could award monetary compensation to those who have been negatively affected by this incident.
