Car accident in Texas results in fatality and injuries

It would seem that Texas has already seen its fair share of fatal car accidents this year. Unfortunately, being involved in a car accident is a reality for a lot of people, and these accidents often result in serious injury or fatality to those involved. A recent accident in Spicewood had tragic results for the victims involved and has police still trying to determine exactly what happened.

Public Safety officials have reported that the accident was caused when a red pickup was attempting to make a left-hand turn and was rear-ended by a white pickup. Two people were in the red pickup at the time of the accident. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, and his passenger was transported to a nearby medical center for treatment of critical injuries. The driver of the white pickup also suffered from minor injuries in the crash.

Local authorities still haven't been able to determine what caused the driver of the white pickup to rear-end the other. So far, they have not been able to conclude if alcohol, speed or any other factors contributed to the cause of the incident. It has not been reported if any criminal charges are pending against the driver responsible. The investigation is still underway.

A car accident that ends in such a tragic way can be life changing to all those involved as well as their families. Pain and suffering, medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of wages and even loss of future income can all create emotional, physical and financial hardships. If negligence is found and liability established against the driver deemed responsible, the family of the deceased and the surviving victim may be entitled to pursue a wrongful death claim and personal injury claim against him. A Texas civil court could award the victims of this horrible tragedy monetary relief to help compensate for some of the losses they have suffered.
