Fatal accident in Texas possibly the result of DUI

Driving while intoxicated is certainly nothing to laugh about. Many who choose to drive while under the influence do not believe they will harm anyone else in the process, however, DUI accidents are a big problem all across the country and responsible for far too many injuries and deaths. A recent fatal accident in Texas appears to be yet another tragic example of the effects of DUI.

Earlier this month a horrific accident occurred in Harris County. Apparently, a 23-year-old male driving a sports car was allegedly intoxicated and speeding when he collided with another vehicle. A 22-year-old male passenger in his car was killed in the crash. The driver of the other vehicle also suffered fatal injuries.

According to local authorities, the driver deemed responsible for this incident was supposedly driving at a high rate of speed when the accident occurred. They also reported that the individual appeared to be intoxicated. He was arrested and charges against him are pending. At this time specific charges against him have not been released.

A fatal accident caused by an intoxicated driver can have life-altering effects for the driver responsible, his or her victims and the victims' families. Along with criminal charges, the driver responsible for this accident may face wrongful death suits from the families of the victims. A wrongful death claim if successfully litigated in a Texas civil court can provide financial restitution to a deceased person's surviving family members, which would provide compensation for the financial losses they have incurred as a result of the crash and may also provide some sense of closure for the loss of their loved one.
