Car accident in Texas sends 3 people to the hospital

Three people in Texas, including a baby, were taken to the hospital after being involved in a collision at a local intersection. The car accident, between a pickup truck and small SUV, is believed to be the result of the pickup driver running a red light. The driver deemed responsible for this crash was arrested for his apparent role in the crash and is being charged with intoxication assault.

A 22-year-old woman and an 11-month-old baby were the passengers of the smaller SUV. The impact of the crash caused their car to roll several times before striking a pole and coming to a stop. Both passengers were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The baby's condition was listed as critical; injuries suffered included several fractures. A third unidentified person was also transported to the hospital after being partially ejected from one of the vehicles.

The intersection was closed for several hours while an investigation unit and clean-up crews worked the scene. The driver thought responsible for this incident, a 36-year-old male, was taken to the county jail with a bail in the amount of $40,000. Even though charges have been filed in this case, local authorities are still investigating the incident.

Serious injuries that result in a car accident can create not only a physical hardship to the victims, but may also cause financial strain and emotional distress. Those who have been injured in an accident don't have to face all these difficulties alone and may seek restitution to help in their recovery process. In this particular case, personal injury claims could be filed against the driver believed to be accountable for the incident. If he is found liable, a Texas court could grant the victims a monetary award to help with their recovery expenses and provide for their pain and suffering.
