Father injured and infant killed in fatal accident in Texas

Even with cross walks, signs and flags, pedestrian accidents happen. Sometimes these collisions are the byproduct of a car crash occurring within the vicinity of pedestrians, giving them little-to-no time to get out of the way. One such recent fatal accident in Texas caused the death of a baby boy.

At the end of May, an accident in Arlington involving two vehicles and two pedestrians resulted in the death of a child. A father on a walk with his 8-month-old son in a stroller were both struck by a pickup truck while waiting to cross at a local intersection. The pickup was supposedly struck by another car before colliding with the pedestrians. Sadly, the baby boy died at the scene of the crash, and his father was taken to the hospital for care.

At this time, the cause of the collision is still under investigation. Witnesses claim the driver of the car ran a red light before striking the truck, though police have yet to confirm this claim. It is unknown if any charges will be filed against either driver in this case.

The loss of a child in a fatal accident is understandably heartbreaking and difficult to bear. The parents of this infant retain the right to file a wrongful death claim on his behalf against the driver deemed responsible for the crash. A personal injury claim on behalf of the father may also be filed. A civil court in Texas could grant this family financial compensation for each successfully litigated claim. This compensation could be highly beneficial in recouping from any medical or funeral expenses or any other monetary losses suffered as a result of the incident.
