Man killed in a fatal accident in Texas, another injured

A gathering of family and friends is typically supposed to be a joyous time. Unfortunately, a recent celebration for a local priest quickly came to an end after a tragic accident occurred during the party. This fatal accident in Texas, sadly, claimed the life of one man and seriously injured another pedestrian.

The celebration to honor a neighborhood priest's 50 years of service was taking place near the Galveston Seawall, when a truck drove over the Seawall and crashed into two pedestrians. One of the victims, the priest's brother who was in town for the celebrations, was killed in the collision. The other, a nearby pedestrian, was injured and taken to a local hospital for care.

The driver of the truck, a 49-year-old male, suffered minor injuries in the crash. He was arrested and is facing manslaughter and aggravated assault charges. Police have yet to determine if intoxication was a contributing factor in this accident.

It is certainly understandable that gaining closure after a fatal accident like this may seem difficult to do. In this case, not only is a family mourning the loss of their loved one, but the surviving victim is also left trying to mentally process the event while recouping from his injuries. Civil claims may be made against the driver deemed responsible for this incident on behalf of both victims. Each claim -- whether it is the surviving family's claim for wrongful death or the surviving victim's personal injury claim -- can be filed through a Texas civil court and, if litigation proves successful and liability is established, financial relief may be granted in each case.
