Car accident in Texas kills 1 man, injures his wife

An afternoon drive ended tragically for an elderly couple in Texas. A recent crash on Seawall Boulevard in Galveston claimed the life of one man and left others with injuries. The car accident was also apparently responsible for shutting down traffic for over five hours while police and clean-up crews worked the scene.

The driver of a minivan, a 72-year-old man, was killed when the driver of an SUV supposedly attempted to make a U-turn and crashed into his vehicle. A passenger in the minivan, reported to be the victim’s spouse, suffered serious injuries and was transported to a local hospital for care. The driver of the SUV, a male of unknown age, was also injured but has been listed to be in stable condition.

Police are still investigating this collision. Contributing factors have yet to be identified and it is unknown if alcohol played a part. At this time, charges have not been filed against anyone involved in this tragic incident.

A car accident with fatal consequences is difficult for any family to bear. In this instance, not only is a wife having to heal from her own injuries, but she now faces to task of having to bury her husband. Medical expenses, funeral expenses and other costs that accumulate from incidents like this can cause a significant financial deficit that shouldn’t have to be shouldered alone. The surviving victim of this crash retains the right to pursue both a wrongful death claim on behalf of her husband and a personal injury claim for herself against the individual deemed responsible. Claims that are successfully litigated in a Texas civil court could result in a monetary judgment; providing some financial relief for the economic losses suffered in the crash.
