Car accident in Texas result in double fatality and injuries

Car accidents occur for a variety of reasons. Some are weather related, some are due to distractions or impairment and some don't have a cause that is immediately known. Whatever the cause, accidents can have life-changing consequences. Recently, a tragic car accident in Texas claimed two lives and left three others with injuries.

The car accident occurred recently in Upshur County on State Highway 154. A 30-year-old woman driving in the westbound lane supposedly lost control of her vehicle and struck a car in the eastbound lane. She was killed in the collision, and her two passengers were transported to medical facilities for treatment. The driver of the eastbound car, a 16-year-old male, was also killed in the crash. His passenger, a 16-year-old female, required medical attention.

This accident greatly impacted the local community. Grief counselors have been made available at the teenagers high school for those needing assistance during this difficult time. Currently, police are still in the process of investigating this incident. Information was not readily available regarding what caused the driver of the westbound car to lose control of the vehicle

A car accident like this one will have lasting emotional and financial consequences for the victims and their family members. Though the driver deemed responsible for this collision didn't survive, wrongful death and personal injury claims can be made against her estate on behalf of the victims. Claims that are successfully litigated may lead to a monetary award by a Texas civil court, which could provide some financial relief for the unexpected expense produced by this crash.
