Car accident caused by alleged drunk driver kills 2 in Texas

Alcohol-related accidents are reported in the news quite frequently. Sadly, these incidents often have serious to fatal outcomes for the unsuspecting victims. In Texas, a car accident that involved an allegedly drunk driver claimed the lives of two individuals and injured three others earlier this month.

According to a spokesman for the Arlington Police Department, a 38-year-old man was arrested in connection with an accident that occurred at a local intersection. This individual supposedly ran a red light and collided with another vehicle, causing that car to spin and strike a light pole. One victim reportedly died at the scene of the accident, and another died shortly after at a local hospital. Two other individuals were being treated at a medical facility with unspecified injuries.

The individual deemed responsible for this collision was also injured and treated by medical staff before he was booked into jail. He was charged with intoxication manslaughter. No information was reported concerning bail or the scheduling of any future court dates regarding this matter.

A car accident like this one can have devastating effects on the surviving victims and the family members of the deceased. Medical bills, funeral costs, lost wages and a number of other financial losses that can be associated with this accident can leave victims and their families struggling not only emotionally and physically, but economically as well. A number of legal remedies may be applied to help including filing personal injury claims for the surviving victims and wrongful death and survival action claims with regard to the deceased victim. These claims can be filed on an individual basis, and each claim that is successfully litigated in a Texas civil court could result in a monetary judgment for the damages sustained.
