Car accident in Texas leaves 2 dead and others injured

During the holiday season roads seem busier than usual. As people attend parties, head-out or return from vacation and attend family events, traffic can be brutal. Unfortunately, busier roads often lead to more car accidents. A fatal car accident in Texas is currently being investigated by local police. The crash, which occurred on Interstate 30, left two people dead and others injured.

According to law enforcement officials, a small SUV was struck from behind by a larger vehicle. The impact resulted in the vehicles catching fire, killing a father and son in the smaller car. Another passenger in the victim's car, a female, and the driver of the other vehicle were both transported to nearby medical facilities for treatment.

Traffic was slowed and an exit was closed for several hours during the accident investigation. At this time, it has not been decided if the driver of the larger vehicle will face charges. Failure to control speed was one of the possible charges reported.

The surviving victim of this car accident may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim in an effort to recoup any financial losses she has encountered as a result of her injuries. Wrongful death claims may also be filed on behalf of both deceased victims, by a surviving spouse or another family representative. Each of these claims would typically be litigated in a Texas civil court, and negligence would have to be established before compensation could be awarded. If the driver deemed responsible for this wreck is found to have been negligent in his or her actions leading to the crash, a monetary judgment could be ordered for any and all damages that are considered recoverable under state laws.
