Car accident in Texas claims the lives of 2 children, injures mom

Two-lane highways are commonly seen across Texas. While these types of roads make sense for the amount of traffic in the areas in which they are placed, these roads can be dangerous -- particularly when drivers attempt to pass slower moving vehicles. Sadly, a car accident on such a road recently occurred, and the results were quite tragic.

Reports of a serious accident in the eastern part of the state, near the Gulf Coast, were recently released. The driver of a sedan, heading eastbound on a two-lane highway, apparently attempted to pass a slower moving vehicle before the accident occurred. He reportedly lost control of his car and slammed into an SUV in the westbound lane. Two children in the SUV were killed in the crash while the driver, presumed to be the mother of the children, suffered significant injuries.

The driver believed responsible for this wreck was also injured and transported to a hospital for medical care. Police are still in the process of investigating the overall cause of this crash and do believe speed may have been a factor. Blood tests are also pending to rule out intoxication. Charges are likely pending in this case.

This car accident has drastically altered the lives of all those involved. The surviving victim of this crash may pursue legal remedies in order to recoup the financial losses she has endured as a result of this incident. These include a personal injury claim for herself and wrongful death claims for each of her children, which can be filed in a Texas civil court. While the compensation offered for successfully litigated claims can't replace the lives lost, it can help this mother focus on her recovery and grieve the passing of her children without having to worry about finances.
