3 hurt in Texas car accident

A recent collision between a car and an ambulance in Texas resulted in three people suffering unspecified injuries. The car accident reportedly occurred mid-November in the Austin area. Authorities are still in the process of investigating this incident.

This particular crash occurred during the morning of Nov. 17 at about Wells Branch Parkway and Interstate 35. The southbound turnaround had to be closed for some time to allow for authorities to work the scene. At this time, it is unclear as to how this accident happened, but it is believed that a private ambulance somehow collided with another vehicle. Both occupants of the car were injured and required transportation to a nearby medical facility for care. The extent of the injuries for each individual is unknown.

The ambulance driver was also hurt in the accident. However, he refused transportation to the hospital -- opting to drive himself instead. Police have not indicated if any charges are pending against either of the drivers.

A car accident with injuries can have life-changing consequences for the victims, as the physical, financial and emotional damages can certainly take their toll over time. Those in Texas who have suffered due to the actions of others may have legal recourse. Personal injury claims may be filed and litigated in civil court. In this particular case, if it is found that the ambulance driver was responsible for the wreck, the victims may be successful in pursuing claims against him and his employer. If negligence is properly established by appropriate evidence, the victims may be awarded monetary judgments for damages incurred.
