2 killed in Texas motorcycle accident

Two men were recently killed in an accident in Texas. The motorcycle accident reportedly occurred in the Austin area on Jan. 4. Authorities are still investigating this incident, but they believe that the driver of the car involved failed to yield the right of way, causing the crash.

According to a local report, a 24-year-old male was riding his motorcycle on Howard Lane in the 4600 block -- near the MoPac Expressway -- when his vehicle struck a car. Authorities say that the driver of the car was turning onto the street from a private driveway when the motorcycle hit the driver's side of the vehicle. Authorities say the the motorcycle caught on fire as a result of the wreck. The motorcyclist died shortly after impact.

The driver of the car -- a 51-year-old male -- also died in the accident. Aside from this individual failing to yield, it is unknown if any other factors contributed to this incident. The Texas Department of Public safety is still working on this case.

Whether in Texas or elsewhere, it is not uncommon for a motorcycle accident to result in fatality. Even though the driver believed responsible for this incident did not survive, the motorcyclist's loved one's may still pursue compensation for their losses by filing claims against this individual's estate. A wrongful death claim that is navigated successfully may result in an award of fair and full compensation, which could certainly help the victim's family as they take care of the end-of-life expenses for their loved one and deal with other financial losses.
