Intoxication cited in fatal car accident near Houston

A head-on car accident can be one of the most destructive types of collisions on the roads today. Often, this type of car accident claims the lives of one or more people. A recent Texas car accident cost the life of one woman and resulted in an intoxication manslaughter charge for the driver believed responsible for the crash. 

On March 4, 2016, a man was traveling eastbound at approximately 4 a.m. According to authorities, he attempted to pass another driver on the right side, but lost control of his pickup truck.  His vehicle spun into the westbound lane of traffic, resulting in the collision.

As the truck veered into the oncoming westbound lane, it was struck by a white car in both the front and right side. Both vehicles came to rest on the north side of the highway. The woman who was driving the car was declared dead at the scene of the accident. The driver of the pickup was transported to the hospital where authorities determined he had been driving while intoxicated.  The police have filed charges of intoxication manslaughter against him.

Dealing with death caused by an impaired driver can be devastating for the families of deceased victims, as it is a car accident that can be easily prevented. Even while dealing with the tragic results of such a wreck, surviving families have the right to retain legal counsel, as they may be eligible for compensation through the successful presentation of a wrongful death claim. A lawyer familiar with the Texas civil justice system can best guide a family through this difficult time.
