Texas DUI wrecks result in fatal motorcycle accident

Texas highways can be hazardous for drivers enclosed in the largest of vehicles, but motorcyclists are especially in danger. They are easy to miss by other drivers under even the most perfect weather and road conditions.  However, when a motorcycle accident is caused by an impaired driver on a crowded freeway, tragic results generally occur.

According to a recent article, a woman has been charged with felony murder after causing a fatal motorcycle crash on the 610 West Loop near Houston. Two separate parties that were involved in earlier wrecks with the driver were following her to exchange information and witnessed the tragic wreck. The accidents caused a five-car pileup on the highway and blocked the road for several hours.

Police state that the driver was speeding northbound along the freeway when her vehicle struck the motorcyclist. Witnesses on the scene stated that the driver continued on her way even after colliding with the motorcycle, but she was eventually stopped by witnesses at the scene. The motorcycle driver died at the site of the wreck, and the woman apparently admitted to police that she had been driving while intoxicated. Police subsequently found that she had two children, ages two and seven, in her car in unrestrained car seats.

The surviving loved ones of the victim of a similar motorcycle accident could benefit from contacting an attorney in Texas whose practice focuses on personal injury. Many expenses can result from such a tragic event that are unexpected, such as medical bills, funeral costs, loss of wages and other financial obligations. An attorney can discuss the various legal options available during such a difficult time.
