Texas motorcycle accident blamed on drunk driver claims 2 lives

When traveling on the highway, it is often difficult for drivers to determine the speed of other vehicles on the road. This is especially true when the vehicle traveling in front of a driver is a motorcycle, as bikes do not have as many lights as other vehicles to announce their presence. At night, and particularly in situations that involve alcohol, drivers can find themselves in precarious situations seemingly without notice. These situations often end with disastrous results, particularly when a car or truck driver strikes a motorcycle. A recent motorcycle accident took the lives of two people on a Texas highway.

According to authorities, a 38-year-old man was driving southbound on Texas 95 on June 26. Five miles south of Elgin, he failed to control his speed and crashed into the back of a motorcycle. The driver and passenger of the motorcycle were gravely injured and were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Police have arrested the driver. He has been charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter with a vehicle. The driver is currently being held in the Bastrop County Jail on a $150,000 bond and is awaiting court proceedings.

Surviving family members of Texas victims involved in a similar fatal motorcycle accident could benefit from contacting an attorney who focuses on personal injury litigation. 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.  Attorneys with experience in dealing with personal injury will be in the best position to guide family members through this difficult time, and discuss the various legal options available for loved ones to seek financial reparations.
