Texas woman seriously injured in hit-and-run car accident

When one works as a first responder, one of the biggest fears may be arriving on a scene that involves a beloved family member or friend. This nightmare almost happened for a veteran Texas firefighter whose daughter was critically injured in a car accident. Fortunately for the father, he was on another call at the time.

The accident occurred on Valentine's night at approximately 7:20 in the evening. According to witnesses, the woman's vehicle was struck from behind by a pick up truck. The impact sent the 24-year-old woman's vehicle across the median and then headlong into on-coming traffic. Her car was then struck by another vehicle. The driver of the truck fled the scene of the crash.

The woman suffered serious injuries in the accident and spent about 14 days in the critical care unit of a local hospital. She suffered broken bones and head trauma, including bleeding in her brain. As a result of the brain injury, she experienced difficulties recalling details of the accident. However, police stated that they believe the driver of the truck was involved in a second accident minutes after the one that injured the woman.

Texas officials have requested help locating the driver whom they believe caused this serious car accident. The father of the victim credits his fellow emergency workers with saving his daughter's life and with assisting with fund raising efforts to help with the mounting medical expenses. However, once the driver has been located, the victim has the right to file a personal injury civil suit in order to seek compensation for the enormous medical and rehabilitation bills she incurred as a result of this horrible wreck. She may consult a personal injury attorney for advice concerning how to proceed with such litigation.
