Teen driver injures several children in Texas car accident

Every driver has to start somewhere, and no one can improve their skills without hours of practice. However, the vast majority of these young drivers do not cause serious harm to people or property in the process of gaining experience. Unfortunately, one inexperienced Texas teen driver recently did cause a car accident that resulted in at least one child suffering critical injuries.

According to police reports, a 17-year-old driver, who was purportedly in possession of a learner's permit, was operating a vehicle with his father in the passenger seat. He allegedly confused the accelerator with the brake pedal. This action then caused the vehicle to crash into a day care center.

Several children and an adult employee all suffered injuries in the crash. One child reportedly suffered critical injuries. Two other youngsters required transportation by a medical helicopter to a trauma center. Some of the victims were expected to be released from care in a few days.

One child was still receiving care in the intensive care department for treatment of undisclosed injuries. Neither the teen driver or his father were hurt in this terrifying car accident. While the parent of the driver stated that his son was remorseful and shaken by the wreck, the parents of the young children -- as well as the adult victim -- may be forced to deal with both the physical injuries and the emotional wounds for months to come. Texas families in these tragic circumstances may choose to pursue financial compensation for their monetary losses that tend to accumulate in the days and weeks after these types of traumatic events.
