Fatal accident at ATM machine

On any given day, hundreds of ATM's in Texas will be used by consumers to make quick banking transactions such as withdrawals and deposits. While using these machines, individuals are usually more concerned about fraudulent activity or theft rather than any physical danger. In a recent fatal accident, a young man tragically lost his life after a pickup truck slammed into the back of his car while parked at an ATM.

Early Sunday morning, seconds after the victim pulled up to the ATM, a pickup truck slammed into the back of the car sending both vehicles into two other unoccupied cars and destroying the ATM. The victim was killed instantly, and the driver of the pickup truck was taken to a hospital where he died later. As the crash remains under investigation, family and friends of the deceased are trying to piece this tragic puzzle together.

Police stated that the driver of the pickup truck may have been speeding and appeared to not use his brakes before the crash. Until toxicology reports come back, investigators remain unable to determine the actual cause of the accident. As questions remain unanswered, the victim's family may be entitled to pursue civil actions against the family of the driver who is believed to have been at fault.

Losing a loved one is never easy, especially when unexpected. Texas families who experience a similar tragedy should consider all their legal options before filing a civil suit against a potentially responsible party. Any received compensation can help alleviate the cost of any medical care or other bills incurred as a result of a fatal accident.
