A woman’s life was snuffed out in a car crash in Texas. Three other individuals were injured in the two-car wreck. These types of accidents often occur due to driver negligence, in which case the reportedly at-fault driver may be held financially responsible for any injuries or deaths resulting from the collision.
How the crash happened
The recent car collision took place on a recent Saturday night along FM 3053. According to police, a 47-year-old man was driving a car west along a local roadway and did not yield to oncoming traffic on FM 3053. A pickup truck on FM 3053 collided with the car’s passenger side.
The driver of the car was injured and taken to a medical center, although his injuries were considered serious. Tragically, his passenger, a 68-year-old woman, was pronounced deceased at the accident scene. The driver and passenger in the pickup also suffered injuries not thought to be incapacitating and were also transported to a medical center.
Legal recourse available
The surviving loved ones of the woman who died in this Texas car crash have the right to file a wrongful death claimagainst the driver of the car, seeking reimbursement of monetary damages sustained due to the crash. Likewise, the two injured individuals from the pickup truck may have grounds to file personal injury claims against the car driver. Successfully litigated claims may lead to monetary damages to cover any hospital bills, funeral costs and other documented losses stemming from the motor vehicle collision.
