Toddler is sole survivor of recent car accident in Texas

Life changes so quickly, and without notice. Being involved in a car accident can mess up your day, but it can also leave lifelong scars, both physically and emotionally, that will never fade. This past week in Texas a man in a pickup truck that was reportedly stolen caused an accident that will ultimately leave these kinds of scars for at least seven people.

Texas Highway Patrol recently engaged in a pursuit of the vehicle that ultimately ended up traveling into a busy intersection at high speeds. The truck collided with three other vehicles. Six people were killed and six others injured. The driver of the truck then ran from the scene before he was captured by the authorities.

Reports indicate that seven family members traveling in a Chevy Suburban were impacted in such a way that six members of the family were killed immediately. The only survivor of that vehicle was a 3-year-old boy. His parents and all four of his siblings (ages 12 months to 6 years old) were all immediately pronounced dead. The toddler was taken by helicopter to an unknown medical facility for treatment for his injuries.

Four other adults and two other children sustained injuries that required medical treatment as well. A mother and her two children were in the second vehicle in the collision, while three other adults were in the third. All six injured were either released or listed in stable condition after the accident. It is still not yet known why the Highway Patrol officer engaged in the pursuit that ended so tragically.

Losing so much at such a young age will most likely be hard on the toddler in the years to come and the upcoming weeks and months will be hard for everyone involved. Those involved in the car accident may obtain legal representation for personal injury claims, and the family of the victims may also choose to file wrongful death claims. In any of these situations, the empathy factor is at an all-time high for those that were taken or endangered in this tragic misfortune.
