Car accident in Texas leaves 3 hospitalized

A high-speed police chase has ended in injury according to local law enforcement agencies. A suspected thief fleeing the scene of the alleged crime caused a car accident while trying to escape. Texas police have not released the identities of the injured parties at this time, but it is assumed the man will face further charges related to his failed attempt to flee.

Police records indicate the man was suspected of stealing from a Wal-Mart and had fled the scene. When police caught up with him he attempted to negotiate a left-hand turn onto another street while traveling at a high rate of speed. His vehicle struck both a city dump truck and another car before coming to rest.

The man and the two occupants of the car were all taken to a local hospital for treatment. Police have not said what condition any of the three injured parties are in at the time of this writing. Apparently the driver of the dump truck was either not present or not injured in the crash. It is unknown whether the suspected thief is back in police custody.

The facts of this case appear fairly clear-cut. Considering the man who appears to have caused the car accident was already fleeing from another suspected crime scene, it seems that he will probably face several charges --not only with the alleged theft but also with this accident. Separately, the two injured parties are also entitled to file personal injury lawsuits against him in a Texas civil court setting, seeking reimbursement of financial losses sustained in the aftermath of the accident.
