Van flees scene after fatal accident in Texas; 1 dead, 3 injured

A white van fled the scene after causing two vehicles to collide on a Texas roadway recently. The fatal accident killed a 43-year-old mother and injured her two daughters and the driver with whom she collided. Investigators are hoping that any witnesses will contact the Department of Public Safety in New Caney with information about the accident.

The accident occurred around 7 a.m. as the woman was driving her SUV westbound on FM 1485 to take her daughters to school. According to reports, a white van pulled out of a gas station as she was approaching an intersection. A 20-year-old man was driving his truck in the eastbound lane when the van pulled out in front of him and he ended up in a ditch. The SUV collided into the truck, and the van reportedly went around them and headed eastbound.

According to reports, the woman died on impact. One daughter suffered a broken leg, while the other was reported to be in stable condition. The driver of the pickup truck sustained multiple injuries, including a ruptured spleen. After being transported to one hospital, he was airlifted to another in critical condition.

Investigators are working to piece together the details of this fatal accident and search for the driver of the van. In the meantime, one young man faces a long road to recovery, and the loved ones of the decedent must prepare to lay her to rest. They may find it helpful to seek advice about their options under our personal injury laws in Texas. Any compensation awarded in a personal injury or wrongful death suit may help cover medical and funeral expenses resulting from the accident. In addition, it may give all the parties involved some peace of mind during a very difficult time.
