Fatal accident in Texas claims life of a mother, injures daughter

No one expects that a night out with family will end in a horrific accident, forever changing the family dynamic. A tragic fatal accident in Texas recently claimed the life of a mother and injured her teenage daughter. While all fatal accidents seem senseless, according to local authorities, the events that led up to this incident make this accident seem even more so.

In the late-night hours in Pasadena, a woman was allegedly caught shoplifting at a local retail store. In her attempt to get away, she fled from the store in a pickup truck. The accident occurred as the supposed shoplifter ran a red light and collided with a car carrying the mother and daughter. The mother was apparently killed instantly, while the daughter needed to be transported to the local hospital. The teenager's injuries were not life-threatening, but her current condition is unknown.

The driver responsible for the accident was arrested, and charges against her are pending for both the shoplifting and the accident. Specific charges against her were not reported. The amount of merchandise she supposedly stole only added up to about $50.

Regardless of the events that lead up a the fatal accident, those involved and their family members will likely never be the same again. A family now has to cope with the loss of a loved one, and a daughter has to heal from injuries sustained. The family may choose to file both a personal injury claim and a wrongful death claim for the victims of this crash. A Texas civil court could grant monetary compensation to help recoup financial damages that may have resulted from the crash.
