Wrongful death of a Texas woman after an unusual accident

Accidents between motor-vehicles happen; it's an unfortunate part of life. Many of these accidents occur in a split second, leaving no time to react, and they are often incidents that could have been easily prevented. In any case, an accident that results in the supposedly wrongful death of another is certainly something to be taken seriously. An unusual accident, which occurred recently in Texas, is responsible for the death of a woman and undoubtedly has her family looking for answers.

The accident happened earlier this month in Madison County. The victim, a 66-year-old female, was driving westbound on a local highway when cargo from an eastbound semi fell from the truck and crushed her vehicle. The big rig was apparently hauling oilfield equipment, which broke free from the straps and bounced onto the road. The victim was killed in the crash.

Traffic was detoured around the incident for several hours while local police worked the scene. At this time it is unknown if any citations or charges have been filed in this matter. The identity of the truck driver has not been released to the public.

While it is still unclear what caused the straps to break free from the equipment, one thing is clear: a woman was killed as a result. The unexpected loss of a loved one in such a tragic manner can be difficult for anyone to bear. If negligence is found, by either the truck driver or the driver's employer, to have been a contributing factor in the cause of this woman's seemingly wrongful death, a Texas civil court could grant her surviving family members financial compensation for their loss.
