1 dead, several injured in multi-car accident

A crash that recently occurred in South Austin is said to be the 60th fatal collision for the area in 2015. An elderly woman was killed in the car accident that reportedly involved multiple vehicles. Several other individuals were injured in the wreck.

The accident happened at the intersection of Manchaca Road and Slaughter Lane, just after noon on July 31. According to a recent report, the driver of a car slammed into two vehicles, then proceeded through the intersection. Other cars waiting at and in the intersection were also struck by the same vehicle and debris from the initial accident. A 73-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene, and five other individuals were transported to a medical facility for treatment.

Police are still in the process of investigating this incident. At this time, it is unknown if any impairing substances may have contributed to the wreck. It has not been reported whether the person believed responsible for the crash has been identified, or if any charges are pending.

Those residing in Austin or elsewhere who have suffered injuries or who have lost loved ones in collisions such as this one are likely to have a number of questions that they will need answered. The topics of these questions may include justice, liability, potential legal claims and recoverable damages -- among various others. In accordance with Texas laws, the victims of this car accident, including the family members of the deceased, may seek compensation for the financial losses they have likely experienced as a direct result of this crash. A monetary judgment may be achieved if negligence can be established successfully in court for each individual case.
