1 dead and multiple injured in Texas highway car accident

Late night traffic collisions on a highway often end with tragic results. Even if drivers are not inebriated, the lack of adequate light can cause drivers to overlook other vehicles on the road. Also, the speed of vehicles on freeways can cause traumatic injuries in the event that they collide with others on the road. Recently, a car accident on the Katy Freeway in Texas claimed the life of one woman and injured six others.

According to police, the accident occurred at approximately 1 a.m. on Sunday, October 20. A blue SUV was driving eastbound along the Katy Freeway when it crashed into the back of a slower-moving black car. Upon impact, the SUV spun around and was struck head on by a gold car.

When emergency personnel arrived, the driver and female passenger of the SUV were transported to Ben Taub Hospital. Tragically, the woman passed away later that evening from injuries she received in the accident. Five other people involved in the wreck were also taken to nearby hospitals. At this time, police have not determined the cause of the accident and have not stated whether or not alcohol was a factor.

If the SUV driver is found to have been under the influence, he could face criminal charges. Separately, he could also face civil charges brought about by victims and surviving loved ones. Those facing a similar car accident in Texas may be able to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver, seeking reimbursement for any monetary and non-monetary damages that occurred as a result of the wreck.
