Multi-vehicle fatal accident in Texas kills 3

No matter how vigilant a driver may be, not every hazard can be avoided. Along with the heavy traffic that clogs Texas freeways on a daily basis, there are other dangers posed by drivers that may be impaired or otherwise distracted. One recent fatal accident appears to have resulted from a driver's negligence.

The accident report stated that the wreck involved several vehicles and was apparently caused by a driver who was purportedly headed south in the northbound lanes of Interstate 45. That driver then collided with a smaller vehicle head-on. A car traveling behind the second one smashed into its rear. Two other vehicles were also caught up in the tragedy crash.

A passenger in the second car was declared dead on the scene. Two other occupants were transported to a local hospital, but later died from their injuries. The driver of the third car was injured and was admitted for care. Moreover, the two passengers in the first vehicle were also seriously injured. The occupants in the other two vehicles were not hurt.

Texas officials have not completed their investigation and have not filed any criminal charges as of yet. However, if the wrong-way driver is later determined to have been at fault, he or she may face several criminal charges regarding this tragic accident. The seriously injured victims of this fatal accident as well as the surviving families of the ones who died are entitled to file a civil lawsuit against the party or parties believed responsible in an attempt to  gain recompense for their monetary damages.
