Family loses child in fatal accident on Texas interstate

Traveling the Texas highways during rush hour is usually not worse than an aggravation to the majority of drivers. However, with such heavy traffic, there is always a risk of becoming involved in a serious or even fatal accident. Unfortunately, a recent rush hour crash led to a family losing their beloved daughter.

According to the police report, a passenger sedan was traveling along Loop 1604 near the interchange of I-10 around 6 in the evening on a recent weekday. While it is unknown how many passengers were riding in the vehicle, a 13-year-old girl was seated in the rear compartment area. For reasons that are yet unclear, the sedan was smashed into from the rear by another vehicle that was traveling behind it.

The collision resulted in the teen suffering critical trauma to her head. Emergency responders transported her to a nearby medical center. Tragically, the girl's injuries were not survivable, and the girl later died at the hospital. It is unknown whether anyone else suffered any injuries in this wreck.

Texas officials are still conducting their investigation into this fatal accident but have stated that they do not suspect that intoxicating substances played a role. It has not been announced if the driver of the second vehicle will face any charges in connection to the death of the child. Her family will now have to endure her loss while attempting to put their lives back together. Along with the emotional suffering that this family is likely enduring, they may also now be burdened with significant financial damages. Families who are in these untenable circumstances may choose to seek compensation for their losses through the filing of a civil suit against the party or parties who may be responsible for these tragic collisions.
