Alleged drunk driver kills 3 members of a family in car accident

One of the best ways to renew family ties and build memories is through vacations. Unfortunately, those memories can become nightmares in the event that a car accident results in the deaths of loved ones. Recently, such a tragedy occurred when a family decided to visit Texas on vacation.

The police report indicated that the deadly collision was caused when a allegedly intoxicated driver was operating his car along a local road in Austin. At some point, the 41-year-old driver lost the ability to control his car, and it veered off of its travel lane and broke through steel cabling that separated the opposing lanes of traffic. His vehicle then collided head-on with another vehicle that was transporting an out-of-state family here on vacation. 

The collision killed the 38-year-old wife and 14-year-old son who were passengers in the car. The father, a 41-year-old man, suffered critical injuries in the wreck. He was transported to a local medical facility where he remained on life support for a few days following the crash. Unfortunately, his injuries proved to be too severe, and he passed away. The victims' 10-year-old daughter was also in the vehicle, but, fortunately, she suffered only minor injuries.

Texas officials stated that the purportedly intoxicated driver's blood alcohol level exceeded the state's maximum by more than twice. It is unclear what charges he may be facing in connection to this horrifying car accident that robbed a young child of her entire family. Surviving family members who find themselves in these unimaginable circumstances often must also cope with substantial monetary losses in the months following these fatal collisions. A compassionate and skilled personal injury attorney could provide information and assistance in filing a wrongful death civil suit in an effort to recoup some of the documented financial damages that stemmed from these often preventable crashes.
