Road rage incident leads to fatal accident in Texas

Most Texas drivers, at one time or another, have been annoyed by another driver's actions while behind the wheel. However, some drivers take this annoyance to an entirely different level -- in fact, what is known as road rage -- resulting in an unsafe or even deadly situation. On a recent Monday, three vehicles collided on a road in North Houston resulting in a fatal accident, possibly due to a case of road rage.

The crash occurred when a white van traveling northbound on a service road crossed an intersection. Two other vehicles heading westbound on the crossroad ran a red light and hit the van, killing a passenger and sending three other occupants to the hospital. In addition, three people from the other two vehicles were taken to the hospital.

Since the vehicles sustained significant damage in the crash, police speculate high speeds were involved. The van apparently had the right of way, and police believe the other two vehicles could have been involved in a road rage incident. They also noted that the drivers of those vehicles appeared to be intoxicated. One of the drivers now faces an intoxication manslaughter charge and has admitted in court that he and the other driver had indeed argued earlier that evening at a club, and that when he left, the other driver followed him in his vehicle.

Unfortunately, even when a driver is obeying all the rules of the road, a driver who is not can cause a fatal accident, changing the lives of several people in an instant. In this case, an innocent man, headed to a construction site with his co-workers, leaves his family to mourn his loss due to the seemingly reckless actions of others. The victim's surviving, as well as anyone in Texas in a similar situation, have the option to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. While nothing can turn back time and erase terrible events, a successful lawsuit can help the surviving family recoup financial losses incurred from funeral costs, lost income and other documented damages.
