3 young people killed in fatal accident in San Angelo

Sometimes an evening that begins as a fun night out with friends suddenly ends tragically. Sometimes this happens after a few drinks are consumed, leaving a person feeling invincible. This may have been the case when four young people in San Angelo were involved in a fatal accident.

The Texas accident happened just before midnight on a recent Tuesday evening. According to San Angelo police, the vehicle was traveling southbound on a local road when the driver lost control. The car hit a fiberglass light pole and flipped several times on its way down a nearby embankment.

Police found the 23-year-old driver and an 18-year-old back seat passenger dead at the scene. A 21-year-old woman in the backseat and the 22-year-old front seat passenger were transported to a nearby medical center. While the man in the front seat was treated and released from the hospital, the woman succumbed to her injuries the following morning. Police say that the driver and front seat passenger were both wearing seat belts, but the two in the back were not, causing them to be ejected from the vehicle. The investigation is ongoing, but police believe alcohol and speed were factors in the crash.

The families of the deceased must be enduring the worst days of their lives. Losing any loved one is difficult enough, but to lose a young person just beginning his or her life, due to the seemingly reckless actions of another, is surely especially heart-wrenching. Nothing can reverse time and prevent this horrific fatal accident. However, if the investigation reveals negligence on the part of the driver, these families, and anyone in Texas involved in a similar situation, have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court. A successfully litigated case could provide some monetary relief to grieving survivors.
