Possible reckless driving results in fatal car accident

When a person gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, he or she takes on a great responsibility. To ensure the safety of all vehicle occupants, as well as other vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles on or near the road, a driver must obey the rules of the road and fully concentrate on the task at hand. Most drivers, most of the time, do so. Occasionally, however, a driver will exhibit unsafe driving habits, sometimes resulting in a car accident. Two men recently suffered the consequences of such a situation on a Texas highway.

The accident happened in San Antonio early one recent Friday evening when the young male driver veered off the highway and then apparently tried to correct the error by getting back on. After flipping over many times and ejecting the male passenger, the SUV landed on its side. The driver was also partially ejected.

When neighbors heard the commotion, they ran to the scene and rolled the vehicle to release the driver pinned underneath. Unfortunately, the 23-year-old driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger was found nearby in critical condition and was transported to a local medical center where he underwent surgery. An investigation is ongoing, but police suspect reckless driving was involved.

Sadly, a momentary lapse in judgment can result in serious consequences. In this case, one man lost his life and another suffered serious injury, possibly due to reckless behavior by the driver. This car accident not only cost one family their loved one, but also cost the survivor and his family in many ways, monetary and otherwise. Victims who have experienced similar situations in which a negligent driver appears to be at fault for their harm have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit in civil court. If successfully litigated, monetary relief could be awarded for many of the unexpected expenses along with other damages applicable under Texas law.
