Young teen killed in tragic car accident

Most Texas drivers realize the importance of checking both ways when approaching an intersection, just in case another driver does not stop when necessary. However, we are all human and sometimes can become distracted or simply forget what we should be doing, so not everyone practices this safety measure every single time. Occasionally, a car accident is the unfortunate result. This appears to be what happened on a recent Saturday morning.

The accident happened when a tractor-trailer hit a car broadside at an intersection in Lewisville, killing a 13-year-old girl in the back seat of the car. The 37-year-old driver and her 9-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter were taken to the hospital. Although the mother's condition was unknown as of the following day, the children are reportedly in critical condition. The tractor-trailer driver was unharmed.

Police are still investigating the accident. However, after both drivers voluntarily provided blood samples, the authorities do not believe alcohol is a factor. Investigators are now trying to determine which driver ran a red light at the intersection.

Many people can likely think of a time when they did not behave appropriately when behind the wheel of a vehicle, perhaps due to fatigue, distraction or simply poor judgment in the moment. Thankfully, most often these incidents end with, at most, a close call, but sometimes the unthinkable happens: a car accident causing a fatality. In this case, a young girl has lost her life, possibly due to a negligent driver, and her family must be devastated. If negligence is suspected to be the cause of this accident, they may consider pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit in a Texas civil court.
