Car trouble leads to fatal accident for Texas man

Most Texas drivers, from time to time, have experienced car trouble and have had to pull over to the side of the road to investigate further. Sometimes, this happens on a busy highway where the driver is vulnerable to passing vehicles. Such situations can result in a fatal accident, which, unfortunately, is what happened recently in San Antonio.

The accident happened late one recent Wednesday evening. The 33-year-old victim lost control of his Nissan on a ramp and then collided with a concrete barrier. The man got out of his car and was assessing the damage when a box truck ran into the Nissan, which then hit and killed the car's driver and resulted in several minor injuries for other drivers who were involved in the chain reaction that ensued.

Immediately following the crash, the truck driver left his vehicle and fled from the scene. According to a police spokesperson, people who take such an action can face some serious charges when they are found, especially when a death is involved. This driver will be looking at a felony charge of failing to stop and render aid.

Accidents happen for various reasons, and they can be extremely upsetting for everyone involved. Sometimes, especially in the case of a fatal accident, the person who caused the accident reacts impulsively and inappropriately. However, people need to take responsibility for their actions no matter the reason, and in this case, a young Texas man has lost his life. When this truck driver is found, investigators may find his actions were responsible for this accident, but in addition to any charges he faces, he may also face a wrongful death civil lawsuit from the victim's family. While they cannot undo the terrible events that occurred, if the case is successfully litigated, they can recoup some of the monetary losses they have likely suffered.
