Young Texas mother of baby dies in car accident

Most drivers are well aware of the dangers of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Unfortunately, some Texas residents still make questionable choices before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle, and sadly, sometimes such a choice leads to a car accident resulting in a fatality. For a Texas family, unfortunately, this scenario became their reality.

The accident happened on a recent Sunday evening when a 23-year-old mother was returning from visiting relatives with her mother and 1-year-old son. Reportedly, a 19-year-old driver of a truck crossed several lanes of traffic before crashing into the woman's SUV. The woman's mother and baby survived the crash, but the young woman died at the scene.

According to reports, the male driver who is accused of causing the accident had 12 drinks at a local bar before getting into his vehicle. Four bartenders as well as a manager at the establishment were arrested for allegedly serving alcohol to the underage man. The driver has been charged with intoxication manslaughter and has appeared in court; he has since been released on bail.

A baby is now left without a mother, possibly due to the poor judgement of this driver, as well as the people allegedly responsible for serving him alcohol. Often, in addition to the emotional impact of such a sudden loss due to a car accident, those left behind will struggle to meet financial obligations. Families such as this one have the option of filing a lawsuit in a Texas civil court that if successfully litigated, can help with unexpected expenses. A personal injury lawyer can review the case details and assess the options for legal recourse.
