Fatal accident claims 2 lives and injuries 2 other people

Driving requires a high level of concentration and devotion to the task at hand. A driver that is distracted for even a few seconds can cause a tragic situation ending in serious injury or even death. Although the cause has not yet been determined, and other factors may have been involved, a recent fatal accident on a Texas road may have been a result of driver distraction.

The accident occurred on a Monday afternoon. The Texas Department of Public Safety reported that a northbound vehicle crossed into the southbound lane. The driver then hit another vehicle head-on.

The 55-year-old female driver of the first vehicle was pronounced dead at the accident scene, and one of her passengers, a 29-year-old man, was transported to a local hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries. The driver of the vehicle that was hit, a 50-year-old man, suffered injuries, and was taken to a different hospital nearby. He is reportedly in stable condition. Another passenger in the first vehicle was also taken to hospital in critical condition. According to investigators, all people involved were wearing their seat belts.

The investigation into this fatal accident is ongoing. Various factors can cause a head-on collision, but the investigation may reveal negligence on the part of the driver of the first vehicle. If this is the case, although sadly the driver died in the crash, Texas law allows the surviving victims the option to pursue a civil lawsuit against the woman's estate. An experienced Texas personal injury attorney can review the case details and discuss options for legal recourse.
