Fatal accident claims lives of 2 Texas men

Texas drivers of any type of vehicle may occasionally veer over the center line of a roadway, and this can happen for various reasons: driver fatigue or distraction, faulty vehicle mechanics or inappropriate use of drugs or alcohol. While investigation continues into a recent fatal accident in Tyler, police have released an accident report confirming that a pickup truck crossed the center line on a local roadway and crashed head-on into a charter bus. Reportedly, investigators are working with bus company officials to retrieve video footage taken from the front of the bus as they attempt to determine why this accident happened.

The accident occurred very early one morning recently. Reportedly, after the truck crossed the center line, it struck the bus, and both vehicles ended up on opposite sides of the road. The two young, male occupants of the pickup truck were pronounced dead at the scene. One man was partially ejected from the truck, and neither occupant was wearing a seat belt.

The charter bus held 32 people, and five people were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries. Officials ordered autopsies on the deceased victims of the pickup truck. A police spokesperson has stated they are waiting for preliminary autopsy and toxicology reports.

When completed, the investigation could very well conclude that this fatal accident was caused by the negligent actions of the truck driver. In all likelihood, the grieving family of the passenger will have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the deceased driver's estate. A Texas personal injury attorney can review case details and provide legal guidance.
