2 Texas teenage girls die in tragic car accident

Many Texas families enjoy spending time together, and often, family activities involve travelling a considerable distance. However, although family time for most is a joyful event and an opportunity to strengthen relationships, sometimes a car accident can happen. Sadly, such was the case in a fatal accident in which two teenage sisters died and other members of their family were injured.

The crash happened on a recent Saturday night. The two sisters were traveling in a vehicle along with their younger sister, their father and his girlfriend. A 61-year-old man collided with the family's sedan on an interstate frontage road. Reportedly, he tried to flee the accident scene, but police caught him.

Two of the sisters, one 16 years old and one 18, were killed in the crash. The other occupants all sustained non-life threatening injuries and were transported to a local hospital. According to police, all of the victims were wearing seatbelts at the time of the collision. Authorities are unsure yet if the driver of the other vehicle was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and a toxicology report is pending.

This driver is now in jail facing multiple charges. Two young girls lost their lives in an instant, and sadly, a family is left to not only grieve their loss but also to live with the knowledge that this tragedy may have been prevented. If investigation results indicate the car accident did indeed happen as a result of the driver's negligent behaviour, the surviving family has the right to pursue the matter in Texas civil court. An experienced personal injury lawyer can consult with them to determine if a wrongful death lawsuit is a viable option.
