Fiery fatal accident claims both drivers' lives

Most drivers realize that with the privilege of holding a driver's licence comes great responsibility to take necessary safety measures while driving. Unfortunately, due to a multitude of variables any driver may encounter on the road, no amount of careful thought can prevent a fatal accident from happening sometimes. This may have been what happened when two people died in a fiery crash on a Texas road.

The accident happened very early on a recent Sunday morning when a the driver of a pickup truck veered into the lane of an oncoming car, causing a head-on collision. The car landed in a nearby ditch where it burst into flames, killing the driver. According to a witness, bystanders rushed to help the woman in the burning car, but they could not get her out due to the flames and the condition of the vehicle.

The driver of the pickup also died in the crash. Bystanders were able to extract the truck's passenger, and he was later taken to hospital. Authorities found alcohol in the truck, but they could not yet confirm if impaired driving was a factor in the accident. They are continuing their investigation into the cause.

Unfortunately, two people lost their lives in this fatal accident, possibly due to negligent behavior on the part of the pickup driver. When the investigation is complete, the authorities may conclude that the pickup driver's actions did indeed cause the crash, whether due to drunk driving or some other reason. If this is the case, the other driver's family may wish to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the pickup driver's estate. A knowledgeable Texas personal injury attorney can review individual case details and determine if such an action is a viable option.
