Tragic Texas car accident results in death of mother and son

Any Texas resident who has operated a motor vehicle, or even those who have not, understands the need to behave responsibly both prior to and during the drive. They understand that not doing so can lead to serious consequences, and perhaps even a fatality. Although a car accident can happen for many different reasons, sometimes drivers forget the seriousness of their responsibility, and tragedy results simply due to reckless driver behaviour. This seems to be what happened when an SUV and a pickup truck collided, killing a mother and her child.

The crash occurred late on a recent Wednesday evening. The SUV was making a left-hand turn when it was struck by a pickup truck entering the intersection. According to police, the pickup truck was speeding at the time. The impact sent the SUV crashing into a steel light pole.

Two passengers in the SUV, a 35-year-old woman and her 6-year-old son, lost their lives in the crash. The driver of the SUV and the pickup driver both suffered critical injuries. The SUV driver remains in the hospital. Authorities report that the pickup driver will be charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter and two counts of intoxication assault.

Sadly, it seems some drivers still ignore the ubiquitous messages touting the dangers of driving drunk. As a result, people still suffer through tragedies such as this one. The driver responsible for this car accident now faces serious charges, but more importantly, two people are dead and one person critically injured because of his reckless behavior. The victims' families are undoubtedly suffering through grief but are also likely encountering many unexpected expenses. They may wish to consult with a Texas personal injury attorney to discuss options for legal recourse.
