Woman charged in fatal hit-and-run car accident

When a driver is behind the wheel, he or she has an enormous responsibility to not only avoid driving while impaired, but also to obey all road signs. If an accident does happen, the people involved are expected to remain at the scene. While most Texas drivers already know and follow all of these rules, in a recent car accident, one woman did not follow any of them.

Woman inspecting vehicle becomes victim of fatal accident

Texas drivers who have traveled on highways or any roadway involving high speed likely understand the importance of taking particular safety measures in the event they must pull over to the side and exit the vehicle for any reason. However, sometimes no amount of attention to safety can prevent a tragedy from happening. Vehicles can veer off the road for many reasons, and occasionally, a person in the path of such a vehicle becomes the victim of a fatal accident. Such was the case when a woman was killed when she stepped outside her vehicle on a roadway in Lubbock.

Fatal accident at stoplight leaves 2 people dead

Likely, most Texas drivers, at one time or another, have found themselves having to slam on the brakes just in time to prevent a collision with a vehicle in front of them. Some people become distracted by activity in their own vehicle or something happening outside, and some drivers find themselves daydreaming. However, sometimes a speeding driver simply does not have enough time to stop when necessary and causes a fatal accident.

Unsafe lane change on Houston bridge results in fatal accident

Probably all Texas drivers can recount many times in which they've had to pass a vehicle in front of them, whether the other vehicle was moving too slowly for the passing driver or for other reasons. Sometimes, such a strategy requires a driver to pull back into the same lane, this time in front of the passed vehicle. Although most drivers make this move in a safe manner, some do not, and an unsafe move can result in a fatal accident.

Tragic wrong-way car accident claims lives of both drivers

According to authorities, wrong-way collisions in Texas and elsewhere happen most often between midnight and 3 a.m., and although this type of crash comprises only about 3% of traffic accidents, they are typically the most deadly. When two vehicles collide head-on, the drivers and passengers involved do not often survive the tremendous impact. Unfortunately, in a wrong-way car accident on the President George Bush Turnpike, both drivers lost their lives after one of the drivers reportedly traveled 11 miles in the wrong direction.
