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.

This may have been what happened on a recent Friday evening in an accident in which two people lost their lives and two others were injured. According to police, the collision occurred when a vehicle was rear-ended while it was stopped at a traffic light. Firefighters worked to extract the passengers of the car that was hit, a man and a woman who appear to have been related. They were then transported to a local hospital, but sadly, both died.

The drivers of both vehicles were also transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Although two other vehicles were also involved in the incident, nobody else was injured. According to witnesses, the driver that seems to have caused the crash was traveling at a high rate of speed just before impact. Authorities are continuing their investigation.

Unfortunately, a Texas resident can become involved in a fatal accident even when he or she is simply sitting in a vehicle that is at a standstill. Whatever the reason, apparently, a driver was traveling too quickly to stop in time to avoid a collision, and now two people are dead. Investigators may conclude that the crash happened due to negligent and/or reckless behavior on the part of the driver. Many times, in this type of situation, a victim's family will consult a personal injury lawyer regarding the possibility of pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court.
