Car accident claims lives of Texas woman and her unborn child

In most cases, in Texas and elsewhere, people who become involved in collisions are in a moving vehicle. However, a car accident can happen even when one or more of the vehicles involved is in a stationary position. Such was the case when, sadly, a woman and her unborn child were killed when her car was hit as it sat parked on the shoulder of the road.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, on a recent Sunday, a 34-year-old pregnant woman was in her car parked on the shoulder when another vehicle traveling at a high speed struck her vehicle. In turn, her car struck another car, which then struck a fourth vehicle. The pregnant woman was transported by helicopter to a hospital, but both she and her unborn child did not survive the accident.

The driver of the first vehicle has been identified as a 37-year-old man. Reportedly, he fled from the scene on foot, and police are now considering him a wanted fugitive.  Two other passengers in that car and both drivers of the third and fourth vehicles suffered injuries and were all sent to hospitals. Police have said the hit-and-run driver will face charges of manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid.

Likely, Texas residents will find this car accident particularly tragic, since the victims include a young woman and her unborn child. In addition, according to the evidence so far, it seems this woman carried no fault in this incident, as she was in her car parked on the shoulder at the time. Assuming authorities eventually locate the hit-and-run suspect, the victims' family members may consider consulting a personal injury lawyer to discuss their legal options. If successfully litigated, a wrongful death lawsuit could help cover the unexpected expenses and related monetary damages that tend to follow such situations.
