Texas family collides with wrong-way driver in fatal accident

When a driver travels the wrong way on a Texas road, he or she can risk a fatal accident and the safety of those around. The pain and anguish that a father may experience after the loss of his children and injury of his wife in a fatal accident can be overwhelming. A young woman was recently taken into police custody for her involvement in such an accident that killed two and injured multiple people.

The collision occurred on a local roadway when the young woman made the decision to drive her car on the wrong side of the road. As she continued in the incorrect direction, she collided with an oncoming van. The van was driven by a man who was traveling with his wife and their two children.

When the man driving the van noticed the approaching car, he attempted to maneuver around the vehicle coming directly at them, but he was not able to swerve out of the way in time. Both the man and woman in the van were transported to a nearby medical facility for trauma care. Their two children tragically lost their lives as a result of the impact.

The young woman who was headed the wrong way on the road and her passenger were also treated for minor injuries incurred in the crash. The driver was charged for intoxication manslaughter for both of the children who lost their lives. The father was able to leave the hospital after the fatal accident, though his wife remains in critical condition. A Texas family that has suffered catastrophic damages from the actions of another driver may seek restitution for medical and funeral costs as well as pain and suffering.
