Authorities in Huntsville and at Sam Houston State University say they continue to investigate a recent fatal car wreck. Amid that assurance, however, there seems to be a certain air of mystery about exactly what might have happened.
In such circumstances, survivors and the loved ones of those killed might do well to engage an experienced attorney in order to track the investigation and ensure that their rights are protected.
What is known is that three SHSU students are confirmed dead as a result of what reportedly was a one-vehicle rollover accident early last Saturday.
Officials identify the victims as two males and a female, ages 20, 22 and 19. A fourth student, age 23, reportedly suffered critical injuries. But at last word, he was said to be stable and recovering.
Apparently preferring to wait until the official investigation is over, officials have not released much information. What has been repported is that the four victims were driving in a Chevrolet sedan at about 4:50 in the morning on Saturday. Officials say they believe the vehicle was speeding and that the driver lost control. It jumped a curb, struck a light pole and some railings before coming to rest upside down. An apparent photo of the scene shows a vehicle, wheels up, leaning against a building.
Family members tell KTRK-TV that the female victim was driving the car at the time of the crash.
In the wake of the deadly event, the SHSU student body is said to be in a state of mourning, as are the families of all the victims, we are sure.
