Houston accident leaves two dead at scene and one survivor

An off-duty police officer placed a 911 call after witnessing a crash in South Houston on a recent Sunday. The accident took place in the wee hours of the morning. A spokesman from the city's police department stated that the vehicle was speeding in the 12600 block of State Highway 288.

It was 4 a.m. when the off-duty officer witnessed the driver of a pickup truck lose control of his vehicle and veer off the road. After crossing through a field and striking a light pole, the truck rolled over and came to a halt. The witness called 911 for emergency assistance and helped the male passenger in the front seat exit the vehicle.

First responders declared two other men, the driver, and a back-seat passenger, dead at the scene. The lone survivor was transported to a local Houston hospital. His condition has been reported as "stable." Reports also indicate that the injured man was the only passenger wearing proper restraint in the truck. Those who died were not wearing their seat belts.

Texas law allows a person, injured in a motor vehicle accident due to the negligence or reckless driving of another, to file a personal injury claim in a court of law. Financial burdens caused by mounting medical bills, loss of employment income and other damages may be alleviated if the claim is successful. Consulting a professional legal team with experience in personal injury claims can be of benefit to someone who is in the process of seeking available options and making decisions regarding the legal aspects of their recovery process.
