Arrests made in aftermath of fatal accident in Texas

A recent Texas tragedy resulted in the loss of life. The preliminary investigations in the fatal accident suggest suspicion of intoxicated driving. The accident involved two vehicles and the occupants in one vehicle were both college students.

The car involved in the recent accident was a Chevrolet Tahoe in which two young men were traveling. Reports indicate that the driver crashed into another vehicle, driven by a 46-year-old female. The vehicle that was struck flipped over upon impact. Sadly, the driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision.

The 22-year-old student who was behind the wheel of the Tahoe was arrested at the scene for suspected intoxication manslaughter. The 23-year-old passenger in the same vehicle was also arrested under suspicion of public intoxication. One of the men reportedly received medical care for injuries at the scene before being placed in handcuffs by police.

When a Texas collision results in the injury of a person or persons due to the negligent or wrongful actions of another driver, it is lawful to file a personal injury claim in a civil court. When a fatal accident has occurred, surviving family members of the victim may file a claim on the decedent's behalf. The untimely death of a loved one can cause significant financial crisis, in addition to the emotional pain and grief suffered in the loss. Compensation awarded in a successfully litigated claim can possibly help alleviate some of the financial burdens incurred by the surviving family members in the aftermath of an accident.
