A 23-year-old dies after friend swerves car into oncoming traffic

An accident that occurred in the northern portion of Harris County on Saturday, May 27, 2017, claimed the life of a 23-year-old Houston native. Two others, who were riding in the same white Chevrolet Impala as the decedent, were injured in the 8:45 p.m. car crash as well.

The driver of the Impala had been driving northbound along Lockwood, near its intersection with Sam Houston Parkway, when its tires veered off the roadway and into a crevasse that ran along the shoulder. Although the driver was successful in attempting to return his vehicle to the roadway, he overcompensated in doing so. This resulted in him swerving his car into one of the oncoming traffic lanes where the Impala struck a Chevrolet Trailblazer.

The forceful, head-on impact resulted in the Impala flipping over. The driver and one of his passengers were transported to the hospital in critical condition. The second passenger in the truck is believed to have died instantly from the injuries he suffered in the crash.

As for the driver of the Trailblazer SUV that was struck, he refused treatment. His daughter was transported to the hospital in stable condition.

The decedent had been visiting his native Houston for the extended Memorial Day weekend at the time the fatal accident occurred. Prior to that, he had most recently been residing in San Marcos, where he was receiving receiving both educational and vocational training with Job Corps.

In instances like these, where driver error is believed to have resulted in another's death, it may be possible for family members to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person seen as being responsible for contributing to their death. A Houston car accident attorney can advise you as to strengths and weaknesses of your case.
