People who drive drunk pose a dangerous risk to others who share the roadways, along with posing a risk to their passengers and themselves. This is especially true in the cases of fatal accidents, such as one in which a Texas man was charged after being suspected of drunk driving. However, the charges against him were dropped after it was determined that he is incompetent and is likely to remain so.
A man was killed in a recent accident that occurred in the Houston area. He was a victim in an apparent drunk driving accident, and, according to Texas police, the other driver left the scene. A woman, who saw the crash, comforted the victim as he was dying.
When drivers do not pay attention, it can be dangerous and deadly for others who share the roadways. A multi-vehicle accident has occurred on a highway, killing three people and leaving one injured. The car accident ensued when one of the drivers allegedly ran a stop sign on a Texas highway.
Being on a motorcycle can be risky, especially since motorcyclists are faced with the same dangers as other motorists, in addition to motorcycle-specific dangers. The same dangers faced by all those on the roadways include dangers presented by distracted drivers and those who are otherwise negligent. The difference is that when Texas motorcyclists are involved in collisions, they often suffer injuries that are more serious than ones that someone in a car would suffer in a similar accident. This is demonstrated clearly in a case in which a motorcyclist was severely injured after being in an auto accident.
