A recent motor vehicle collision occurred in a town near Houston. The Texas car accident resulted in two persons having to be airlifted to an area hospital for treatment of their injuries. The driver of the vehicle thought to be at-fault was issued a traffic ticket in the aftermath of the crash.
A recent state senate bill was passed that affected a device that some Texas cities have been using to catch motorists who speed at intersections. Those who support the devices claim that since their implementation, the number of car accidents at red lights has been greatly reduced. Statistics have shown that the red-light cameras have had a positive effect on driving safety in many cities across the state.
A recent tragedy occurred in Texas that left one person dead and another facing criminal charges. The apparent wrongful death accident took place near midnight on a recent Thursday. Galveston police responded to the call in the 4100 block of Seawall Boulevard.
Tragic accidents can happen at any time. Unfortunately, a family that was vacationing in Texas never made it home after being involved in a car accident. Reports indicate that a father and his son died in the accident, leaving the man's wife potentially able to file a wrongful death claim against the negligent driver who is believed to have caused the accident.
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.
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.
Car accidents are typically the result of careless driving and negligence. Sometimes, car accidents are caused because of the loss of brakes or some other vehicle malfunction. This is true for one case in which a Texas man was sentenced for the wrongful death of a 54-year-old woman.
Drivers who are cautious while on the road are less likely to experience a crash. This caution often allows them to avoid potential obstructions on the road. However, there are some things which cannot be controlled, such as other motorists' actions. One woman in Texas realized this after a car behind her failed to stop at a red light, causing a car accident.
Victim's family members are outraged because of a sentence that was handed down recently to the owner of a bus company. The Texas bus company owner was charged following a car accident that resulted in what could clearly be characterized as the wrongful death of 17 passengers. After a plea agreement, a federal judge ordered a sentence of three years of probation.
