The fun and celebrations of the holiday season came to an abrupt halt for one family on a recent Tuesday night. A devastating collision, the second of fatal accidents along the same stretch of Texas roads in the past three years, took several lives. Relatives who had been anticipating a joyful Christmas found themselves in a state of mourning instead.
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 driver has been blamed for a deadly accident after striking and killing another motorist. Texas authorities believe that the person who allegedly caused the apparent wrongful death accident was under the influence. Another person who was involved in the accident suffered critical injuries.
In a recent tragedy in the Texas Panhandle, four lives were lost in a car accident. Unfortunately, the actions of negligent drivers can cause wrongful death crashes, and this case does not appear to be an exception. One of the victims was only 2 years old and the deadly event occurred on a recent Tuesday night.
A motor vehicle accident occurred in Texas earlier this week which resulted in a fatality.
A fatal pedestrian accident that occurred recently in Palestine, Texas, which is in between Houston and Dallas, has left police investigating who was at fault. According to police, the man was walking down a street when he was struck and killed by a pickup truck.
