Fatal accident in Texas claims 2 lives, injures several

A multi-vehicle crash that occurred on March 6 shut down Highway 380 in Texas for over six hours. The fatal accident killed two people and injured several others. Preliminary information indicates that troopers responded to the scene of the crash at around 2:16 p.m. that Monday afternoon to offer assistance and begin their investigation.

The Texas Department of Public Safety has released information stating that a westbound white SUV driven by a 17-year-old female sideswiped a pickup truck, also traveling west. This caused the pickup to cross into the eastbound lanes, where it collided head-on with another vehicle, driven by an 87-year-old man. His vehicle was then struck by a tanker, which subsequently rolled onto its side.

The elderly man died at the scene. His 60-year-old daughter, who was a passenger, was taken via ambulance to a local medical center, where she later succumbed to her injuries as well. The other two passengers of that vehicle suffered serious but apparently injuries not considered life-threatening. The drivers and passengers of all other vehicles, including the tanker truck, the pickup and the SUV, were all apparently injured to varying degrees of severity, but all of the injuries were described as not life-threatening.

The accident is still under investigation, and thus far the reason the SUV traveled from the right lane into the left is undetermined. However, if fault or negligence is apparent on the part of the SUV driver, she may be facing a number of lawsuits. The family of the two victims who were killed in the fatal accident have every right to look into their grounds for a wrongful death suit. Additionally, all those who were injured in the crash have the right to contact an attorney to explore options for personal injury claims.
