Charges filed in fatal Texas crash

For the families left behind when a car crash claims the life of a loved one, the period spent waiting for the investigation to be completed can seem to last a lifetime.

In addition, many families choose to wait for the conclusion of an accident investigation and any subsequent criminal trials before moving forward with a wrongful death suit. The recent announcement that two men have been indicted in relation to an accident that occurred in March 2012 may come as a relief to the family of a man killed in the incident.
