When a Texas resident learns that a loved one has been killed in a motor vehicle collision that could likely have been prevented, anger and frustration often accompanies grief. A recent fatal accident took place that was deemed to have been caused by a suspected intoxicated driver. To make matters worse, the man under suspicion walked away from the scene of the crash without trying to render any type of aid to the victim.
Most Texas women experience a roller coaster of emotion when navigating their ways through pregnancy, labor and childbirth. It's typically an exciting time, interrupted by brief periods of anxiety and worry. When something goes wrong leading up to or following a delivery -- such as a birth injury -- moms have a right to know who may be at fault.
Many people in Texas are probably wondering what type of text message could be so urgent that a driver couldn't wait until he or she was safely removed from traffic before sending it. For whatever reason, a pickup driver in a rural town about 75 miles away from San Antonio apparently chose to send his text message while he was still behind the wheel in moving traffic. He now likely knows what a poor decision that was as 13 people are dead, and several others injured, after he was involved in a fatal vehicle accident with a church bus.
Ever driven on a Texas highway in heavy traffic? If so, you likely encountered one or more tractor-trailers in your travels. Nothing can cause sweaty palms behind the wheel more than a barreling big rig coming so close in your rear view mirror that it looks like it might drive straight through the backseat of your car. Truckers are not immune to traffic regulations and, like all other motorists, must obey the stringent laws that are meant to help keep them and all who share the road as safe as possible.
