Teens involved in fatal vehicle accident

Whether young or old, every driver and passenger believes he or she will make it safely to the intended destination. Distractions, inclement weather or other drivers can be just a few causes of a fatal vehicle accident that may prevent safe passage. Unfortunately, a recent night out turned deadly for two Texas high school students resulted in a fatal vehicle accident.

According to a report, the teenage driver went off the side of the road. The car struck a part of a driveway and flipped. A resident of the house near where the car landed ran outside when he heard the crash. He said although both girls were still alive when he got to the car, the 16-year-old passenger died by the time emergency responders arrived. The driver was sent by air transport to a medical facility, where her condition was listed as critical.

That part of the road is known for the frequency of accidents, recording at least five in the last year. Most of those accidents were due to speeding, which is what investigators believe happened in this case. The report did not indicate whether charges would be filed against the driver.

A car accident can result in a number of victims. If the fatal vehicle accident is due to negligent actions, the victims (or the families of deceased victims) may choose to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the person believed to have caused the collision. A Texas attorney can present the options available to those considering taking this course of action.
