Victims of a collision are not limited to those in the vehicles. Those killed in a fatal accident have family members and friends who suffer greatly in the loss of their loved one. Three pickup trucks were involved in a recent fatal accident on a U.S. highway that runs through Texas.
According to a police report on the collision, a Ford F-350 driven by a 51-year-old man was moving at an excessive speed down the highway when it hit another pickup truck. The impact caused the second pickup to run off the road. The Ford did not stop but resumed its forward path and hit a third pickup, causing it to also leave the road. The Ford finally came to a stop, with the driver uninjured.
The other two drivers were taken to a nearby medical facility, where the driver of the second truck died from his injuries. Police have not yet issued any charges against the driver of the Ford. They would like to continue their investigation before making any final conclusions.
When a life is lost in a fatal accident, there is heartbreak, there is confusion and there is anger. There is a driving need to make sure the responsible party is held accountable for the pain that has been caused. Although that person may be sentenced to jail time and high fines, there is a possibility he or she may be further penalized by a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of the deceased. Unfortunately, this happens all too often, and there are many experienced attorneys in Texas who will be able to assist any potential clients who may need their services.
