Some people just do not consider how their actions will affect not just themselves, but others as well. When people choose to be reckless while driving, it can end at great personal cost, perhaps including a fatal accident or one with serious injuries to others. One example is a recent accident in which an 18-year-old Texas driver killed one person as he was trying to evade police.
Though semi-trucks are a vital part of our modern economy, they also pose certain risks. Since they are so much larger and heavier than a basic passenger vehicle, a car involved in a crash with one will likely sustain severe damage. This lesson was apparent in a recent truck accident on a Texas highway that took two lives and left one more with significant injuries.
The loss of life from a senseless tragedy on Texas roadways not only brings grief, but anger as well. It is horrific to lose a loved one in a fatal accident and even more so when several family members are killed in the same tragedy. Two, and possibly three, family members died in a recent nighttime fatal accident.
While most Texas residents have numerous thoughts during the hours of the day, they should only be focusing on safety while they are driving. Whether carrying passengers or driving alone, a driver's attention should be on the surrounding traffic. Any distractions from the concentration required for driving could lead to a deadly crash. Two children were killed when a bus driver's inattentiveness caused a fatal accident.
