Five people’s lives have suddenly been snuffed out as a result of two car crashes that happened in the span of a little more than two hours in Texas. In addition, seven individuals have suffered injuries in these motor vehicle accidents. The car collisions that caused these deaths and injuries occurred on a recent Sunday night and early Monday morning.
According to authorities, two men passed away and three individuals suffered injuries in one crash that happened at a little past 9 p.m. One of the injured parties was a woman, who suffered critical injuries and was taken to a medical center by helicopter. Meanwhile, another woman suffered possibly serious injuries and was driven to a medical center. In addition, a child with possibly serious injuries was taken to a children’s hospital.
A three-vehicle crash ended up killing another three individuals and injuring four other individuals a little later at around 11:25 p.m. The road where the crash happened remained shut down until 5 a.m. on Monday. It was not immediately clear how serious the three injured parties’ injuries were.
Police may discover through their investigations of the Texas motor vehicle accidents that driver negligence caused the crashes. In this situation, the surviving loved ones of the deceased parties may choose to file wrongful death claims against the at-fault drivers, assuming that their deceased loved ones did not cause the accidents. Likewise, any injured parties that did not cause the crashes may opt to file personal injury claims against the parties who reportedly did. A successfully fought claim, based upon a showing of negligence, might lead to a monetary award that may help with covering hospital bills, burial costs and other accident-related expenses.
