Texas truck accident claims 2 vibrant lives

Smiles, laughter, generosity and positive energy are some of the things that family members may miss when a loved one dies. Parents may accidentally check social media for posts from their children even after their children are gone from them. The heartbreak of losing a loved one is something that may linger for the rest of one's life. Countless people are feeling that grief following a fatal truck accident on a Texas highway.

A 23-year-old woman agreed to accompany a friend on a road trip. Her friend, who was a soldier in the U.S. Army and worked as a gun instructor, wanted to attend a shooting tournament in another state. The two were returning home when the weather turned bad. Because visibility was poor on the highway, the woman's friend decided to pull off the road behind other vehicles that were waiting out the storm.

However, the driver of an 18-wheeler failed to see the cars stopped on the side of the highway and crashed into the back of the friends' car. The vehicle was crushed into the back of the pickup truck parked in front of it, and the car burst into flames. Both occupants died at the scene.

Driving a truck in the best conditions requires diligence and care, but when weather conditions are poor, extra precaution is necessary. The emotional trauma of losing a loved one cannot be measured in dollars and cents. However, sometimes the only way to hold someone responsible for negligent acts is to place a monetary value on the loss. The assistance and advice of a Texas personal injury attorney can help grieving loved ones weigh their options.
