Beloved Texas teacher dies in fatal car accident

When a person dies in a tragic accident, it often affects people in very wide circles. In fact, people seldom realize how many lives they touch, even when they personally encounter thousands in their lifetime. One Texas woman is being mourned after a motor vehicle accident took her life. In her family, her church and her community, the woman was loved and admired.

As a kindergarten teacher for many years, the victim shared her optimism with her students. When she retired, she continued to volunteer, touching even more lives with her generosity. Members of her church experienced her compassion and her devotion to God, her two children and her grandchildren. These attributes became a memory after a terrible accident on a recent morning around 8 a.m.

The woman was driving north on a Texas highway when she passed through an intersection. A car driven by a teenage student crossed the intersection into her path and collided head-on with her car. The woman died after being airlifted to the hospital. The driver and his three juvenile passengers were also airlifted with critical to serious injuries.

The driver claims he did not see the woman's car because of another car blocking his path. However, it is always the responsibility of a driver to ensure the road is clear before entering an intersection. Families of victims who die when other drivers are negligent may benefit by consulting an attorney to discuss the option of seeking justice through the Texas civil courts. Although it will never replace the person, a successful wrongful death claim may bring compensation that a family needs for damages that these tragedies engender.
