Another Texas motor vehicle fatality leaves many stricken

It may be six months before the results of blood tests confirm what police believe about the driver of a pickup truck involved in a recent motor vehicle fatality. The accident left him injured and took the life of another driver. Texas police suspect the 26-year-old man in the truck may have been intoxicated at the time of the accident.

Just before 6 a.m., a 39-year-old woman was driving west when her vehicle was struck by a pickup truck heading east in her lane. The head-on collision fatally injured the woman, and she was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup truck suffered numerous injuries, including two broken legs. He was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Police say they believe alcohol was a factor, but they must wait for the results of blood tests to confirm their suspicions. If the tests show the driver of the truck was impaired, he will likely be charged with intoxication manslaughter. This fatal accident has left this area reeling because it is the fourth death and 15th injury on that same stretch of highway in just 10 weeks.

The Texas families and loved ones of those who lost their lives to negligent drivers may be especially frustrated to hear of another motor vehicle fatality when their own tragedies are so fresh. Like many who suffer from the senseless loss of loves ones, they have every right to want answers to their questions and options for their sorrow. A compassionate personal injury attorney may be able to provide the consolation they seek.
