Texas car accident claims 2 lives

Texas has many stretches of road that many would consider dangerous. Based on the number of car accidents and injuries, drivers may dread traveling on certain highways that are known for their hazardous conditions. Chief among those hazards may be reckless drivers who allow things both inside and outside the vehicle to distract them from the task of operating it safely. Two Texas families are now in mourning following a recent tragic accident.

The accident occurred just before 8 a.m. when a 56-year-old woman attempted to make a left turn. Her vehicle was stopped in the westbound lane, and she waited to turn while traffic passed. The driver of a pickup truck failed to notice the car stopped in his lane, and his vehicle collided with hers. The impact of the collision sent the woman's car off the road and the pickup truck into opposing traffic where it struck a compact SUV.

The driver of the SUV, a 52-year-old woman, died at the scene from her injuries. Emergency responders transported the driver of the first car to a nearby medical facility, but she did not survive her injuries. Reports say the driver of the pickup truck suffered minor injuries and was treated at a local medical center and released.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the road where the accident occurred has no center lane for those making left turns. DPS says car accidents with left turning vehicles are common in the area. This may come into consideration if the families of the victims decide to file civil actions. With the help of an attorney, many victims and their families have successfully sought compensation through personal injury claims.
