Alleged negligent driver kills mother of 2 on first school day

A school community of an elementary school in Texas was rocked on the first school day when a fatal accident occurred in the parking lot. A police chief in El Paso says an investigation into the crash is underway. Although he noted that the man who caused the accident was at fault, no charges were immediately filed against the alleged negligent driver.

According to authorities, a 33-year-old mother and her two children, along with another child, were in the school's parking lot after the dismissal of classes. Reportedly, a 58-year-old driver first smashed into another vehicle, and he did not stop but proceeded ahead. He struck the three children, and as witnesses approached the scene to help, the driver allegedly put his car in drive and then struck the mother.

The three children, a 6-year-old girl, and two boys, ages 7 and 10, were rushed to a hospital. Reportedly, all three were in serious condition. Although they are expected to recover, the mother did not survive the accident.

Injured victims of a car accident might have grounds to pursue financial relief through the Texas civil justice system if a negligent driver caused their injuries. Similarly, the surviving family members of a deceased accident victim can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Proving negligence is essential in any civil suit, and that might be challenging. However, an experienced personal injury attorney can provide the necessary support and guidance throughout the ensuing legal proceedings. If such claims are successfully navigated, the court might enter monetary judgments to cover economic and noneconomic damages.
