Car accidents: 2 teens killed in Texas crash

Many parents find it joyful and nerve-wracking to watch their children grow and try new things. They often feel nervous sending their kids out on the road as teenagers because car accidents can take place at any time. Unfortunately, young people are not immune to suffering serious or fatal injuries in such events when they occur.

It was recently reported that an accident between a car and a pickup truck in Texas resulted in the deaths of two teens. Details on the incident were few, but it was mentioned that it occurred at an intersection. The driver of the pickup truck, who was reported as being a 61-year-old man, attempted to flee the scene on foot but was later apprehended by authorities. At the time of the report, he was still in custody with a $250,000 bond.

The two teens killed in the incident were reported as being 16 and 18 years old. It was noted that both victims were wearing their seat belts at the time of the incident. Three other people who were in the same car as the victims who died were transported to the hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Because this incident resulted in multiple deaths and injuries, it is possible for multiple civil legal claims to result. The families of the accident victims and the surviving injured parties may have reason to consider filing wrongful death and personal injury claims, as applicable. Car accidents can commonly lead to tremendous difficulties, and seeking compensation for damages allowed under Texas state law may prove useful in addressing those hardships.
