Car accidents caused by drunk drivers are often fatal

Even a minor car crash can be a stressful event for those involved. But when small car accidents lead into something more, catastrophic results can occur. A recent incident with an alleged drunk driver in Texas led to the death of one man and placed a woman in critical condition.

A 57-year-old male driver of a truck had collided with a car on W. W. White Road in San Antonio, according to witnesses and police. He subsequently pulled his truck to the middle lane because of a damaged tire. A woman in the car that was struck reported that they waited for the police to arrive for nearly an hour. While the driver of the truck and his passenger were changing the tire, a sport utility vehicle struck them.

The driver of the truck died at the scene from the impact of the crash. The female passenger was transported to a nearby hospital with serious injuries. Witnesses state that the woman had indicated she could not feel her legs after the accident. Police report that the driver of the SUV was arrested and charged with manslaughter and intoxication.

Losing a loved one or seeing a loved one severely injured in car accidents is devastating to family members. When the death or injury has occurred because of someone's negligent behavior, families in similar situations often choose to pursue wrongful death or personal injury litigation. A successful claim in a wrongful death or personal injury case can help ease the burden of exorbitant funeral expenses or medical costs. An experienced Texas attorney can help achieve a positive outcome for those seeking compensation for their loss.
