2 music teachers killed in Texas crash

A recent crash in the Fort Worth, Texas area disrupted the wedding plans of two music teachers who lost their lives as a result of the accident. Authorities deemed the cause to be driver fatigue. 

The 28-year-old driver and his 26-year-old fiancee were both musicians who had graduated from the same university, involved themselves in their church's choirs and taught music in the public schools. The driver of the vehicle had been the choral director and accompanist at Granbury High School, while his fiancee taught music at a local elementary school. They were well known in the community of Granbury where they lived and worked, and expressions of shock and grief on social media at the news of their deaths indicate that community members held the couple in high esteem. 

The two were reportedly traveling home from a party in Stephenville shortly after midnight on Sunday when the accident occurred. While traveling on Interstate 20, the driver lost control of the vehicle due to fatigue, causing the vehicle to drift into the center median where it went off an embankment and into a ravine according to a preliminary investigation. Authorities pronounced the couple dead at the scene after a law enforcement officer discovered the crash approximately eight hours later while looking for loose livestock along I-20.

Car accidents can have many contributing factors: negligence or recklessness, alcohol or drug use, distraction or fatigue. Therefore, victims injured in a car accident may find it helpful to engage the services of an attorney.
