A man’s life has been cut short in a tragic motor vehicle collision reportedly caused by speeding in Harris County. The car collision took place on a recent Monday night. Sometimes, these types of accidents happen due to negligent driving, in which case the reportedly at-fault party may be held liable for any injuries or deaths resulting from the crash.
Events leading up to the accident
The tragic collision in Texas took place at about 9:30 p.m. According to police, three teenagers were in a speeding car headed southbound along a road. All of a sudden, their car allegedly struck an automobile that was exiting the parking lot of a nearby McDonald’s restaurant.
Police said the collision’s impact drove the second car across three traffic lanes. The second car reportedly ended up in the road’s northbound lanes, at which point a third car hit it. The driver of the second car was pronounced deceased at the crash scene. Meanwhile, the three teenagers in the first car suffered injuries and were therefore transported to a medical center for treatment. Authorities continued to investigate the crash.

The surviving loved ones of the man who died in the Texas collision may choose to file a wrongful death claim against the driver of the allegedly speeding vehicle, seeking the reimbursement of damages. Likewise, personal injury claims may be filed against this driver on behalf of the passengers of the reportedly speeding vehicle. Successfully fought claims might result in monetary damages to cover the victims’ hospital bills, funeral costs and other losses associated with the accident.
