A teenager’s life has sadly been lost due to a tragic car crash in Anderson County. In addition, two other individuals have suffered injuries in the collision. The accident took place on a recent Sunday evening.
Events leading up to the crash
The unfortunate incident occurred prior to 7 p.m. According to authorities, a 38-year-old man was driving a car along FM 315. The man then reportedly proceeded to navigate a curve but was driving too quickly at the time.
Police reported that the man’s car struck a mailbox, and after he overcorrected, his car collided with a tree. Both the man and a 14-year-old girl survived the crash and were transported to medical facilities, where their injuries were deemed incapacitating. However, a 15-year-old boy was pronounced deceased at the crash scene. Authorities continued to investigate the cause of the collision.
Seeking help in the aftermath of these tragedies
The surviving loved ones of the teenage boy who died in the Texas crash may choose to file a wrongful death claim against the man who reportedly caused the crash due to speeding. Likewise, a personal injury claim may be filed on behalf of the teenage girl who was injured in the crash, seeking the reimbursement of financial damages sustained in the crash. If liability is established in court, based upon a showing of negligence, a judge will decide these claims for damages. Damage awards in successfully fought claims might help with covering medical costs, burial expenses and other losses tied to the fatal accident.
