A car crash in Coleman, Texas, has sadly claimed two men’s lives. The unfortunate incident, which involved three automobiles, took place on a recent Saturday. These types of crashes may occur as a result of a driver’s negligence, in which case the driver who allegedly caused the collision may be held responsible for any injuries or deaths resulting from it.
Events leading up to the accident
The recent tragic collision took place along United States Highway 84. According to police, a 40-year-old man and a 42-year-old man were driving separate vehicles on the highway, going south. All of a sudden, a 72-year-old woman reportedly breached the road’s center stripe.
Police reported that the woman ended up crashing into both men’s vehicles head-on. The woman was injured in the crash and was therefore taken to a medical center, where her condition was deemed stable. However, the two male drivers passed away in the wreck.
Legal recourse may be possible following the crash
The family members of the two men who died in accident may choose to file wrongful death claims against the woman who allegedly caused the crash, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages sustained in the wreck. Liability needs to be established, based upon a showing of negligence, before a judge will decide their claims for damages. If the men’s families are successful in their claims, they may be awarded monetary damages to cover the men’s burial costs and other losses associated with the accident. For instance, damages may help to cover the loss of support for the men’s surviving dependents in the years ahead.
