Car accidents: 1 woman dead in Texas

A woman who was involved in a three-car crash in Houston has died, according to local sources. Police in the Texas city confirmed the accident that claimed the life of the unknown woman, who has not been publicly identified pending notification of next of kin. Police have not determined the cause of the crash, but experience with similar car accidents led to the dispatch of a DWI task force to determine whether any of the drivers involved were intoxicated. 

According to the report, the victim was a passenger in an eastbound vehicle on Sam Houston Parkway around 9:30 p.m. on May 27. A northbound vehicle struck the other car in an intersection, with a third car striking the first as well. The occupants in the first two cars were taken to local hospitals for treatment. Their conditions are not known, but police confirmed neither driver appeared to be in life-threatening condition. 

New study calls summer months the "100 Deadliest Days" for car accidents involving teenagers

A new study by AAA found that teen drivers are at the highest risk of being involved in a crash between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has dubbed this time frame the "100 Deadliest Days," stating that in the last five years 3,500 people died in car accidents involving teen drivers in summer months.

Car accidents: Crash in Texas kills 1, injures others

A serious wreck in Gray County left one teenager dead and another in critical condition, as well as other injuries and fatalities, according to local sources. Texas authorities confirmed the crash that occurred in the early morning of May 6 near McLean. As with many car accidents of this type, this tragic crash is still under investigation and no charges have been filed. 

According to the report, the driver of a semitrailer was headed eastbound on Interstate 40 when he says he encountered a vehicle with a single headlight coming from the opposite direction in the same lane. The driver said he drove his vehicle onto the shoulder to avoid the vehicle. The oncoming car was reportedly driven by an 18-year-old male. 

Motor vehicle accidents: Injuries can result in major life change

Crashes involving injuries occur in Texas every day. It is often difficult to understand the full impact motor vehicle accidents may have on the lives of victims and their families. Unfortunately, one woman learned how much life could change following a tragic accident.  She was involved in a drunk driving accident almost 20 years ago. Sadly, her name is in the news again due to her recent death following a cancer diagnosis.

She was the passenger in a vehicle with two friends leaving a party years ago when their vehicle was struck head-on by another vehicle. The other driver was later determined to have been intoxicated. As a result of the crash, the vehicle that was struck burst into flames. Sadly, the other occupants of the vehicle in which she was a passenger did not survive the crash.

Motor vehicle accidents can have catastrophic results

Spring has arrived and with it an increase in many school activities in Texas. These include sports events, proms, marching band and drill team competitions. Many of these events involve travel, and many parents pitch in to provide transportation to children and their friends to participate in these events. Sadly, however, tragic motor vehicle accidents sometimes occur.

A woman was driving three of her children and a friend of theirs to a drill team competition on a recent weekend. The accident occurred on Highway 21 near Austin. The woman was stopped, waiting to make a left turn, when her car was rammed from behind. She had been hit by a pickup truck that failed to stop.

Storm chase leads to a wrongful death suit

Weather can be calm or it can be stormy. Calm weather is peaceful and calls to people to come outside and enjoy it, while stormy weather chases most people inside to seek safety and shelter. Stormy weather has an entirely different effect on storm chasers; they head outside and follow the storm to see if it will turn into a more serious storm, such as a hurricane or a tornado. They follow a storm at high speeds in order to keep up with it and document via video what they find. Such a pursuit recently ended tragically and with a wrongful death lawsuit in Texas.

Two storm chasers who regularly provide storm information and footage to the Weather Channel were pursuing weather that had the potential to become tornadic. They were allegedly driving at speeds of up to 70 mph and ignoring traffic signals and signs. After allegedly ignoring a stop sign, the SUV they were in slammed into another vehicle driven by a local employee of the National Weather Service. The force of the collision killed two of the storm chasers and the occupant of the other vehicle.

What to do if you are a passenger in an Uber accident

Uber and Lyft have become integral parts of many Texans' lives. Lawmakers have even begun to look toward the services to transport Medicaid patients to the hospital. 

While these apps have made life easier for many people, they can make someone's life temporarily harder if the driver ends up in an accident. Regardless if the Uber driver is at fault for the collision, you need to think about your well-being in the immediate aftermath. There are several steps to take during this time to make sure you can pay for all upcoming expenses. 

Texas car accidents can leave many seriously injured

Being on the road, whether as a driver or a passenger, is a dangerous activity. Though many people do not necessarily consider every risk of being on the road, car accidents happen every day. Unfortunately, many of these incidents result in serious injuries to the people involved.

A recent report indicated that multiple people were injured in a car crash in Texas. The incident involved at least three vehicles, and the initial collision took place after a 19-year-old driver did not stop at a stop sign. That vehicle collided with an SUV before being hit by a truck. Authorities suspected that the teen driver of the first vehicle was intoxicated at the time of the accident.

Police say drunk driver caused fatal accident

Car accidents are an unfortunate part of life. Though most people will do whatever they can to prevent them, they cannot always rely on the other drivers that they encounter to do the same. When an accident happens that is caused by a drunk driver, the tragedy is only amplified, since those accidents are usually preventable. This is what local authorities say caused a recent crash here in Texas that took the life of one person and seriously injured another.

The incident happened on a recent evening when two vehicles crashed into one another. Two people in one of the cars were rushed to a nearby hospital. One of them, a 19-year-old woman, was pronounced dead at the hospital. Police have not released details about the driver of the other vehicle, except to say that individual has been hospitalized with serious injuries, but remains stable.
