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.

Though the exact circumstances of the crash are still being reviewed by authorities, they have taken the 20-year-old driver of the pickup truck that was involved into custody. He suffered minor injuries. Authorities have charged him with intoxication manslaughter, intoxication assault and possession of marijuana.

Whether a driver is operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the potential danger remains the same. A drunk driver can cause serious harm to innocent people, and so can a drugged driver. Families here in Texas who have been involved in a car accident that was caused by someone operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol may wish to pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim against any parties deemed responsible.

  • Great Lawyer For A Reasonable Price

    Mr. Hulett was a very competent and effective lawyer for me in my custody case. Not only did we get the desired result but he did it for less than half of what my ex paid to her attorney on the same matter.
