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. 

An eastbound vehicle behind the truck attempted to pass and smashed headlong into the wrong-way vehicle. The force of the impact killed the 18-year-old male passenger in the wrong-way car, as well as the driver of the eastbound vehicle. A 2-year-old child was in the backseat of the eastbound vehicle and was injured in the crash as well, though officials say he is now in stable condition. The driver of the wrong-way car is in critical condition in a local hospital. 

The driver of the wrong-way car may well end up facing charges for his involvement in the fatal crash. As with many car accidents of this type, however, even if Texas police do not file charges, the families of the deceased as well as the injured parties are entitled to file wrongful death and/or personal injury lawsuits. These suits are handled in civil court separately from any criminal charges.
