Tragic car accident leaves Texas mother dead

With busy schedules, hectic roads and negligent drivers, it's no surprise that there are car accidents around the country on a regular basis. In Houston, it is all too common to read about another crash. However, an auto accident is particularly troubling when a life is lost. Regardless of the reason why a fatal car accident takes place, there is a great deal of emotional pain for those that lose a loved one. It is imperative for drivers to be more cautious every time they get behind the wheel and try to prevent these tragedies from occurring.

After shoplifting from a Pasadena store at roughly 1 a.m., a Texas woman was approached by a security guard. After shoving the guard to the ground, she climbed into a pickup truck and took off. The value of the merchandise that she had taken is estimated to be around $50.

Next, the shoplifter drove through a stop light and collided with another vehicle in her attempt to get away. The vehicle that she struck had two occupants, a mother and daughter from Baytown. The mother, who was driving, lost her life in the crash, while her 13-year-old daughter was hospitalized due to her injuries.

Drivers have a responsibility to drive safely, obey traffic laws and do everything they can to avoid causing another painful crash. Not only is there a significant amount of emotional pain and suffering, but those who survive these wrecks sometimes struggle with personal injury and financial problems as well (medical and funeral expenses, etc.). If you are going through any of this, you could benefit from talking to an attorney.
