Auto accident claims three lives

When someone is involved in a fatal auto accident, there are often far-reaching consequences on top of unbearable emotional devastation. For example, the loved ones they leave behind may be unable to cover funeral expenses or they may experience other financial challenges brought on by the death of their family member, such as a lost source of income. In Houston, and across Texas, people who are suffering with the ramifications of a deadly car accident should explore all avenues.

Authorities say that a truck driver was responsible for a head-on collision that recently claimed the lives of three people. The crash took place at roughly 5:15 p.m. on Highway 13 in Houston County, Tennessee. The truck driver, a 37-year-old man, was taken to the hospital. Three people were riding in the vehicle he struck and lost their lives: a 20-year-old man, 19-year-old woman and their child, who was 11 days old.

The infant who passed away was riding in a child safety seat and the child's father was using a seat belt, but the woman was not using her seat belt. However, officials said that the outcome of the crash would not have changed if she had been wearing a seat belt. While investigators have said they may know what caused the collision, they have not yet divulged additional information

Although some people will never be able to fully move on from a fatal auto accident, those affected should try to do everything they can to properly address the tragedy. For some people, this could include contacting an attorney and determining whether or not a lawsuit is advisable.
