Whenever a traffic crash happens, there may be serious consequences that permanently change the lives of those involved. Sadly, some result in the loss of life and a disturbing number of fatal motor vehicle accidents have occurred in Houston, and throughout the state of Texas. For those who are trying to deal with the consequences of losing a loved one in a car crash, it is very important to explore all avenues.
An accident that recently took place in Cypress left two people dead. At this time, the identities of those who passed away have not been released by the Harris County Medical Examiner's Office. The accident, which involved a semi truck and car, caused both vehicles to catch fire.
A man who was involved in the crash said that the vehicle he was riding in stalled on the road, prompting the driver of the car to pull into another lane. According to the survivor, the section of 290 westbound they were traveling along did not have a shoulder due to road construction. Next, a semi truck failed to stop and slammed into the vehicle, leaving the truck driver and one of the vehicle's occupants dead.
After a tragic car accident claims the life of a victim, their family members may face a myriad of hardships afterward, such as unbearable emotional pain and financial concerns. As a result, those responsible for causing a deadly auto accident that never should have happened must be held accountable for their actions. For those who decide to take legal action, contacting an attorney may be helpful.
