Car accidents may happen due to slick roads

Sadly, a car crash caused two women's lives to be cut short in Texas, whereas a third person suffered injuries. The car accident occurred along U.S Highway 281 on a Saturday morning. Unfortunately, sometimes, these types of car accidents happen due to the carelessness of a motorist while behind the wheel.

Regarding the recent accident, police said rain was coming down when it happened at a little before 11 a.m. A car was going south on the highway and suddenly lost traction. At that time, it crossed into the lane going north and entered a pickup truck's path.

The pickup truck ended up hitting the car on its side. The person driving the car passed away, and so did her passenger. They were 57 and 36 years old respectively. The 50-year-old pickup truck driver suffered injuries and was transported to the hospital. Police issued a reminder for drivers to slow down and exercise caution when driving in inclement weather.

The pickup truck driver may opt to file a personal injury claim, seeking the reimbursement of damages sustained in these types of car accidents. Likewise, the surviving loved ones of the passenger who died in the Texas crash may choose to file a wrongful death claim. Even though the car driver who reportedly caused the crash ended up dying in the collision, her estate may still be sued, and so may any other person with an ownership interest in the car she was driving when the collision happened. Liability has to be established, based upon a showing of negligence before the civil court hearing the case, before claims for damages will be determined.
