Deadly head-on crash kills two in Texas

Car accidents are common on Texas roads but, fortunately, not all automobile incidents involve injuries and deaths. Many collisions between cars, trucks and other personal vehicles simply involve the exchanging of the drivers' insurance and contact information and calls for tow trucks if the vehicles are unable to operate. Though it is not uncommon for individuals to walk away from auto accidents without suffering significant physical harm, serious accidents do still occur and put people's lives at risk.

Just last week, a tragic accident happened in Guadalupe County. The incident involved two vehicles that were traveling in opposite directions down FM 466. The driver of a car in the northbound lane crossed the center line of the highway and crashed head-on with a car traveling in the southbound lane. Investigators have not yet determined why the northbound driver left her lane and collided with the second car.

As a result of the crash, the drivers of both cars died. The driver of the northbound car died at the scene of the accident, while the driver of the southbound car died at the hospital. A passenger in the southbound car also sustained serious injuries.

Head-on collisions are often devastating accidents because the combined speed of the involved cars can be very high. As evident by this story, fatalities are possible in head-on collisions as well as serious physical injuries. As the survivor of this crash recovers from his injuries, he may begin to consider what rights he has to pursue legal claims against the estate of the responsible driver. Personal injury claims that arise out of car accidents can provide victims with financial support to move on with their lives.
