Rear end collisions claim lives, Texas family mourns three people

Car accidents in Texas are an unfortunate certainty. Many times they truly can be considered an accident -- no one involved did anything deliberate or negligent to cause the crash. However, in other cases these accidents are a direct result of unlawful actions. Rear end collisions often result from the carelessness of a driver who causes them. Recently here in Texas, two young women reportedly died as the result of this type of crash and police are investigating the driver of the vehicle that hit them.

Alcohol-related crashes in Texas all too common

There are those drivers who make the dangerous decision to drive while intoxicated. These drivers are more likely to cause car accidents that result in injury or even death. Anyone unfortunate enough to be affected by one of these alcohol-related crashes may have anger toward the driver who caused the crash. There is no satisfying explanation for why someone would choose to drive drunk. Recently, a man in Texas was accused of driving under the influence after colliding with another vehicle on an interstate and police are working to determine if he is, in fact, the cause of a 14 car pile-up.

Texas car accidents often fatal

Car accidents are an unfortunate occurrence in Texas. Fatal accidents that are preventable are especially tragic. The loved ones who are left behind have the difficult task of attempting to carry on with their lives, all the while knowing that the person they mourn did not have to die. Recently, one of these car accidents took the life of a mother and injured her daughter. Police say that another woman is to blame for the crash.

Minor accidents can lead to major injuries

Concussions, fractures and burns are all injuries that can happen when a person is involved in a major car accident, but what about a fender-bender? It’s easy to brush off these types of accidents as minor and think that no long-term harm can come as a result. But for those in Texas who have been in a minor accident, the reality may be quite different.
