One driver hospitalized after Sugar Land 2-vehicle car accident

A car accident can often occur out of nowhere, with a driver least expecting it. In many cases, the seriously injured individual is not even the driver that caused the car accident. This appears to be the case in one Fort Bend County accident that occurred near the Sugar Land airport.

Late on a Saturday night, around 11:30 p.m. on April 14, a sports utility vehicle that was reportedly driving at high speeds was traveling northbound on Highway 6 when it inexplicably veered from the left lane in which it was traveling. From there, the SUV operator lost control and proceeded across the median strip into oncoming traffic, where it crashed head-on with a southbound car.

Right now, authorities are uncertain as to why the SUV crossed into oncoming traffic, but police are likely still investigating the late night crash. While the driver of the car that was struck is supposedly in stable condition after being taken to a local hospital by Life Flight, police say serious injuries resulted from the car accident. The SUV driver was taken to a local hospital by ground transportation, though serious injuries were not suspected.

The car driver will likely want to be informed of all police findings in regard to the car accident. With this information, a determination may be possible about the viability of pursuing a personal injury claim against any party deemed negligent in causing or contributing to the collision. If successful, this Fort Bend County personal injury claim may provide the injured driver of the car with remuneration for medical expenses and lost wages as well as any consequential pain and suffering occasioned by the crash.
