Texas car accident kills 1, injures 3; driver jailed

A deadly accident in Texas has left one man dead and injured three others. The car accident occurred in the city of Galveston when a man driving a car rear-ended a horse-drawn carriage. The driver is now facing several criminal charges in connection with this accident.

The crash killed a 57-year-old man and injured his 46-year-old wife, an 18-year-old woman and the carriage driver. The injured parties were taken to a local hospital in stable condition. A car passenger was also taken to the hospital but later left the facility against the advice of medical personnel.

The 22-year-old car driver apparently tried to leave the scene of the car accident. However, witnesses were able to detain him until the authorities showed up. The man allegedly admitted to drinking prior to the accident and failed the administered sobriety tests. He was taken to a local hospital for a blood draw. He has since been charged with intoxicated manslaughter and three counts of intoxicated assault and was being held at the Galveston County Jail with a bond of $300,000.

The deadly Texas car accident remains under investigation. Being in a carriage leaves people vulnerable to the choices other drivers make while on the road. One person lost their life and three others now have to deal with both the physical and emotional fall-out as they struggle to recover from their injuries. The family of the deceased man, as well as the others who were injured, retain their right to seek monetary damages from allegedly negligent parties. A successful claim typically includes reimbursement for out of pocket expenses, as well as for pain and suffering occasioned by the incident.
