Young boy dies in drunk driving car accident in Texas

A young Texas boy who lost his life in a car accident is being remembered as a good student and a good person. The boy passed away after a drunk driving car accident that injured everyone involved. He was riding with family members in a pickup truck prior to the accident. A Ford Taurus rear-ended the vehicle, forcing the pickup into oncoming traffic. The pickup collided with a minivan and caused the truck to roll several times.

The Taurus driver was also injured in the crash and later charged with intoxication manslaughter. It is possible that additional criminal charges will be leveled against him. The minivan driver and the boy's other family members are all still in the hospital recovering from their injuries.

While many car accidents simply cannot be avoided, drunk driving accidents occur because of someone intentionally choosing to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. Such a choice can end in tragedy for everyone involved. Unfortunately, this man caused a car accident that has forever changed several people's lives in a negative way.

Although he is facing criminal charges for the actions that caused the car accident, he could also face civil action if the family decides to pursue him in a Texas court. The driver could be held responsible in both criminal and civil courts, which could end in a prison sentence and also hefty civil fines against him. Although there has been no word on whether the boy's family will pursue him in court, it could be an option for them in the future.
