Texas car accident kills 1; intoxication suspected

Intoxication is suspected in a motor vehicle accident that took the life of a Texas man. The crash occurred in Houston and involved three trucks. One other person sustained injuries in the car accident.

Authorities believe that a man in a silver pickup truck was traveling south when he failed to stop at a red light. He collided with a green pickup truck. The force of the impact pushed the two trucks into a red pickup truck that was also stopped at a red light. The driver who ran the red light sustained minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital.

The man in the green pickup truck passed away at the scene of the accident. Fortunately, the third driver sitting at the light was uninjured in the crash. A preliminary investigation into the wreck suggests that intoxication may have been a contributing factor in the incident. It is likely that the accident investigation is still ongoing.

Once the investigation is over and the report is completed, the surviving victim and the other man's family are entitled to receive a copy of it. The report will help clear up any questions or concerns they may have about this Texas car accident and could also assist them if they are considering legal action against the first driver. Whenever authorities cite negligence as a factor in a crash, it may help bolster any legal claims that victims or surviving family members might make. In addition to any civil action such drivers often face, they can also find themselves accused of criminal charges for their roles in such fatal crashes.
