Texas car accident claims lives of 2 A&M cadets

Details are few in a recent tragic crash that claimed the life of two young people here in Texas. Both of the victims of a fatal car accident were cadets in the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets. A third victim who was also a cadet survived the crash with injuries.

According to a report, the three cadets had travelled back to their hometown to participate in a JROTC event. As they drove to return to the Texas A&M campus, the small truck in which they rode was struck by another vehicle. It appears that the car was driving in the opposite direction in the wrong lane when it smashed head-on into the vehicle occupied by the cadets.

The car accident ended the life of the two college students. The young man who was injured was expected to remain in the care of a hospital for at least two weeks. After that time, he may have a long period of recovery before returning to his normal activities.

Like others who have been the victim of a car accident, the survivor and the family of the deceased may elect to consider making a claim against the driver who is deemed to have caused the fatal crash. This claim would come under our state's personal injury laws and could include demands for damages such as the cost of medical care, lost wages and pain and suffering. Personal injury actions are available to those who are seriously injured in a crash, as well as those who have suffered the loss of a loved one as a result of the negligent actions of another individual, as is likely the case here in this crash.
