Texas car accident leads to injuries, criminal charges

A deadly car accident in Texas has led to a local man being accused of felony charges. Authorities received a call for assistance and when they arrived, they found an overturned vehicle and a wounded woman lying in front of it. The woman was conscious and, when asked by officers, stated that she had been ejected from her vehicle. Another vehicle was involved in the car accident, but it was abandoned.

A witness to the accident told authorities that he was driving when he noticed a Camaro traveling behind him. When that driver attempted to pass him, he lost control of the Camaro. The Camaro then started to fishtail and struck a wall before hitting the rear end of the woman's Scion. The impact of the crash forced the Camaro off of the road, and it came to rest in a field. When the witness stopped to assist the injured female, he soon realized that the other driver had left the scene of the accident.

Detectives who were brought in to investigate were able to locate the residence of the Camaro driver, but when they went to his home, they could not find him. The day after the crash, a detective spoke to the man by phone. He claimed that he had not been in the vehicle at the time and reportedly had no knowledge about the crash. The man claimed that his roommate had taken the car, but when the roommate was questioned, he stated he had not taken it and was instead at a bar in the Houston area.

A little over a week after the crash, the owner of the vehicle reportedly confessed and claimed he was involved in an accident, but knew nothing about another vehicle being involved. The confession cleared the roommate, and further investigation revealed that the driver had been texting before the car accident occurred. He was arrested, but later released on bond.

The woman involved suffered multiple injuries and was required to stay in the hospital for a lengthy period of time. Car accident victims often have legal rights allowing them to pursue a civil lawsuit against those responsible for their injuries. A successful personal injury case could result in a monetary award that could assist her in paying her medical bills or any other costs associated with this Texas car accident.
