Tragic car accident takes 4 lives in Texas

Conroe, Texas was the site of what officials are calling one of the worst crashes in the area's history on March 23, when a family of four was tragically killed. The car accident happened in the early hours of a rainy day on Texas 105. The crash claimed the lives of two adults, aged 27 and 28, along with their two young children, aged 6 and 8.

According to investigators, the family's vehicle was traveling westbound when a truck traveling in the opposite direction suddenly veered into their lane and struck the car head-on. Despite the fact that all four family members were wearing seatbelts, they were pronounced dead at the scene. The truck driver, a 40-year-old Texas native, was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for internal and head injuries that were described as non-life-threatening.

Investigators have ruled out alcohol as a possible contributor to the car accident, though the investigation is still ongoing. The severity of the crash has prompted one district attorney to count high speed as a potential contributor, as well as the inclement weather on the highway that morning. The crash has been described as unusual, both in terms of the extent of damage to both vehicles and the cost in human life.

It is likely the driver of the truck will be questioned once he is well enough, and he may also face charges depending upon the outcome of the investigation. Should the truck driver be deemed responsible for the car accident, the surviving family of the deceased individuals could have the option to pursue civil litigation. Depending upon the severity of the charges faced by the driver, the family may need to consult Texas traffic law to determine their best course of action and whether they may be able to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
