Woman killed in fiery accident in Harris County

A multi-vehicle accident in north Harris County, Texas, last Sunday resulted in the death of a woman and sent two other individuals to the hospital. According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, the fatal accident happened at around 2:30 on Sunday morning at Farrell Road and FM 1960.

According to investigators, an SUV that was westbound on FM 1960 failed to stop for two vehicles ahead of it that were stopped for a red light. The SUV collided with both vehicles, causing them to collide with another car and a pickup truck.

The first car that was hit caught fire and burned. The woman inside that car died. The SUV that failed to stop rolled over and also burned, but people at the scene were able to rescue two people in the vehicle. Three other people suffered minor injuries and were taken to a local hospital. Authorities are investigating whether alcohol played a role in the crash.

The loss of a loved one in a fatal car crash is devastating for a family. In addition to their grief they may have lost a person who provided financial support as well as care and companionship to other family members. When the death was caused by the negligence of another person, Texas law allows the next of kin to bring a wrongful death lawsuit to recover compensation for their loss. The damages that can be recovered include loss of support and loss of companionship. Funeral expenses and other out-of-pocket costs can also be recovered.
