Fatal motor vehicle accidents: Teen killed in Texas

A 17-year-old boy has been tragically killed, with two other people suffering injuries following a serious accident in Killeen the evening of May 29, according to local sources. Texas police responded to the car accident around 7:30 p.m. to find one fatality. At the moment, police are still investigating the crash and have yet to file charges against anyone involved, although charges are sometimes filed in fatal motor vehicle accidents

The report states that a vehicle was headed westbound when the victim attempted to negotiate a turn. This brought his vehicle into the path of another car, which collided with the driver's side. The damage to the vehicle was extensive, and the 17-year-old driver was rushed to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead of his injuries. 

The driver of the other vehicle suffered minor injuries in the crash and was taken to a local hospital. Another teen, who was a passenger in the deceased boy's car, suffered undetermined injuries. That individual was taken to a local hospital and was reported as being in stable condition as of this report. 

Texas police routinely investigate fatal motor vehicle accidents of this type, so their investigative process is finely honed. It is hoped they will be able to determine whether the driver of the other vehicle was responsible for the crash. If they make this determination, that driver will likely face charges pertaining to the accident, as well as possibly facing a lawsuit filed by the family of the deceased driver. A wrongful death suit is filed in civil court and often uses police reports as evidence to support the claim.
