A recent major accident in Texas involved six vehicles, and the incident left several people with injuries. Law enforcement has been carefully reconstructing the accident and investigating the circumstances leading to the event, and they are considering filing criminal charges against one driver. There is significant evidence to suggest that the negligent or reckless actions of this one driver led to the multi-vehicle collision.
Details of a complex accident
When there are multiple vehicles involved with an accident, it can be difficult for police to determine what happened and identify the responsible party. The driver who may face criminal charges was driving a pickup truck at the time of the crash. According to reports, the truck was speeding when it went around vehicles stopped at an intersection. The truck driver began moving erratically through the intersection in the wrong direction.
After swerving between lanes, the truck struck another vehicle, and then it became airborne. This started a chain-reaction crash that impacted several vehicles and ultimately resulted in injuries for multiple people, including children. While police are still investigating and drawing conclusions, it is possible the man will face criminal charges.
Options for victims
The driver’s choice to operate his vehicle recklessly led to the injury of multiple people. These victims may benefit from exploring the legal options available to them, which may include the option of filing a civil claim. Accident victims may be able to claim compensation for their medical expenses, property damage and other losses they experienced as a result of the accident.
