Head-on collision in Texas leaves 1 dead

As family members and friends throughout Texas will tell you, auto accidents can have rippling effects on people not directly involved in the crash. Sadly, people's lives are pulled out from under them. In addition to the emotional impact of losing a loved one in a car accident, high medical bills and end-of-life costs often come rolling in. If the affected individuals are unprepared to handle these costs, desperation sets in. But they should remember that there may be legal remedies.

A truck accident that happened in San Antonio is a painful example of how senseless fatalities can be. Two vehicles travelling at about 40 to 45 miles per hour collided head-on, leaving one man dead and another seriously injured.

The now deceased man was driving a cement truck. He tried to swerve and miss a van that had reportedly veered into his lane. The truck was hit and eventually turned over. Thirteen emergency units responded, and the van's injured driver was flown to University Hospital. The cement truck driver died at the scene.

When another party's negligence plays a role in an auto accident, those affected have the right to sue that person or the relevant insurance company for compensation. Nothing can bring back a loved one who was killed in a fatal accident, but holding responsible parties accountable can help grieving Texans achieve some degree of solace after experiencing a tragic loss.
