Car crash results in deaths and shuts down Highway 105

Highway 105 was shut down for several hours on March 23 after two vehicles crashed into each other. The fatal car accident resulted in four deaths and one injury.

At approximately 5:30 a.m., a white Dodge pickup driving eastbound veered into the westbound lane. A silver Volkswagon Jetta heading west then broadsided the truck. The occupants of the Jetta, a female driver, a male passenger and two young passengers, were killed in the accident. The male driver of the truck was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he was listed in serious condition.

The crash took place north of Houston near Fostoria, and Highway 105 remained closed until 12:30 p.m. The accident is still under investigation.

Because the accident is still being investigated, the possible negligence of either party has not been determined. In cases such as these, authorities use methods of recreating an accident scene in an attempt to determine what might have caused the crash. Authorities will want to find out why the truck veered across lanes and if there are extenuating circumstances that might have caused such an action. However, if driver negligence on the part of the truck driver is found to be the cause of the fatal crash, the surviving family members of those killed would be within their rights to seek compensation. The family could seek the advice of a personal injury attorney and decide if pursuing damages is the right course of action, and if so, the attorney may assist the family in navigating the legal process to receive compensation for the damages.
