Personal injury: Teen driver kills CPS workers, 2 children

A fatal accident left three people dead and sent several others to the hospital. Texas police are still investigating the devastating wreck and believe that they know who caused it. While a criminal investigation is not necessary for victims to pursue personal injury claims, information collected by the authorities can be helpful when seeking compensation.

A 61-year-old CPS worker was traveling with three foster children at the time of the accident. They were driving on SH-19 when a pickup truck traveling in the opposite direction slammed into their vehicle head-on. The CPS caseworker and two boys -- aged 10 and 14 -- all died at the scene of the accident. The boys' 12-year-old sister suffered severe injuries and had to be flown to a children's hospital, where she was last listed in critical condition.

According to police, the driver of the pickup was attempting to pass another vehicle, and veered over into oncoming traffic. It is not clear why the 19-year-old driver did not re-merge back into his lane before the wreck. Both he and his 16-year-old passenger suffered injuries, which were described as not life-threatening, although they were taken to an area hospital.

Dealing with an unexpected injury or loss can be devastating, and many people in Texas struggle to face these issues. For victims, personal injury claims can help achieve necessary compensation for their injuries, medical bills, lost wages and more. Unfortunately, not everyone survives car wrecks. When a negligent driver kills another person, the victim's family can pursue legal recourse on their loved one's behalf through the careful actions of a wrongful death claim.
