Bus crash claims lives of 4 young softball players

It is a sad fact that every time you venture onto the roads, you effectively take your life into your hands. One negligent driver can be all it takes for disaster to occur and the consequences can be dire. Motor vehicle accidents can result in serious injuries for all concerned and in many cases they cost lives. One such fatal accident tragically befell a bus carrying a softball team from North Central Texas College.

The women's softball team was said to have been on its way home in the bus, traveling along an Oklahoma interstate when the accident occurred. According to reports, an 18-wheeler collided with the side of the bus after veering across the highway's median. The 53-year-old driver survived the incident, but was treated in a hospital. The members of the softball team were not all so fortunate.

Four of the young women, aged from 18 to 20, were killed in the incident. According to a member of the Highway Patrol, three were dead at the scene of the accident. The fourth was taken to a hospital, where she later died. Of the other 11 team members, 3 remained in the hospital, while the rest, along with the team's coach, were released following treatment.

It is unknown why the accident occurred and police are continuing to investigate. Unfortunately, this may be little comfort to those who have lost loved ones in this sad incident. Some may decide to pursue a wrongful death claim. If you find yourself in a similar position, you may find the advice of an attorney useful. He or she can examine your situation and help you decide how best to proceed.
