Fiery crash kills toddler in Texas

It is a sad fact that all too many drivers in Texas take too little care on the roads. To make things worse, when these drivers make a mistake, it is everyone around them that suffers. During the holiday season, events like this are even more prominent as families rush to visit each other, people hurry to get home and others decide to take a chance on driving drunk.

Whatever the cause, a car crash is always a traumatic event for all involved. Devastatingly, one such incident occurred a mere three days before Christmas when two SUVs became engulfed by flames after one allegedly rear-ended the other. The driver of the first vehicle has been reported by officers to have been speeding. He escaped with injuries that were not deemed to be life-threatening.

The occupants of the other car were far less fortunate. While the female driver of the car is expected to survive despite burn injuries, her 2-year-old son and her 28-year-old husband were both killed in the tragic accident. While onlookers had attempted to rescue the infant, the heat of the fire was too much and their efforts were in vain. No alcohol is believed to have been involved in the crash and it is unknown whether the driver of the first vehicle will face charges.

Tragic incidents such as these happen all too often, leaving families devastated and communities in shock. Yet often they could and should have been avoided. If you have been involved in such a crash, it is understandable that you may be keen to seek justice. An attorney can advise you on your options and may be able to help you with your case.
