Despite following all rules of the road and trying to remain safe behind the wheel, drivers in Texas and elsewhere can still become involved in serious, even fatal, accidents. Motorists cannot control the actions of other drivers, and one moment of distraction can lead to a crash with terrible consequences. A deadly wreck happened recently in Bryan and claimed the life of a 32-year-old man.
Reports about the crash offer scant information as to what happened. However, it was stated that the crash occurred around 2:30 a.m. on April 23. The crash happened in the 1200 block of South Texas Avenue.
Police say two cars were involved, but they did not specify the types of vehicles. Nevertheless, the did confirm one deceased victim at the scene, a 32-year-old man from Bryan. The reports states that the other driver was taken to a local hospital for treatment and then released. There was no word given as to which of the drivers may have caused the crash or why.
Wrongful death or personal injury?
Since the report does not specify which of the two drivers caused the accident, affected parties will likely have to wait on the official police report before proceeding with a civil claim. Once it is determined which driver caused the accident, those injured or who lost a loved one in the accident can proceed with pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death claim against the other party or his or her estate. Either way, the plaintiffs will want to work closely with an experienced personal injury attorney in Texas to increase their chances of obtaining a successful outcome.
