Two vehicles were moving slowly as it approaches a vehicle that had stopped in the northbound lane of the highway.

They were taken to the nearest hospital where they were treated and released.

In the United States, Texas is one of the leading states in the number of traffic collisions involving fatalities. In fact, in 2015 alone, the state recorded more than 1,300 deaths caused by reckless drivers. Despite the government’s aggressive efforts to keep these cases down, Texas remains the worst state in the country for alcohol-involved car crashes.
If you have been involved in a car accident with a reckless driver, the first thing you need to do is call the police. Once the investigation is completed, you can file a lawsuit against the suspected driver. A successful case could help you cover your medical expenses and compensate for your emotional and physical suffering. Speak with your personal injury lawyer to know more about your rights to fair compensation.
