Houston – Two-Vehicle collision kills one
Posted on Monday, December 24th, 2018 at 2:58 pm
One person is killed following a fatal accident involving two vehicles in the 6200 block of Beltway 8, Friday night.
According to initial reports, at around 9:25 p.m. Friday, a minivan is heading south on West Fuqua when it crashed into a Camry at the intersection of South Sam Houston Parkway and Beltway 8. The victim, who was identified only as a 22-year-old man, died as a result of the collision.
Christian Liddell-Campbell, who was behind the wheel of the minivan, was allegedly intoxicated when the crash happened. Authorities are still determining which party had the right of way as the investigation is still in progress.
Getting into a vehicle collision could result in a lot of consequences–death, property damages, and even permanent injuries. Despite these, there are still quite a few people who are choosing to drive while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs.
An intoxicated driver can be charged with reckless driving. If they got into a collision and another party sustained injuries or property has been damaged as a result of the crash, compensation claims can be worth up to millions of dollars.
If you are injured by a DUI driver, the first thing you need to do is call the police. Once the investigation is completed, you can file a lawsuit against the suspect driver and possibly the drinking establishment that served the alcohol. A successful case could help you cover your medical expenses and compensate for your emotional and physical suffering.
