In Texas and beyond, intersections are highly dangerous places where auto accidents often occur. Catastrophic collision injuries are a common result when drivers fail to stop at red lights or are otherwise negligent while navigating crossroads. The Texas A & M community is mourning the loss of one of its students following a recent tragedy.

Investigators are still working on the case; however, preliminary investigations revealed that a 22-year-old college student was stopped at a red light, waiting to turn left at a particular intersection. Before the driver had a chance to safely execute his planned maneuver, another vehicle crashed into his car. Thus, an uneventful scene at a crossroads suddenly became a chaotic event as rescue workers arrived to render aid. Ironically, the driver of that vehicle was also a Texas A & M student.

The driver of the second car was treated and released from a local hospital after the accident. The student driving the car that was hit initially survived the incident. Sadly, he died at the hospital some time later. A third person was also admitted to the hospital for treatment following the collision.

When catastrophic collision injuries or fatalities occur in Texas, investigators often learn that a causal factor in a particular accident was driver negligence. Nothing can replace a lost human life. However, those who survive their injuries, as well as family members of fatally injured victims, are able to seek financial recovery for the damages they’ve suffered by filing injury claims in civil court.
