Wrong Way SignDallas, TX- Crashes involving a head-on impact are among the worst accidents to be involved and often end tragically. Such is the case of an Alvarado, Texas accident which left a mother and her two young sons dead as they traveled home early Sunday morning.
CBS Dallas-Fort Worth reports that Maranda Abshire, 22, had just picked up her two sons and her half-sister and was driving on U.S. Highway 67 when they were struck by a pick-up truck traveling the wrong-way.
Police said they had received calls about a wrong-way driver prior to the accident and were heading to the area where the truck was spotted. But they were too late to stop the wrong-way driver before he collided with Abshire’s Mustang.
The impact of the crash killed Maranda, and her two sons; 5-year-old Christopher Adrian Dominguez and 2-year-old Cruz Dominguez. Maranda’s half-sister was also injured, but is recovering from her injuries.
Alvarado’s Police Chief told CBS Dallas-Fort Worth that they believe the pickup driver was intoxicated at the time of the accident; they found several open cans and bottles of beer in his vehicle.
The pickup driver has only been identified as a male from Fort Worth. He was seriously injured and remains hospitalized. No charges have been filed against him, but that could change once police get the results of a blood test.
Drivers, who put lives at risk ,should have to take responsibility for their actions. If you or your loved one has been involved in an accident caused by a wrong-way driver, you should speak to Dallas accident attorney and discuss how you can get the compensation you deserve.
On some occasions, drivers make mistakes and enter a roadway going in the wrong direction. Perhaps the roadway was too dark for a motorist to realize they were entering a road going in the wrong direction or they failed to notice traffic signs. Most motorist who notice they are traveling in the wrong direction do the right thing and turn around before they harm themselves or anyone else.
But intoxicated motorists, even though cars are passing them by, don’t have the faculties to realize they are putting themselves or others at risk. According to the National Traffic Safety Board, drunken or drugged driving are the most common causes of fatal wrong-way crashes.
This accident is a sad reminder of how quickly a family can be torn apart by a negligent or drunken driver. No amount of money can change the impact of losing a loved one too soon and so unnecessarily, but it can give a family a sense of justice and relief from the inevitable financial burdens they face in the wake of a deadly or injurious accident.
