Bizarre Double Accident Caused By Drunken Drivers Kills 31-year-old Mother
Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) January 8 , 2013 – Two drunken drivers caused the death of a young mother.
“You don’t see this happen often, two drunken drivers, almost behind one another on the road, both causing accidents within minutes. In this story, a 31-year-old mother, was first hit by a drunk driver. She was a passenger in a vehicle on the Houston freeway. It appeared that no one was hurt, so she climbed out of the car to check on the people in the other vehicle. She was hit and killed instantly by a second drunk driver,” explained Austin personal injury attorney Bobby Lee, of Lee, Gober and Reyna in Austin, Texas.
As stories go, this one is horrific for the unnecessary loss of life because two people chose to drink and drive. It is never okay to get behind the wheel of a vehicle and attempt to drive, while three sheets to the wind. Despite the stiff penalties in Texas, some people still thumb their nose at the laws relating to drinking and driving. Perhaps they think the law does not apply to them or that they can handle anything, whether they have been drinking or not. “Typically, those are the very people who end up dead or killing someone. When does the carnage stop?” asked Lee.
Texas has drunk driving campaigns, seriously stiff criminal penalties, which they recently increased, and yet, people still drink, climb into a vehicle and hit the road. All over Texas, and in other states, tales abound of how a drunk driver killed someone. The families of those left behind are left with only memories of their loved ones, and the only way to find justice is to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
“If you have lost someone in an accident involving a negligent drunk driver, I can make sure that you recover medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and funds to support any children that need care. Call me. I am here to help you and stand by your side as we seek justice for your loss,” added Lee.

- Some big rig under-ride guards are not effective in certain kinds of crashes
Big rigs have under-ride guards to prevent cars from sliding under them during a crash. Some guards are ineffective. If you travel on the highways a fair amount, you may find yourself involved in a collision with a semi-truck. It could happen in the blink of an eye, during a moment of inattention or as a result of road conditions. No matter what the cause, if you slam into the rear end of a big rig, the consequences may be deadly. In the hopes of reducing deaths as a result of vehicles sliding under 18-wheelers, the trucking industry created and [...]
- High speed collision caused by drunk driver with BAC of .17 percent
It goes without saying, if you drink and drive, there are often deadly consequences. The accident scene in this case was a collection of torn and twisted metal, busted glass, torn off vehicle parts and incensed drivers. The man who caused the collision ran a red light at an intersection. Police determined later he had been going so fast, even if he had applied the brakes, the accident would have still happened. A 2012 BMW and a Jeep Cherokee met in a clash of metal and screaming tires in the middle of the road. The Cherokee driver was incensed to [...]
- Voice texting while driving is not any safer than hands-on texting while driving
In an attempt to make texting while driving safer, cellphone makers have started promoting the voice to text feature. It is still a distraction and not any safer than manual texting while driving. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety indicates hands-free cellphones in manual texting mode increase the risk of a crash six-fold. If they are in voice to texting mode, the risk is fourfold. There is no safety benefit in switching from manual texting to voice-activated texting. In fact, it is deceiving to the driver to think that voice to text is safer, allowing them to talk even more [...]
