A Texas grandmother and her two grandchildren were injured when their car was hit head-on in Port Neches. The driver of the other car is suspected to have been drunk driving. Police say that they expect to charge the woman with intoxicated assault as a result of the car accident.
The family was headed out of the Hebert Public Library in a Toyota Corolla. A woman driving a Dodge SUV crossed the center lane of Merriman hitting the Toyota head-on. The SUV continued in a westward direction and left the road on the north side. It rode through the grass next to a middle school, finally coming to rest when it hit the brick middle school sign. The driver was transported to a medical center for treatment for her injuries. The grandmother and her grandchildren were transported to nearby hospitals. All three are expected to recover from their injuries.

Police are still investigating the accident. They are planning on taking a statement from the driver of the SUV when she is discharged from the hospital. They are also interviewing witnesses. Some time before the accident, police had been alerted by a witness who allegedly saw an SUV of the same color hit a “no parking” sign in a parking lot, drag the sign and then leave the scene.
The family that was injured in this accident might be entitled to damages. A personal injury attorney might be able to help them obtain a financial settlement. An attorney might help to prepare and file a lawsuit on their behalf. If they won damages, the money could be used to pay their medical bills and help to compensate them for their pain and suffering.
