On Behalf of | Jan 10, 2014 | Car Accidents |

A 59-year old male has died in a car accident on I-10. The deceased was a passenger in a Chevrolet Impala. The fatality occurred at about 9 a.m. on Tuesday morning. We send our condolences to his family.

The Impala was travelling westbound on the Katy Freeway near Park Ten Boulevard when it was rear-ended by a Chevrolet Tahoe. The SUV slammed into the car with such force and alacrity that the passenger of the car died on impact or shortly thereafter at the scene. The driver of the Impala was airlifted to a nearby hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

A sleepy, medicated, or distracted driver is oftentimes the faulting party in a crash such as this one.The driver of the SUV did not appear to have been injured nor did he appear to have been impaired. The cause of this accident remains under investigation by police officials.

In a city of over four million people, it is imperative that Houston drivers exercise the utmost caution at all times.

Those injured in car accidents may suffer debilitating injuries and life-long medical problems. Oftentimes, people injured in car accidents do not know whom to turn to with questions. As many may attest, navigating the insurance claim system can prove to be callous and challenging to someone who does not know the ins and outs of insurance. Passengers, in particular, may not know their legal standing after being injured in an accident.

Injured individuals may have questions that could be best addressed by an experienced personal injury lawyer. Those injured in car accidents can reach a knowledgeable Houston and Katy personal injury lawyer at 713-572-4900.
