Raven Hernandez in fatal rear-end crash in San Antonio, Texas.

| Mar 23, 2015 | Wrongful Death |

Reports coming out of San Antonio, Texas state that Raven Hernandez, 19, was involved in a rear-end car accident. Law enforcement believes that the accident happened at about 4 PM on I-10 West near Wurzbach Road. Hernandez was a passenger in an SUV that was on the side of the road due to a tire blow-out. A Ford F-150 crashed into the SUV along with another truck on the road. Hernandez died from the injuries she sustained in the accident. The driver of the Ford was injured, but the driver of the SUV and of the other truck that was hit were not injured.

Our hearts and thoughts go out to the victim’s family and community, who we imagine have been deeply affected by this tragedy. We imagine that they may have many questions. Why did the driver of the Ford hit the car that Hernandez was a passenger of? Was it due to a vehicle malfunction? Was this a case of distracted driving? Does this incident trigger a wrongful death claim?
