Savannah Michelle Taylor, 21, was killed in a fatal car accident in Magnolia, Texas. According to law enforcement, the accident occurred on FM 1774. Taylor was driving south on the highway in a Ford Edge when another driver, Xavier Keyshawn Nero, 17, who was driving a Ford Explorer, crashed into her head-on. Reports state that Nero overcorrected after he went off the road, which caused him to collide with Taylor’s car. Taylor was killed from the injuries she sustained in the accident, while Nero was taken to the hospital and released. We wonder if this case could trigger a wrongful death claim.

We wonder why the driver lost control of the vehicle. Was there a vehicle malfunction? Was there an obstacle in the road that he was attempting to avoid?
