Anthony Hogue and another person were injured, and two people died in a car accident in Cypress, Texas. The fatal incident occurred on November 19, 2015. The cars crashed on Highway 290. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit, especially if the truck driver is shown to be at fault.
Hogue and three other people were riding on the highway and suddenly their car broke down. Hogue’s friend that was driving the car stepped out to see what was wrong with it. The passengers stayed in the car. The driver saw an 18-wheeler coming towards the stopped car and attempted to warn the truck driver by hand movements. The truck driver kept driving and crashed right into the vehicle. Both vehicles erupted into flames. Two passengers were hurt. The truck driver and one passenger of the stopped car died. Our prayers and deepest sympathies go out to those involved and their family and friends.
Why didn’t the truck driver see the stopped car? Was the truck driver distracted or under the influence? What are the other factors that are missing from this report?
Although the police have their own reports, they cannot always be fully relied upon. There are some questions that may still need answers and some actions that may need explanations. Personal injury lawyers do not always rely on the police reports. They often hire private investigators to find the answers to additional questions. Investigators often obtain helpful information that is not included in the police report, information that family members sometimes want to know.
The facts of this case may support a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits.
