A motorcyclist died in a wrong-way accident with a drunk driver in Round Rock, Texas. This fatal accident occurred on November 12, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially since the wrong-way driver was charged.
John McClintock was driving in the opposite direction of traffic on Interstate 35. Police officers had received a tip phone call about McClintock driving the wrong way. The police were trying to get his attention so he could stop driving the wrong direction, but reports state that McClintock didn’t see them. Shortly after that McClintock crashed with a motorcycle. The driver of the motorcycle died because of extreme injuries. Our hearts and prayers go out to the motorcycle riders’ family and friends.
McClintock was found to be driving inebriated when the head-on crash took place. He was charged with intoxication manslaughter.
There is simply no excuse for operating a vehicle while under the influence. Every time someone turns the key to start the engine it is their responsibility to ensure that they are not impaired in any way. This man has taken the life of another person which is the most heinous crime out of them all.
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 wrongful death lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death lawsuits.
