Autumn Reede died in a car accident in Galveston, Texas. The other driver, Randy Alcorn, wasn’t injured. The fatal and unfortunate accident occurred on December 17, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
Reede was driving Highway 35 in the northbound lanes. Alcorn was driving a truck in the southbound direction. For an unknown reason, Reede’s vehicle and the truck crashed into each other head-on. Reportedly, Alcorn was not hurt. Reede died as a result of the extreme injuries she sustained. Our hearts and prayers go out to those involved and their family and friends.
It is always sad to hear about car collisions, and this accident is equally as sad. The roads are always a place where unpredictable moments take place. That is why driving safely is so important.
What caused Reede and Alcorn to crash? Was one of the drivers distracted or under the influence? What other factors are missing from this report?
Although the police are doing their own investigating, 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 wrongful death lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death lawsuits.
