Jennifer Crain died in an alleged drunk driving accident in Conroe, Texas. Doris Moorer and Eric Shirley died in the crash as well. The unfortunate incident occurred on April 22, 2016. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
According to reports, Chad Fletcher was driving an 18-wheeler under the influence on Highway 105. Reports indicate that this was when Fletcher collided with a vehicle holding Crain, Moorer, Shirley, and a child. Crain, Moorer, and Shirley died as a result of the extreme injuries they sustained. The child was taken to receive emergency medical treatment and his condition is unknown. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to the friends and families of Crain, Moorer, and Shirley. We also hope that the child makes a speedy recovery.
Fletcher was taken to jail and taken up on three charges of intoxication manslaughter and one charge of injury to a child.
Why was Fletcher allegedly under the influence? Was there anything that could have prevented this accident? Are there any other factors missing from this report?
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.
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 and personal injury lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death or personal injury lawsuits.
