Caitlin Smyth died in a Dripping Springs, Texas car accident. Ricky Williams and Kyle Alba died in the crash as well. The unfortunate incident took place on May 8, 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, Smyth was driving a vehicle on Highway 290 with Williams and Alba as passengers. Reports indicate that for an unknown reason Smyth lost control of the vehicle and drove into the path of other vehicles. Another car that was driving in the opposite direction crashed into the back of Smyth’s vehicle. There was a total of five people that died including Williams, Smyth, and Alba. Two occupants were also hurt in the accident. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to the friends and families of Smyth, Williams, and Alba. We also hope that those injured make a speedy recovery.
What was the cause of the fatal accident? Was anyone distracted or under the influence? 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 or personal injury lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits.
