Mariaah Lopez died in a car accident in Houston County, Texas. Brendan Galloway died in the crash as well. Haley Henry was hurt in the accident and Austin Catoe was also involved. The unfortunate incident occurred on June 26, 2016. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
According to reports, Catoe was driving on Farm-to-Market 357 with Lopez, Galloway, and Henry as his passengers. Reports indicate that this was when Catoe drove off of the road and the vehicle rolled. Henry and Catoe were injured and we hope they make a speedy recovery. Lopez and Galloway died as a result of the extreme injuries they sustained. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to the friends and families of Lopez and Galloway.
What was the cause of the accident? Was anyone distracted or under the influence? Are there any other factors missing from this report?
It is always sad to hear about fatal 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.
