Auto accidents: Foster kids among those killed in head-on wreck

Three people -- including two minors -- were killed and another child was seriously injured in a recent head-on collision. According to authorities, the adult victim was an employee of Texas Child Protective Services who was transporting three siblings. Deaths from unexpected auto accidents such as this are understandably devastating for surviving family members, and many choose to turn to wrongful death claims to address the wide of range of damages they must deal with.

At the time of the wreck, the CPS worker was traveling with a 12-year-old girl and her 14 and 10-year-old brothers. While northbound in a no-passing zone, their vehicle was struck by an oncoming vehicle. Police say the other driver was trying to pass another southbound vehicle despite the presence of the double yellow line.

Tragically, the CPS worker and the brothers were all killed in the collision. The young girl was critically injured and had to be airlifted to an area children's hospital for treatment. The 19-year-old driver that police say was responsible for the wreck was also injured, as was his 16-year-old passenger. Both were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Police in Texas are still investigating the crash, although it is not clear if they expect to file charges. However, criminal charges are not necessary for families pursuing wrongful death claims following fatal auto accidents. Still, some families choose to utilize information collected during police investigations to help demonstrate negligence as they pursue compensation and justice on behalf of their loved ones.
