Driver suffered catastrophic injuries in fiery collision

No matter how carefully a person behaves behind the wheel, all it takes is a single reckless driver to change things forever. A car accident can lead to serious or even catastrophic injuries, which are more than just physically painful. Most victims also deal with the emotional and financial aftermath of being hurt in a wreck. Getting compensation for these injuries is often essential to a fully recovery, and victims may choose to use information gathered by police when pursuing personal injury claims.

Texas police recently arrested an alleged drunk driver who they say caused a devastating accident. Before the crash, officers noticed a driver behaving erratically at around 10:40 p.m. and attempted to initiate a traffic stop. The driver would not pull over and instead sped away. Police eventually caught up and watched as the driver collided with the rear of a pickup.

The collision was so severe that it knocked the driver unconscious and caused the pickup truck to burst into flames. Initial attempts to free the driver were unsuccessful, and officers were concerned that the truck might explode. Eventually the woman awoke, and police were able to shatter a window and pull her out.

Both the driver who caused the accident and the victim were taken to the hospital for treatment. Although the woman is expected to recover, the timeline is unclear. Catastrophic injuries can take months and even years to improve, and many people live the remainder of their lives in pain. Successfully pursued personal injury claims can help victims in Texas recover compensation for their injuries, including those which are physical, emotional and financial.
