Motor vehicle accidents: woman dead in Texas

A woman has tragically lost her life in a two-car accident in Leander, according to local sources. Texas Highway Patrol has confirmed the death of the 36-year-old female driver on April 6. As with the victims of many motor vehicle accidents, the woman's identity will be withheld from the public until her next-of-kin can be notified of her untimely death. 

According to preliminary reports, it appears that, at around 10 a.m., an SUV driven by a 46-year-old man was traveling south when, for reasons unknown, the driver left the travel lane and collided with the other vehicle. The 36-year-old woman was traveling eastbound on an adjoining road and was struck. She was pronounced dead at the scene by arriving emergency personnel. 

The male driver was rushed to a local hospital. The extent of his injuries was not mentioned in this report. Police have not filed charges against him at this time, but they say their investigation is still ongoing. This means charges could still be forthcoming if police determine the accident was predicated on an error committed by the male driver. 

Motor vehicle accidents can be complicated, and sometimes a clear cause can be hard to find. However, Texas authorities will continue to investigate until it can be determined whether one or both drivers contributed in a material way to the crash. It may be possible for the family of the deceased woman to file a wrongful death suit against the other driver in civil court, provided that evidence of his culpability is discovered by police and accident reconstruction teams.
