2 DEAD IN 4-VEHICLE CRASH IN NORTH HOUSTON

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — A man and woman tragically died Jan. 10 in a head-on collision involving several vehicles in the 11600 block of Bannister Lane at Little York.

A Dodge truck was westbound on Little York when the driver lost control of the vehicle, crossed the median, and struck an eastbound Kia, according to local police. The Kia then hit a tow truck that was towing a fourth vehicle.

A female passenger was ejected from the Dodge truck and pronounced dead at the accident scene. The truck driver was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the Kia was also pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. No other injuries were reported.

Police said they believe speed may have played a role in the crash but did not release any details about their ongoing investigation into the crash.

Commentary on the Houston Head-On Collision that Left Two Dead

Houston Car Crash LawyerI am deeply saddened to learn of this tragic head-on collision that left two of our local community members dead. I extend my heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased.

Our country has two primary bodies of law, criminal and civil. Civil law is designed to protect victims from the wrongdoing of another party by putting the injured party in the position they would have been in had the wrong never occurred. In wrongful death suits, the focus of the law shifts from the deceased to the family of the dead and seeks to compensate for the loss sustained at the hand of the negligent party. While money is inadequate to compensate for the loss of life, it is the best the law can provide under the circumstances

While it is challenging to point blame with the details currently available, it is clear a mistake was made that caused this accident. However, it is vital to recognize that the error could have been made upstream. The report indicates the driver of the Dodge lost control of the vehicle before crashing through the median. Did the driver’s loss of control result from something outside their control? My firm specializes in product defect law. I see countless cases each year caused by manufactures failure to provide a good product. Did that happen here? Perhaps a tire blew out and rendered the driver’s inputs futile?

Determining fault is never a simple matter and will require trained professionals. I hope the families involved will have the patience to see this matter through and find answers to their questions.
