Texas Tech Student Killed in Car Crash
Learning that their child was involved in a serious car accident can be frightening news for parents. If the crash turns out to be fatal, the parents may want to know as much as they can about the event in order to better understand how they wish to move forward with the situation. Though a fatal car accident will undoubtedly lead to emotional struggles, the family of the victim may want to logically understand their legal options.
A family in Texas may be considering their choices after a young woman was recently killed in a car crash. It was reported that the woman was apparently driving a vehicle when she was involved in the crash with a police officer. It was suspected that one of the vehicles did not stop at a red light, but at the time of the report, it was not disclosed which vehicle may have run the light.
The girl, unfortunately, suffered fatal injuries in the collision. She was listed as a 20-year-old individual who was set to start school at Texas Tech. Some of her peers expressed shock and grief over the loss of the young woman. The officer involved in the accident suffered minor injuries.

Until it is revealed which driver may have failed to stop at the red light, it is unknown who may have been at fault for the car accident. However, the incident should continue to be under investigation. If it is found that the police officer did not stop at the light, he could potentially be considered at fault. If this turns out to be the case, the family of the victim may wish to look into wrongful death claims in Texas to determine whether filing such a claim could be right for their situation.
