Two Dead in I-10 Multi-Vehicle Crash

A multi-vehicle crash was reported near Van Horn, Texas on Sunday, May 30th, 2021. The Texas Department of Public Safety is the lead investigator of the case. The incident occurred just before 5:00 a.m. on Interstate 10. A Honda CR-V was heading east when the driver lost control of the vehicle due to the slippery roads caused by heavy rain. The out-of-control Honda was later hit by a semi-truck that later rolled over. A second semi-truck then hit the trailer, which caused it to catch on fire. 

Two people died from the incident: the Honda passenger, a 33-year-old woman from Austin, and the first semi-truck driver, a 53-year-old man from Tucson. Several others were also left with injuries requiring further treatment at the hospital: the driver of the Honda, a 53-year-old woman from San Antonio, and the driver of the second semi-truck, a 50-year-old man also from San Antonio. Authorities are still looking into the circumstances that led up to the crash.

Can Crash Victims File A Class Action?

More than 6 million vehicular crashes take place each year. And more than 1 million will be left injured from these crashes. If you happen to find yourself in this situation, you may want to take legal action against the driver who caused your injuries. But what if there is more than one person who is in the same situation as you, and is claiming the same damage as you do? In that case, a class action may be well suited for your car crash situation. This is especially true for multi-vehicle crashes. However, if you are thinking of taking this line of action, be sure to talk to a lawyer first.
