Student arrested for drunk driving accident in Texas

Losing a loved one due to an accident is hard. When it's related to a drunk driving accident, you may be angered by the negligence that led to your loved one's death. In some cases, you may be able to seek compensation for your loss; although money won't bring your loved one back, it will help you through this difficult financial time.

Readers in Texas might have heard about this drunk driving accident that resulted in the deaths of two people. According to the news, a 21-year-old from Alabama was traveling at around 80 to 100 mph when he struck a vehicle in Austin, Texas. Reports claim that the car hit a Toyota Prius, and the Prius then struck a Camry head-on. Unfortunately, the accident led to the deaths of the 60-year-old woman and her 18-year-old son inside the Prius.

Another passenger from the Prius and three of the passengers from the Camry all had to be taken to the hospital for treatment. They allegedly suffered from broken bones; one had a broken neck and another had a broken back, according to the news.

Officers stated that the man who allegedly caused the accident was cocky and indifferent; they said he refused to give a blood sample at the scene. However, when he was treated at the hospital, his blood alcohol content level came back at 0.27 percent, which is well above the legal limit. Now, he faces 19 felony charges, some of which include counts for intoxication manslaughter, aggravated assault, intoxication assault and the failure to stop and render aid.
