2-car accident takes life of 22-year-old man

Accidents happen in the blink of an eye. While some are truly unpreventable, others occur because of someone's negligent or reckless actions. It might be that someone is driving under the influence or is driving while distracted. A driver may not check his or her mirrors before changing lanes. It's this last example that occurred in Lubbock, Texas, and the inattentive actions of a driver resulted in the death of a 22-year-old man.

The accident occurred in the afternoon hours of May 18 on the West Loop 289's service road. The driver of a 1992 Cadillac tried to changes lanes. The vehicle struck a 2002 Ford, in which the victim was a passenger. The victim was ejected from the vehicle when it flipped and rolled. When the crash was over, the Explorer was on top of the Cadillac. The victim died at the scene.

Two other people in the Explorer and one passenger from the Cadillac were all transported to University Medical Center. The injuries they suffered were not considered life-threatening.

The driver of the Cadillac was arrested by police on a parole violation and other warrants. He is being held without bail. It is not known if he will face charges for his role in this accident.

When someone is injured or killed in a car accident that is not his or her fault, compensation may be sought through civil courts for damages, losses and expenses. For those families who have lost a loved one, they may pursue compensation through a wrongful death suit. Claims may be made for emotional trauma, medical expenses, pain and suffering and loss of companionship, among others.
