Three siblings – a sixth grader, an eighth grader, and a junior in high school, died in a wreck on March 29, 2019 in Bastrop, Texas. Their friend, a 2018 Huntsville High School graduate, also died in the wreck. The siblings’ mother survived the wreck but is now in critical condition.
The collision happened when the siblings’ vehicle was stopped while waiting to make a turn and was rear-ended by a pickup truck. Authorities told local news stations that surveillance video shows the pickup truck did not attempt to stop “until .6 seconds prior to the crash, indicating possible distraction (cell phone) in the vehicle.”
When a person fails to follow traffic laws and causes a collision, such as by driving while distracted or failing to yield the right of way to other vehicles, Texas law makes them liable to their victim or their victim’s family for civil damages.
