Criminal defense: 2 people charged following Texas crash

Car accidents happen everyday in Texas for a variety of different reasons. Because of the size of motor vehicles and the speed at which some of them travel, even a simple collision can have serious complications. Unfortunately, two people in Texas are likely considering their criminal defense after they were allegedly involved in an accident that proved fatal.

The incident that resulted in the loss of a life happened on a day in mid-April. According to reports, a red vehicle was headed south in the center lane of a Texas interstate. A black vehicle was following behind. Unfortunately, a third vehicle is said to have struck the black one, causing a collision that ultimately involved all three.

Unfortunately, the driver of the first vehicle, a 27-year-old man, died at the scene of the accident. The two other drivers were transported to the hospital with injuries described as not life-threatening. However, they have both since been charged with crimes; the driver of the black vehicle is charged with DWI while the driver of the third vehicle is accused of intoxication manslaughter.

An unexpected death such as this is always a tragedy. While the desire to place the blame on someone is understandable, there must be sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt to convict someone of a crime; it is unclear what evidence supports the charges against the two people who survived this accident. Unfortunately, they may be confused about their options and the criminal justice process, prompting them to seek help from a experienced criminal defense attorney in Texas.
