Grand jury indicts 25-year-old man for manslaughter in crash

Last October, a horrific accident on Interstate 35 in McLennan County, Texas, took the lives of two women and injured three others. The man police say was responsible for the car accident has now been indicted by a McLennan County grand jury and charged with two counts of second-degree felony manslaughter.

The accident reports state that the 25-year-old man from Robinson, Texas, was driving recklessly and speeding around 10:15 p.m. His vehicle struck the back of a van that was towing a trailer. The impact caused the van to leave the road and roll. Two women from North Texas were killed and three more were injured in the accident

The man said that the trailer did not have any lights and when he realized it was in front of him, he swerved into the center lane. He said there was a car there, though, so he came back into the other lane and hit the trailer.

A state trooper reported that the man's speedometer was still showing 89 mph when he looked at it after the accident. In addition, the trooper said the trailer's lights were working.

The family members of the two women who were killed may be able to seek compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit against the man who struck the van. The injured parties may seek compensation for their medical bills and other losses in a personal injury lawsuit.

If you have lost someone in a car accident due to the reckless or negligent actions of another, you may be able to pursue compensation through a similar lawsuit. An attorney can give you more information on how you would proceed.
