Second wreck knocks 2 women, 1 infant over overpass

An accident that occurred in Waco, Texas, on Interstate 35 and the South Fourth Street bridge was only described as a fender-bender. While waiting for emergency responders, the two women who were driving the involved vehicles were standing on the shoulder of the interstate.

One of the women, 23, had taken her 8-month-old son out of his car set and was holding him when a pickup struck the two women. All three were knocked off the bridge, falling about 30 feet. The woman holding the baby used her body to create a cocoon of sorts for her son. When emergency responders arrived, they found the two women and the baby lying on Fourth Street.

The baby suffered only a scratch, according to a later report. His mother was not so fortunate. She has had a leg amputated and suffered a shattered pelvis and several internal injuries. She has undergone at least four surgeries so far. The other driver is listed in good condition.

A GoFundMe account has been set up, as has a charitable account at a local bank, to help the young mother and son with expenses.

When someone is injured in a car accident that is no fault of his or her own, the injured party has a right to seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and much more. An attorney can provide advice and guidance on how the civil court process works, as well as how to handle dealing with insurance companies. Be sure to avoid signing anything from the insurance company until it has been reviewed by an attorney.
