Waco man arrested for wreck that causes child's brain injury

A 29-year-old Waco man was indicted on charges of aggravated assault Wednesday, April 26, 2017, for his role in causing serious injuries to a child during a car accident that happened back on July 5, 2016. Investigators looking into the accident were able to obtain the man's cellphone records from that evening which showed he had allegedly been texting at the time the accident occurred.

The male suspect was originally arrested in October of 2016 for his role in causing the accident, which occurred along Lake Shore Drive's 900 block. The accident report shows that the man's pickup truck was traveling west along Lake Shore in the outermost lane when it struck the rear of the 1998 Honda Civic that was carrying the young, 10-year-old victim.

The defendant's F-150 was reportedly moving at a slow rate of speed when the accident occurred. The police report also noted that the Honda was having mechanical difficulties at the time. As a result, it was moving slowly at the time it was struck as well.

As for the young girl, she was transported from the scene of the accident with a fracture to her skull and related brain injury as well as bilateral broken hips. The defendant remains jailed in McLennan County where he is being held without bond pending the resolution of an unrelated immigration matter.

While children show a high propensity to recover from injuries associated with automobile accidents over time, those with injuries such as traumatic brain injuries require significant, intensive therapy if they're going to overcome them at all. Therapies needed to have any chance to recover require not only a time investment on behalf of the parent, but are expensive as well, costs that a skilled Waco car accident attorney can work to recover for victims.
