University student killed in tragic 3-vehicle crash

A tragic motor vehicle crash has left a 21-year-old student of Texas A&M dead. The crash happened on a recent Monday and involved three vehicles on Harvey Mitchell Parkway.

The young woman who died was riding as a passenger in a vehicle that had stopped southbound at a red light. The car was waiting to make a left turn at approximately 5:45 p.m. Police allege that when the car moved forward to make the left turn, another northbound vehicle crashed into the passenger side. The other vehicle had the green light, police said. The force of the collision caused the first vehicle to hit a third, a sport utility vehicle.

When emergency responders arrived on scene, the young woman was unconscious. They rushed her to a local medical facility, but doctors were unable to save her and they pronounced her dead at the hospital. The driver of the car that made the left turn and the driver of the sport utility vehicle also required medical care, but their injuries were not life-threatening and they were later released.

Police cited the driver of the car that made the left turn with "failure to yield to right-of-way." Police do not suspect that drugs or alcohol were to blame for the crash. Authorities are continuing to investigate the incident.

This tragic incident will likely send shockwaves throughout the community, and the young woman's close family members may never fully recover from her loss. Whenever someone dies due to the fault of a negligent, unlawful or reckless action of a motor vehicle driver, close family members of the deceased may be able to pursue a wrongful death action to seek financial damages in court.
