Car accidents: Texas students injured in serious crash

As the Thanksgiving holidays ended, many students were traveling back to school after visits home or trips with friends. Though the majority of the students likely made their trips without incident, other individuals may not have been so lucky. Many car accidents can take place during holiday travel, and some parties may suffer injuries after being involved in a crash.

It was recently reported that five students at Texas A&M were involved in a serious collision while on their way back to school. The report indicated that the vehicle that the students were in was traveling west when a pickup truck failed to stay in its designated lane. The truck veered over the center line and crashed into the students' vehicle.

Due to the force of the impact, two students had to be extracted from the vehicle by emergency crews. It was reported that it took approximately half an hour before all the individuals were out of the vehicle. Two of the passengers were considered to be in critical condition and the driver was listed at stable. The conditions of the other two students were not reported. At this time, the driver of the truck has not been charged.

Serious car accidents can easily lead to fatal injuries, and it could be considered lucky that none of the individuals suffered fatal injuries in the Texas event. However, the students could face considerable setbacks as they are treated for their injuries. Medical expenses could accumulate and their studies could be negatively affected as they recover. As a result, they may wish to consider filing personal injury claims against the driver deemed at fault in order to work toward obtaining monetary restitution.
