An accident on May 16 resulted the deaths of two 20-year-old men in Murphy.
Police initially thought that the accident only involved one vehicle and
occurred after the Nissan sedan that three men were in at the time swerved
out of control at FM 544 and Brand Road. However, authorities now believe
that another vehicle may have been involved and that road rage may be
to blame for the
Police believe that both drivers involved in the crash were driving at
high speeds and weaving in and out traffic. At one point, both the victim's
sedan and the suspect's Mitsubishi attempted to pass each other at
the same time. The vehicles got very close to one another, which prompted
the Nissan driver to attempt to get away from the other car. This led
to the Nissan going out of control and crashing, and police do not believe
that the vehicles ever physically touched.
Witnesses of the
auto accident came forward with information that led to the arrest of the 21-year-old
Mitsubishi driver. That man has been charged with two counts of criminally
negligent homicide and one count of accident involving injury since the
third person in the Nissan survived the accident and was hospitalized
in critical condition.
After fatal car accidents, the families of the victims often face many
hardships. Among them is the financial impact that such losses can have
on them. While financial compensation may not bring their loved ones back
or reduce the emotional toll, it may help reduce the strain by reducing
financial worries while they try to recover emotionally. An attorney could
help these victims determine what fair compensation for their losses may
be and seek it in court.
