Houston, TX (February 04, 2021) - A chain-reaction collision between three vehicles proved tragically fatal for one of the drivers involved on Wednesday, February 3rd.
Harris County Deputies stated that the accident took place in the 12000 block of Lockwood Drive at about 11:00 p.m.
Reports show that a Cadillac and a Honda crashed into one another in a minor fender-bender in the southbound lane of Lockwood Drive.
As the driver of the Cadillac driver exited his vehicle, he was struck by a southbound Mercedes and then pinned under the vehicle.
He was airlifted to a trauma center for emergency medical treatment but died a short while later.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
Pedestrian Fatalities in Houston
Each year, over 7,500 pedestrians suffer injuries in car accidents throughout Texas. The fact that pedestrians are without protections such as roll bars and airbags makes them more susceptible to serious and fatal injuries.
Most pedestrian victims endure injuries that force them to have emergency surgery and suffer through months of rehabilitation. Even though we hope that all victims will be able to fully heal from their injuries, this is rarely the case. In reality, car accidents are responsible for the deaths of around 3,600 people every year. Approximately 17% of these fatal victims are pedestrians.
When pedestrians lose their lives in accidents, they often leave behind friends and family members who are devastated by their sudden and unexpected loss. Although there are very few things worse than the loss of a loved one, knowing that they lost their life as a result of another person’s negligence makes the situation even more emotional. Although money cannot replace the lives of those taken away so suddenly, having the financial resources necessary to move forward after a loss can help alleviate some of the stress families endure. Working with a responsive and effective wrongful death attorney in Houston can help to ensure you are in the best position possible after experiencing the tragic loss of a loved one.
