Texas head-on crash involves police deputy

A three-car accident that included a police deputy took place on Jan. 12 in Harris County at around 7:00 p.m. The crash took place when a Harris County Precinct 4 deputy constable traveling west near Wilson Road on Will Clayton Parkway was hit head-on by a vehicle heading east.

After the initial collision, another vehicle hit the brakes and tried to slow down to avoid the crash but still struck the deputy's car. The driver of this vehicle was not seriously hurt and did not need to be taken to the hospital. However, the drivers of the other two vehicles were hospitalized for their injuries.

A police representative said that both of the injured drivers were conscious and alert after the wreck. Even though they appeared relatively alright, responders were still worried that one driver could have a closed head wound. This motorist was taken by helicopter to Hermann Hospital. The cars that collided head-on sustained severe damages, but both drivers are expected to make full recoveries. There is no word yet on what caused the accident to occur.

Motorists who have been injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver could seek compensation in civil court. One may wish to file a personal injury claim in order to receive restitution from the responsible party or parties for medical expenses, lost income or emotional pain and suffering. If such a claim is filed, the plaintiff must prove that negligence caused the incident. Negligent behaviors include drunk driving, speeding and texting and driving. One might need an attorney's assistance to gather relevant evidence like witness statements, police reports, photos or video footage, lab tests and cell phone records.
