Egg-throwing prank results in fatal accident in Houston

There often may a number of different elements that contribute to car accidents in Conroe. Thus, assigning responsibility for such incidents may often be difficult. It may not be unreasonable to see liability divided up amongst multiple parties. This may assist accident victims in recovering compensation should they need assistance in paying for the expenses that are often inherent with violent collisions. 

Such a collision recently occurred in Houston. Witnesses say an SUV ran a red light before colliding with a pickup truck. First responders arrived on the scene to find the driver of the truck dead and the occupants of the SUV to be juveniles (the boy driving was reported to only be 14 years old). The teens had been seen throwing eggs from the SUV at other vehicles. The driver of one of the vehicles struck took exception to their actions and began pursuing them (reportedly while brandishing a gun). It was while the SUV was being chased that the boy driving it hit the truck. He has since been arrested and now faces a murder charge. The driver of the pursuing vehicle remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities. 

In cases such as this, any action brought by the families of victims is likely not only intended to help cover the costs they are left with, but also to fill the financial and emotional voids they now face. In instances where the ones responsible are minors (as was the case here), those who entrusted them with their vehicles also might be liable. The simultaneous presence of a criminal case need also not deter accident victims from taking action. Those who wish to do so may first want to consult with an attorney.
