Anyone who has any degree of experience behind the wheel understands that all it takes is a loss of focus for even a fraction of a second for an otherwise forgettable drive to turn into a total disaster. While police have not yet identified a specific cause of a single-vehicle Dallas car accident that killed one teen and critically injured another, they are investigating what could have led the vehicle involved to drift off the road.
According to the authorities, this single-vehicle Dallas car accident occurred at 5:40 a.m. on Saturday. A 19-year-old male driver was moving in a westbound direction on Interstate 20 in a 1994 Lexus when the vehicle began to drift off the road. It went airborne and crash-landed in Fish Creek. One 18-year-old passenger was killed in the crash and another 18-year-old passenger was critically injured. The names of those involved were not released.

While more investigation would be helpful in understanding what could have specifically caused this Dallas car accident if it turns out that the driver was at fault it could lead to the filing of a Texas wrongful death lawsuit by the family of the person who was killed. The person who was critically injured could also file a Texas personal injury lawsuit, and successful claims would likely lead to damages awards that compensate the plaintiffs for their losses.
