Texas Road Rage Accident Kills Innocent Driver, Injures Passenger
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 30-Sep-2013
A road rage accident in Texas between a feuding husband and wife left the driver and passenger of an uninvolved vehicle with critical injuries, killing the driver of that vehicle, police reported.
The innocent driver who was killed in the road rage car accident was identified as Tania Vercher, a resident of Baytown. Her son, whose name was not yet released, was transported to an area hospital with critical injuries, emergency authorities noted.
The head-on collision took place on FM 1942 by Garth Rd. on Sunday morning, police said. The collision was sparked when the driver of a pickup truck attempted to block his wife’s vehicle as a result of a dispute between the couple, officials said.
Police took a blood sample from the man who sparked the accident with his pickup truck and charges against him are pending those results.
In recent years, road rage accidents in the Houston region have been blamed for countless injuries and serious Texas car accidents. In five years alone, the Texas Department of Transportation reported as many as 900 car accidents tied to road rage just in the Houston area. While auto accidents in Texas were down in 2012 car accident statistics, road rage continues to be a serious problem plaguing Texas drivers and passengers and resulting in preventable car wrecks.
In some situations, road rage accidents may be provoked when one or multiple vehicles pull over while other incidents may be prompted by drivers who actually use their vehicle as a weapon or a means to hurt another driver or passenger or cause damage to another vehicle.
