This Tuesday, just before 7am, an accident that involved three cars and several people occurred on Spencer Highway in Pasadena, Texas. An unidentified woman was driving a white Mustang on the highway with a young boy in the back seat and a six-year-old boy in the front seat. Initially, the woman hit a red sedan, driven by a mother taking her young daughter to school. The Mustang continued without stopping, veered into oncoming traffic and hit a pickup truck head-on. Unfortunately, the woman in question was seriously injured with an open head wound and several broken bones. The boy in the front seat of her car lost his arm when it was severed in the accident and there is a chance it may still be reattached. The other boy fortunately did not sustain life-threatening injuries.
The Pasadena Police Department are investigating this accident to verify whether the driver of the Mustang was impaired, had a medical condition or if her car had a mechanical failure that caused her to lose control of her car. Currently, it is unknown whether the young boy in the front seat was wearing a seat belt. In Texas, the law does not prevent young children from riding in the front seat but state officials encourage parents and guardians to have to their children sit in the back while wearing a seat belt or properly seated in a child safety seat.
Although it is not obvious what caused the driver of the Mustang to drive into two cars, an investigation will hopefully shed light on what occurred on Tuesday morning. In this situation, it may be pertinent to pursue a civil case, depending on the results that the Pasadena Police Department finds.
