Texas hit and run causes deaths of two teenaged sisters

It is difficult enough for families in Texas to face losing one family member as the result of a car crash; to lose two at the same time may be almost unbearable. Nevertheless, that is what a family from Frisco, Texas, is going through at this very moment due to a crash that took the lives of two sisters, both teenagers, last Saturday. Authorities arrested a 61-year-old man whom they claim was responsible for the crash and who allegedly left the scene following the collision. 

The accident occurred in Kyle, Texas, at the point where the access road to Interstate 35 intersects with Windy Hill Road. The sedan in which the two girls were riding contained three other occupants: their younger sister, their father and a friend of the family. It is not clear who was driving the sedan when a pickup collided with it, nor is the current condition of the other three occupants available, although authorities confirm that each underwent transportation to the hospital for evaluation.

Currently, the pickup driver arrested in relation to the crash is in custody with a $250,000 bond. He has a history of two prior arrests for driving while intoxicated. Toxicology results are pending at this time, but the driver could face additional charges if they come back positive. As of now, he faces three counts of accident involving injury and two counts of accident involving death. According to authorities, they apprehended him after he allegedly fled the scene, but did not elaborate as to what criteria they used to identify him.

The younger of the two sisters was 16, while the other was 18. Both were students at Wakeland High School, where counselors are available to help students process their feelings about the accident. 

Gaining peace and closure through legal action may help family members to cope after losing loved ones in a car accident. To that end, it may be helpful for them to contact an attorney.
