An investigation of this accident will prove essential due to the fact that a pedestrian was fatally struck in an auto-pedestrian accident. Due to the nature of the incident, the family of the victim is entitled to a wrongful death claim against the driver of the vehicle. According to Texas law, a pedestrian has the right of way when crossing an intersection at a crosswalk. Pending the results of the investigation, if it is found that the pedestrian was crossing the street when the vehicle came by, the right to receive a claim is substantial.
