A third passenger, a 17-year-old boy, later died at the hospital.

Because of the negligent decisions that led the Versa to cross into the southbound lanes, the surviving families of those who were killed have a right to file a wrongful death claim against the driver of the Versa. In Texas, a wrongful death claim allows victims to recover many different types of damages, including the death of their deceased family member’s income and financial support, the loss of the deceased family member’s companionship, the loss of an expected inheritance, and mental anguish and suffering.
