Grapevine, TX (3/2/2020) – A 51-year-old woman is now dead after a driver ran a red light Saturday morning.
The accident happened around 9:50 a.m. at the intersection of Hall Johnson and William D. Tate when a red light lunner crashed into Elvira Soreque-Bautista. Bautista’s vehicle flipped on impact and landed next to a northbound frontage road.
Bautista was transported to a hospital where she later died from her injuries.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
Because of the negligent decisions to run through a red light, the surviving family of Bautista have a right to file a wrongful death claim against the red light runner. 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.
