Houston, TX (9/10/2020) – A man is now dead after a car racing incident turned deadly on Thursday.
The incident happened on Cutten Road near Cypress Creek Parkway in northwest Harris County around 6:45 p.m. Jarrod Mikel, 30, was racing his Dodge Charger with another car when it collided into the back of a Ford F-150 and pushed it into a building pillar.
The driver of the Ford, 36-year-old Fidel Juarez, was killed.
Mikel and his passenger were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Mikel is facing several charges and could face up to 20 years in prison. The second driver has not been found as of yet.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
Hiring a Wrongful Death Lawyer
The surviving family of the victim may be liable to a wrongful death claim due to the manner in which he died in the accident. Street racing crashes are incidents that end up in tragedy and should never be conducted in the first place.
If an insurance company is making it difficult to receive payment of your claim, or a person’s insurance is substantial, hiring a lawyer is in your best interest. If your situation requires a lawyer, it’s best to hire one as soon as possible. When you allow a lawyer to take control of your claim, your chance of fair treatment will increase significantly since legal professionals know the logistics of insurance policies and other matters that non-legal professionals aren’t aware of.
If you or a loved one were involved in a car accident, it is important to contact a legal expert to help you evaluate your options. Call Houston auto accident attorneys Sutliff & Stout at (713) 405-1263 or send us an email to discuss your car accident injury case.
