What My Blog is All About

As a Texas attorney practicing for 25 years, I have litigated all manner of wrongful death cases. I use this blog as a place to write opinion / editorial articles on a variety of topics that catch my interest and as a means of sharing news stories relevant to wrongful death accidents.

I think the overwhelming majority of people are unaware just how common these types of accidents are and I hope this blog raises awareness to a rather serious public safety concern. However, this blog is simply a means for me to share my opinions and I would recommend that anyone who is considering seeking legal counsel should contact their family attorney.

Dallas, TX — There was a double-fatal accident reported along U.S. Highway 175 this past Friday afternoon in South Dallas that resulted in a young man facing vehicular manslaughter charges. The accident happened around 1:30 p.m. in the afternoon and the two who died were identified as a 12 or 13-year-old boy and a 13-month-old baby. The driver who was arrested was identified as Kelvin Walker, 23 years old, pictured above.

Police said that Walker had been driving his Range Rover SUV along U.S. 175 last Friday afternoon, headed east, when he lost control near Pine Street and slid into a Honda carrying a family of five.

While the mother and father in the Honda were okay, the accident killed a young teenage boy in the car along with a 13-month-old baby. The police said that Walker was then arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter, but they haven’t concluded their investigation yet. They said he may face more charges, but didn’t elaborate.

More information will be released later, hopefully.
