Samantha Rogers 17 and Delaney Mancil 15 both of Alvord were killed in a chain-reaction auto accident that occurred on Thursday Nov. 11 around 7 p.m. on U.S. Highway 380 near Denton Texas. The multiple car wreck began when an eastbound Dodge Ram crossed the center line and hit an oncoming GMC pickup. The GMC then crossed into the eastbound lane and side-swiped a 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis then struck the 2007 Pontiac G5 that Rogers was driving with Mancil as a passenger. The teenagers were pronounced dead at the Scene of the Accident. Others involved in the accident were treated for minor injuries. Investigators do not currently know what caused the Dodge to cross into oncoming traffic.

Although the driver apparently responsible for causing this tragic chain-reaction wreck to occur did not strike the victims car directly Texas law will still hold that person accountable for their negligence since the negligent driver will be said to have been a proximate cause of the accident. Had that person not crossed the center line this terrible accident would not have occurred. Furthermore if alcohol may have played a role in this accident Texas dram shop law can hold an alcohol-serving establishment accountable for any negligence they may have shown that could have contributed to this accident. The families that have lost loved ones may consider having an independent investigation conducted should they not be able to receive the answers theyre looking for so that all liable parties can be identified and held accountable for their negligence resulting in this tragic accident.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
