Pedestrian Accident Kills One, Seriously Injures Another

Tuesday night, two men were walking on the side of U.S. Highway 75 service road when they were struck by a a driver whom police believe was drunk. One of the two men died of his injuries; the other is in serious condition at Parkland Memorial Hospital.

The driver of the offending vehicle, Alicia Susanna Robles, 27, has been charged with intoxication assault and intoxication manslaughter for the pedestrian accident. These are both felony crimes. She was booked at Collin County Jail on a $75,000 bail.

The family of the deceased man can hire a Dallas personal injury lawyer to represent a civil suit against Robles if they so choose.  Wrongful death claims generally seek compensation for funeral costs, lost wages and benefits and loss of companionship. The other man who was hit may also file a claim against her in order to recoup damages from medical bills and other expenses.
