Abbie Cooley Killed in Sulphur Springs Multi-Vehicle Crash on Interstate 30

Sulphur Springs, Texas (October 24, 2020) – A 4-year-old girl was killed last week Monday in a multi-vehicle crash in Sulphur Springs, according to the Texas DPS.

The fatal crash happened on October 12, on Interstate 30.

Authorities said Jason Cooley was returning home to Lewisville from Arkansas in his Honda Civic when he approached a construction zone on I-30 and was rear-ended by a westbound 2010 Ford F-150.

The force of the impact caused the Civic to hit a Honda Pilot, which in turn struck the caravan.

Jason was taken to a Sulphur Springs hospital for treatment. Her daughter, Abbie Cooley, 4, was airlifted to Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, where she was later pronounced dead.

A funding page has been created by the family to help with funeral and other costs.

The crash remains under investigation.

We pass our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Abbie Cooley.

Who May Make a Wrongful Death Claim in Texas?

A wrongful death claim for a family member may be brought by spouses, children, or parents. The State of Texas also allows the estate of the deceased to bring a survival action to recover for past medical expenses and conscious pain and suffering, as well as other non-economic damages which the deceased may have suffered before death. Texas does not permit brothers, sisters, cousins, or grandparents to assert any claims for the death of a family member.

Wrongful death claims require an attorney who understands the complexity of the damages caused by a significant loss. The lawyer representing the client has the responsibility to hire the necessary experts to help prove the case.
