LaTonya Earl Killed in Northeast Harris County Two-Vehicle Crash on Old Humble Road near Beltway 8

Harris County, Texas (February 14, 2020) – Two people were killed in a head-on collision Friday morning in northeast Harris County, according to the authorities.

The fatal crash happened around 5:30 a.m. in the 15400 block of Old Humble Road, just north of Beltway 8.

Deputies said a cement truck had just left a cement mixing plant nearby and had made a U-turn on Old Humble Road when the truck’s drum started dumping wet cement onto the roadway. That is when a northbound vehicle hit the wet cement on the road, and the driver lost control, crossed the median, and crashed head-on into a southbound vehicle.

LaTonya Earl, a choir director, who was one of the drivers, was declared dead at the scene. The other driver was also declared dead at the scene.

The crash remains under investigation.

We pass our sincere condolences to the family and friends of LaTonya Earl.

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.
