New Caney, Texas (February 26, 2021) – A mother was killed, and five other people were injured Thursday night after a tire flew off a pickup truck and crashed into a vehicle in New Caney, according to authorities.

The deadly accident happened around 7:00 p.m., February 25, on Interstate 69, about 30 miles north of Houston.

After the tire struck the windshield, the southbound pickup rear-ended another vehicle that was occupied by a father and his three children.

“When a person has suffered a grave personal injury in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, the most overwhelming emotion they feel is a sense of injustice. They often ask how such a life-altering event could have happened to them,” attorney Joel A. Gordon said. “The next question usually is, who can help me?” Mr. Gordon added.

A legal advocate can represent an injury victim or the family of a deceased victim. The attorney will file a claim on behalf of the victim and will have the responsibility of citing existing codes, laws or statutes which were violated.
