Mother’s Day Boating Accident in Texas

A terrible accident occurred on the Trinity River near the Chambers-Liberty County line in Texas: A father from Daytona was driving his boat with his family on Mother’s day when tragedy struck. He was pulling his 3 children in an inner tube. As the boat was rounding a turn, it hit a partially submerged tree throwing the 3 children from the tube and 1 woman from the boat.

The family’s 16-year old daughter was taken to a local area hospital as a result of her serious injuries. She was then airlifted to the Memorial Hermann Hospital where she later died as a result of the crash.

Another family member was also treated for his injures, underwent surgery and is said to be in a stable condition. No other injuries have been reported and little is still known about the cause of the accident; police are investigating.

This is a terrible tragedy and our condolences go out to family members involved in the accident and anyone else that’s suffering as a result of the crash. Our law firm has been handling these types of maritime claims for over 30 years.
