Texas auto accident lawyers know that auto-pedestrian injuries can be catastrophic. In recent weeks, there have been several accidents of this type in the Houston area, including a 67-year-old woman who was killed when struck by a car while walking her dogs.

The woman struck by the car  was walking down D’Amico street when she was struck and died instantly from the impact. The drive had just come to a halt at a stop sign, then stepped on the gas, according to police reports. It was unclear whether the driver would face charges or citations.

In another accident, an elderly man who was sweeping outside a Rice Village restaurant was struck  by a vehicle that was leaving a nearby parking spot. The worker fell and injured his hip. He was taken to the hospital and was reported to be in stable condition. Authorities said there would likely be no charges filed against the driver, who stayed on the scene.
