A car accident involving two vehicles just outside of Lake Charles last week left one teenager dead and two others in serious condition at a hospital. The driver who is believed at-fault in the accident was one of the people injured along with another passenger. A third passenger in her car was the person killed, and authorities believe the driver may have been impaired at the time.
These types of accidents are usually thoroughly investigated. However, sometimes the families of wrongful death victims in Lake Charles have to wait for answers, especially if the case that resulted in a death prompts criminal charges.
