My question involves a traffic accident in the State of: Texas
My daughter was with a friend "practicing" in her friend's car, in a 200 acre city park (with road ways). Another vehicle was speeding in the other direction... the car in front of them pulled over to get out of the way, by the time they saw the vehicle they had to swerve to miss them and eneded up in a ditch and hitting a tree on the oppiosite side of the road. The police report says they ended up over 60 feet from where they intially turned to miss the vehicle. The vehicle that ran them off the road took off! The witnesses stayed and called 911. The girls went to the ER, one with minor injuries, the other spent 2 days in ICU. My daughter received tickets for driving without a license and failure to control speed. My questions (after all that) are what are the laws about driving in a park, in Texas, and can she get a failure to control speed ticket, when somebody else ran them off the road? They were behind someone else that pulled over, so they weren't going any faster than the peopole in front of them... the actual speed is still up for debate, but the girls did admit to hitting the gas, instead of the brake, after swerving to miss the other car/truck.
