Toddler and dad killed in fiery I-30 crash

The family was on their way home to Missouri after visiting relatives in the Dallas area, said Garland police.
A young Missouri father and his two-year-old son were killed in a fiery collision in Garland late Monday night on Interstate 30. A prior accident had backed up traffic, forcing the Shumpert family’s vehicle to slow down, when a larger SUV crashed into the family’s vehicle. Laura Shumpert has been taken to Parkland Hospital for medical treatment; her condition has not been reported. Her husband, Jarred Schumpert, 28, and 2-year-old son Lyndon were killed in the fiery collision. The driver that caused the crash was taken to Baylor in Dallas, and is expected to recover. Police say alcohol was not a factor, but speeding was. A grand jury will decide if charges should be filed against the driver. 

What every family needs to know about Dallas wrongful death claims

When someone is killed in a car, truck, bicycle, pedestrian, or other kind of accident, family members left behind must cope with the tragedy as best they can. Many important decisions need to be made, and a wrongful death claim needs to be filed.

In Dallas, a claim can be filed only by specific family members, but there are strict requirements and deadlines that must be met. It is critical to talk with a Dallas wrongful death attorney to get the information and advice needed to move forward.

John, how is your remark meant to be helpful or kind? You made someone's death about you. I realize you are probably a weak insecure person but that is not the fault of others.

I hope this family finds peace.
