Chesapeake Car Crash Injury Lawyer Report – Woman is Killed in Head-On Wreck in West Virginia
Head-on collisions are one of the most serious types of accidents we deal with as experienced Chesapeake auto accident injury lawyers
They combine the force of two vehicles and often occur when at least one driver has lost control and crossed a line, often a result of speeding.
In Wood County, West Virginia (WV) a head-on collision claimed the life of a 47-year-old woman on August 27, 2012.
Newsandsentinel.com reported a Volkswagen Beetle heading eastbound hit a vehicle heading westbound just east of Kanawha, WV on a curve approximately two miles away from Kanawha Elementary School.
Police said a 1999 Ford Explorer was traveling westbound on W.Va. 47 when the driver of the SUV lost control. The driver veered back into roadway and struck the Beetle.
Two people from each vehicle were also treated for injuries in a local hospital. Bad weather may have been a factor in this accident.
My thoughts are with the family of the dead woman in the wake of this accident.
When a driver is to blame for losing control of a vehicle a personal injury or a wrongful death lawsuit can be brought against the at-fault driver’s insurance policy.
The leading causes of fatal auto accidents are drunk driving and distracted driving, but a split-second lapse of judgment can have fatal consequences, resulting in untold emotional suffering and financial loss. Loss of life from a preventable accident is a terrible tragedy for those left behind.
