Four Are Critically Injured In Lynchburg, VA Wreck
When cars cross center lanes, they are often involved in head-on collisions, which is the most serious kind of collision I see as an experienced Suffolk, VA accident injury lawyer.
In Lynchburg, Virginia (VA) on July 15, 2012, a two-car collision caused by driver crossing a center lane, left four people with critical injuries. The serious injury accident took place on Boonsboro Road, Lynchburg, abc13 reported.
The Lynchburg Police Department said the driver of a Buick Century was heading north on Boonsboro Road when the car crossed a center lane and hit a Ford Windstar van traveling south head-on.
Seven people were taken to the hospital in the wake of the accident.
The TV station reported that Milton Brown, 75, the driver of the Buick, is in critical condition. A 16-year-old passenger in the car is in stable condition.
Kim Hartless, 37, the driver of the Windstar is in stable condition. Passengers John Hartless, 39, and Jacob Hartless, 18, are listed as being in a critical condition. A 5-year-old boy was airlifted to the University of Virginia for treatment. He is in a critical condition. Another 17-year-old passenger is in stable condition.
It’s unclear what caused this driver to cross a center line. My thoughts are with the victims of this crash and I wish them a speedy recovery.
