Four-vehicle crash involving a truck seriously injures three
The path to recovery after an accident can be lengthy and emotional. A truck accident can result in severe damages and serious injuries. These events not only cause financial burdens but also life altering injuries. Truck accidents can cause massive accidents due to the size of the vehicle and the damage the impact from the truck can create.
Police were dispatched to an accident that resulted in three people being seriously injured. The accident involved four vehicles including a tractor-trailer. The crash happened in the afternoon at around 1:30 p.m. Witnesses have purported that they saw the tractor-trailer that was eastbound strike the rear of a Ford Mustang. This caused the Mustang to cross into the westbound lanes crashing with a Toyota nearly head on. The Toyota was then struck in the back by a pick-up truck. The driver and passenger of the Mustang were reported to be in critical condition and the driver of the Toyota was seriously injured. Both the driver of the tractor-trailer and the pick-up truck were not injured in the multi-vehicle crash.
The investigation of this four-vehicle crash is still ongoing. Police have not determined the cause of the collision at this time. A person injured in an accident like this might be able to file a personal injury claim. Not only will this help cover any medical and rehabilitation costs, but it could also cover lost wages, damages and pain and suffering.
A multi-vehicle crash that involves a truck can result in much damage as well as serious injuries. Those injured in the collision may have a long road to recovery as well as financial burdens as a result of the accident. The investigation of the incident is important because it could result in compensation that could help cover the expenses incurred from the incident.
