Motor vehicle accidents: Crash at intersection injures 2, kills 1

Even with the implementation of traffic signals and signs, intersections remain a hot spot for dangerous collisions. Many motor vehicle accidents occur when one driver fails to adhere to these indicators, and the ramifications of such negligence can be devastating. A recent accident at an intersection in West Virginia has left two individuals with injuries, while another reportedly died shortly after.

According to authorities, the incident took place around 6 p.m. on a recent Saturday evening, when two vehicles collided at an intersection near an interstate on ramp. Police have advised that one of the vehicles was attempting to make a left turn when it was struck by a nearby truck. Both drivers were transported to the hospital for treatment shortly after the incident. One of the vehicles was also carrying a passenger, who was unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene.

Intersections have traffic lights or stop signs to assist with the flow of traffic and increase driver safety. However, in some cases, a driver may choose to ignore or disobey these precautions, which can happen for a variety of reasons. Should an individual suffer serious harm due to the negligence of another party, he or she may wish to pursue restitution, but the process can be complex.

Victims who suffer serious harm or loss in dangerous motor vehicle accidents may be left in search of answers or justice, but they might be uncertain where to turn for help. By speaking with an attorney, a client in West Virginia could obtain assistance in navigating the process. An attorney can evaluate the circumstances surrounding the incident and assist a client in pursuing the full amount of restitution possible through whatever means are appropriate for the situation.
