Motor vehicle accidents: Head-on crash injures 2 in West Virginia

While all collisions have the potential to cause serious harm to everyone involved, those that occur when a driver enters the opposite lane have a higher chance of ending in disaster. Head-on motor vehicle accidents can occur in the blink of an eye and leave drivers will little time to react, and the results of these incidents can be devastating. Two individuals were rushed to the hospital following a recent head-on collision that took place in West Virginia.

The accident reportedly took place on a recent Sunday at around 2:30 p.m. According to authorities, the collision occurred when a southbound driver suddenly crossed into oncoming lanes and struck two other vehicles. The drivers of both the second and third were both rushed to the hospital for treatment of injuries, one of whom had to be airlifted from the scene.

Although an investigation is underway, many of the details concerning how the accident occurred remain unclear. However, authorities have advised that the driver who caused the collision has been arrested on suspicion of operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs. Those who drive while impaired are inherently less capable of safely operating a vehicle, and they often place the safety of others nearby at risk in the process.

Those who suffer serious injuries in motor vehicle accidents involving impaired drivers may wish to know more about the next steps to take to pursue accountability. Since the civil justice system can be challenging to navigate alone, a person in West Virginia could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney early on. An attorney can help a client pursue the full amount of restitution entitled through a personal injury lawsuit.
