Motor vehicle accidents: 2 airlifted to hospital after collision

It could take little more than a moment of distraction for a driver to lose control of a vehicle and veer into oncoming lanes. Motor vehicle accidents that occur after a vehicle shifts into the wrong lane of traffic run the unfortunate risk of placing the safety and well-being of everyone nearby in jeopardy. As many as two individuals were airlifted to a medical facility following a recent head-on crash that took place in West Virginia.

According to reports, the accident occurred at around 3:45 p.m. on a recent Thursday. Law enforcements agents advised that witnesses of the crash say it occurred when, for unknown reasons, a van suddenly shifted into the opposite lane of traffic. The van reportedly proceeded to collide head-on with an oncoming vehicle soon thereafter.

Authorities advised that both drivers suffered serious injuries in the crash and that both were airlifted to a nearby hospital for medical care. They have also advised that an investigation into the incident remains underway. However, no further information was provided as to why the driver of the van might have lost control and shifted into the oncoming lane.

With the extensive costs of medical care and the likelihood of a long recovery process, those who suffer serious harm in motor vehicle accidents may face a variety of challenges. Those who wish to gain insight into their available legal avenues following a similar circumstance could choose to speak with an attorney early on for guidance. An attorney can evaluate the incident and assist a client in West Virginia in pursuing the restitution entitled through a personal injury claim.
