Motor vehicle accidents: 1 injured when car crashes into home

Most individuals may feel they are safe and out of harm's way as they stand in the kitchen and go about daily household chores. However, those who reside next to a busy street might not be fully aware of the dangers nearby, as motor vehicle accidents in which a car veers off the road and strikes a home can have disastrous outcomes. A recent incident that took place under similar circumstances in West Virginia has reportedly left one person with severe injuries and another facing DUI charges.

Law enforcement agents say they received reports of the crash on a recent Wednesday evening. According to initial investigations, a woman was standing in the kitchen of her home when a vehicle suddenly veered off course and struck the building. The impact of the crash forced a refrigerator to hit the woman and knock her into a nearby door, leaving her with severe injuries.

Authorities also assert that the driver who caused the crash attempted to flee the scene in another vehicle. While speaking with her, police say she appeared to be under the influence and say she admitted to using drugs prior to getting behind the wheel. They have also advised that she is currently facing numerous charges in relation to the incident.

Motor vehicle accidents involving impaired drivers run the unfortunate risk of placing the safety of everyone involved in danger. Those who suffer harm due to such negligence may wish to gain insight into their available legal avenues, but they might be uncertain where to turn for guidance on how best to handle the situation. Fortunately, there are attorneys who can examine the incident and assist a person in West Virginia in pursuing the restitution deserved through a personal injury claim.
