Motor vehicle accidents: 2 injured in crash as traffic slows

Traffic patterns can change at any given moment and the sudden onset of congestion could cause traffic to slow to a crawl or stop altogether. Those who fail to adjust speed to match the change in conditions run the risk of creating a dangerous situation. Motor vehicle accidents resulting from failure to react to traffic congestion can have disastrous ramifications, and a recent incident involving a similar scenario in West Virginia has left two individuals with injuries.

The accident is said to have occurred on a recent Monday as traffic congestion began to build up near a construction site. While many of the details pertaining to how the crash occurred remain unclear, authorities have advised that it involved at least two vehicles. According to reports, a tractor-trailer collided with a second vehicle, leaving the driver of this vehicle with severe injuries.

Emergency officials say that this person was rushed to a medical facility for treatment soon thereafter. They also advised that the driver of the tractor-trailer was also taken to the hospital for medical care. Although the investigation is still underway, police state that failure to slow down for traffic congestion appears to have been a contributing factor.

Motor vehicle accidents involving similar circumstances run the risk of leaving those involved with serious injuries and in search of answers. Following the crash, a person in West Virginia could choose to speak with an attorney for guidance on the available options for legal recourse. An attorney can provide a client with advice on what to expect from the process and assist him or her in pursuing the restitution deserved through a personal injury claim.
