It goes without saying that no person wants to be involved in a traffic accident. Unfortunately, it seems serious and fatal car accidents are on the rise in the state of Kentucky. Car accidents not only affect those who are involved in the crash, the shock and aftermath of a fatal or serious crash can affect families, friends and entire communities. Most accidents are completely unpredictable and can happen any place at any time.
A tragic accident in Jessamine sent four people to the hospital and left a driver dead. The crash happened on Ky. 169 during the nighttime hours. According to reports, an SUV ran off the road onto the shoulder. Apparently, the driver of the SUV overcorrected, causing the vehicle to travel into oncoming traffic.
Reports said the SUV violently collided head-on with a pickup truck. Two occupants of the pickup truck and two passengers in the SUV were rushed to a hospital with significant injuries, authorities said. Tragically, first responders said the female driver of the SUV died at the scene of the crash. Reportedly, she and the two passengers in the SUV were students at a local seminary.
Unfortunately, almost every driver will be involved in an accident at some point in his or her life. Those in Kentucky who have suffered injuries or the loss of loved ones in car accidents may want to consider discussions with an experienced and knowledgeable attorney. A successfully litigated claim could result in much-needed compensation to help families recover any monetary losses that may have occurred due to a tragic accident.
