Several Motorists Badly Injured
At least two people suffered very serious injuries as a result of paramedics and the fire department providing assistance after also being called to the scene.
The injured parties were rushed to a trauma center at one of the hospitals nearby.
No further details have been disclosed as the intersection remained shut down for at least an hour following the incident.

A forensic examination of both vehicles, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the cause the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, victims involved in an accident and not found liable are entitled to personal injury lawsuit against the driver pending the results of the investigation. Injured victims may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills and pain and suffering.
