As per the article, two men in the Buick suffered moderate injuries and were taken by family members to a local hospital for treatment. Officials have not yet released the names of the victims at this time.
Meanwhile, the uninjured Mustang driver allegedly tried to evade. She may be charged of fleeing the scene of an accident, officials said.
Based on this news report, it remained unclear if the Mustang driver will be held liable for the injuries sustained by the two victims. There are still several factors that require answers in order to determine the liability—was any of the involved motorist under the influence of alcohol or drugs when the crash took place? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Did any of the drivers run a stop sign or a red light?
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, victims have the right to pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. Victims are entitled to a compensation for damages including hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, property damage and other losses.
