Elderly Woman Struck Inside Vehicle and Hospitalized
At least one person was trapped inside their vehicle and injured. The victim was described as an elderly woman who was assisted by fire department personnel before being transported by ambulance to a hospital.
No information or details were provided on the cause of the collision and what exactly transpired.
Authorities remained present at the scene for over two hours collecting evidence for their investigation.
A forensic examination of both vehicles, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the cause of 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.
