Car accident on Kentucky 770 leaves 1 dead

It is tragic when a distracted driver causes a car accident that is fatal. Not only has someone lost their life due to the negligence of another driver, but a family is left grieving and has to suffer through the loss for the rest of their lives. This is sadly the case for a male passenger who was recently killed in a head-on collision that involved two vehicles on Kentucky 770.

One of the drivers has been cited for driving with a DUI-suspended license and with no insurance or registration plates. The other driver may have sustained injuries but did not want treatment. The cause of the accident is still being investigated at this time.

Although the cause of the accident is not known yet, negligence of another is often times the cause of an accident. Drivers can become distracted easily or pose a risk to other drivers while driving under the influence. If the death is the fault of another, it is considered a wrongful death.

This story is a tragic example of what can happen on the road in our state. Not only are drivers at risk, but passengers are, as well. Hardly anyone ever believes they will be involved in a serious car accident. When a car accident leads to the death of a loved one, it is an even greater shock.

The loss of a loved one is difficult for anyone to have to go through, especially if it is due to something unexpected, such as a car accident. The medical and funeral expenses can also become overwhelming. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit can allow you to fight for your loved one who is no longer here to defend himself or herself. This may be a difficult time for you, but you do not have to deal with the effects of a serious crash alone.
