Multi-vehicle accident has fatal consequences

Every year in Kentucky, car accidents claim countless lives. When one person errs, their mistake can endanger everyone else around them, inside and outside their vehicle. This can be caused by any number of factors, from excessive speed or intoxication to distracted driving or simply bad weather conditions. The sad fact is that car accidents are a common tragedy and many people have their lives turned upside-down as a result.

In one such case, a three-car accident led to the death of one person. The identity and even the gender of the victim could not be determined at the scene due to the extent of their injuries. It is believed that the crash occurred when two cars hit a third after allegedly crossing the road's median.

One car flipped onto its roof while the other two caught fire, badly burning the victim. Four other people are reported to have been taken to hospitals, although the severity of their conditions was not known. The incident closed the road for several hours afterward while teams worked to clear up the scene. Police are continuing to investigate in order to more accurately reconstruct the event.

Sadly events like this are all too frequent and often have similarly devastating consequences. If you or a loved one have been harmed in a car accident, you may wonder where to turn. Medical bills can be expensive and you may even find yourself unable to return to work. An attorney could be helpful at this difficult time as he or she can help you understand the circumstances of your crash and advise you on whether you can take legal action.
