Mistakes by drivers can cause a chain reaction of damage that endangers themselves and anyone else who happens to be on the road. Impacts can cause severe damage and injury, especially when a car ends up rolling over from the force of the collision.
Safecar.gov finds that while only a small percentage of accidents result in a rollover (2.1%) these accidents accounted for nearly 35% of fatalities in collisions across the nation in a single year.
The consequences of any collision can be severe, and excessive speed can make the outcomes that much more tragic. Victims can suffer serious injuries and even lose their lives after a careless mistake at the wheel.
One Person Killed and Two Injured in South Hill Crash
One person was killed in a devastating crash on the South Hill in Spokane late Wednesday Night. KHQ-TV reported the accident happened on Regal Street near Thurston Avenue around 11 p.m. on October 14, 2020.
Spokane Police say it appears the driver who caused the crash was speeding, ran a stop sign, and struck another car. The first vehicle then continued on through a fence, rolled over several times, and then hit a power pole. The driver was killed.
Police say two juveniles in the second car were injured and taken to the hospital. They are expected to survive.
Help for Victims in Spokane Accidents
Any collision involving high speeds and extreme force can be devastating for the occupants of the vehicles involved. Surviving victims can suddenly find themselves in the hospital, facing a long recovery from injury.
The victims will soon have expensive medical bills coming due all while they may be dealing with lost wages from missed time at work. While victims are trying to heal, it’s natural to worry about the financial burden of a hospital stay and other expenses stemming from an accident that wasn’t their fault.
If another driver caused the crash, then a claim for damages filed against his or her insurance company may be the most effective way to get enough compensation to cover a victim’s entire recovery. This civil lawsuit can be filed with the expectation the insurance company will provide money for all physical and financial hardships the victim experiences in the aftermath of the accident and any hardships expected in the future.
