A rear-end crash involving four vehicles in Liberty Lake injured one person.
According to KHQ-Q6, this crash occurred at 11:15AM on I-90 near the Liberty Lake exit. Eyewitnesses claim one driver of an FJ Cruiser was following too closely behind a Mustang before this crash. As a RAV4 and a Mustang reduced their speed, the FJ Cruiser allegedly hit the Mustang’s rear-end, the Mustang was jolted forward and suddenly hit the RAV 4 as a Jeep Cherokee struck the FJ Cruiser from behind.
The driver of the Mustang was injured in this crash and was taken to the local hospital. Police are still investigating the cause of this rear-end collision.
After a crash involving multiple vehicles
In multiple vehicle accidents, there are multiple drivers, multiple insurance companies to deal with, often possibly multiple injuries and almost always multiple versions of what happened. When injured, sometimes there are multiple parties responsible. If there are serious injuries or fatalities most insurers are going to begin playing the blame game to reduce the amount they will pay the injured.
Common Injuries Related To Rear-End Collisions
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) estimates that about 33 percent of all police-reported traffic crashes are rear-end collisions. This makes rear-end crashes one of the most common accidents in the USA. Roughly 2.5 million Americans will be involved in a rear-end collision every year.
While rear-end collisions aren’t typically fatal, they can cause serious injuries that require extensive medical care. Just a few of the more common injuries a person could get from a rear-end collision include whiplash, spinal fracture, herniated discs, and, in more serious cases, traumatic brain injury.
The car accident king asserts that swift action by an experienced attorney helps preserve evidence, interview witnesses, and begin to pursue those responsible for the incident.
