Car accidents are sometimes an extremely traumatic experience for those involved, but if someone dies because of injuries from the accident, it can leave all other victims with even more emotional pain. Normally, victims can focus on making a full physical recovery in a timely manner, but emotional pain can prevent the healing process and can impact an individual's life for an extended period of time. Unfortunately, one woman unexpectedly died after a car accident in Alaska.
The original accident took place on the evening of October 17 at around 7:30 p.m. and involved an SUV and a taxi cab. The two vehicles collided in an intersection, which then sent two women and two children -- who were occupying the taxi -- to the hospital. Emergency personnel originally thought that the injuries suffered by the victims were not life-threatening.
