Alaska car accident leaves 1 with injuries

Every time a passenger gets into a vehicle with a driver, he or she is not only putting his or her life in the driver's hands but also in the hands of other drivers as well. The lack of control that a passenger has when riding in a vehicle means that he or she is vulnerable to every mistake that a nearby driver makes and has no way of counteracting that mistake. Unfortunately, a car accident in Alaska recently left the passenger in one of the vehicles injured.

The accident took place on Feb. 22 shortly before 1:30 p.m. and involved two vehicles. The accident occurred after a driver lost control of his vehicle, crossed over the center line into oncoming traffic and hit another driver head on. This resulted in the passenger of the second vehicle being airlifted to the hospital.

The injuries sustained by the passenger were not life-threatening, but the current condition of the victim is unknown at this time. The condition of the two drivers was not stated. The driver who crossed the center line was cited for causing the accident.

Regardless of whether or not the driver is formally charged for causing the car accident in Alaska, the injured victim may have the right to seek monetary compensation for his or her injuries. Compensation could be used to pay for medical bills that the victim received because of the accident. Hopefully, this could relieve some of the stress that new bills often bring and allow the victim to focus on healing and returning to his or her normal routine.
