Car accident in Alaska leaves passenger injured

Car accidents that injure victims who are not in control of the vehicle can be tragic enough, but if the crash is caused by the driver being intoxicated, it can be even harder on the victims. Driving under the influence of alcohol is never a good excuse for an accident, especially if the accident injures multiple people. Unfortunately, one car accident in Alaska may have been caused by alcohol.

The accident took place on the night of June 8 at around 11 p.m. and involved only one vehicle. Initial investigations showed that the driver of the vehicle lost control while he was attempting to maneuver around a curve. This caused the vehicle to hit a ditch, strike a driveway and roll afterward.

The driver of the vehicle suffered injuries from the accident, but the passenger was transported to the hospital for his injuries as well. The current conditions of the two people involved are unknown at this time. The accident is still under investigation by Alaska police, but police stated that the accident may have been caused by alcohol.

Regardless of whether the driver faces charges from Alaska police for his involvement in the car accident, the injured passenger may have the right to seek monetary compensation. Compensation, if awarded, could be used by the victim to pay for any hospital bills that are accrued as a result of the accident. Sudden hospital bills can often cause stress that inhibits healing; however, if such expenses were not a worry, this could allow the victim to heal in a more timely manner.
